I learned today that I'm working for a company that actually helps out when people in need ask for it.

I was already impressed that the company's foundation gave 250K EUR for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines and additionally promised to double their employees' donations.

But today we received a letter from a family (not the family of one of our employees, just strangers) who are in dire financial needs because they have two severely disabled children. I felt really sorry for them, it was a terrible story. But I honestly believed that was it. With my former employer that would have been the end. Maybe someone would have sent an answer, but only if they were having a good day.

My new employer on the other hand has someone whose job (among others) it is to check out such letters and, if they are true, to send money to the families. They actually have standard sums for people who had triplets because it's so common that they get requests!
