This iReport is part of an assignment:
Tell us the Good Stuff!
Random Act of Kindness... or authentic Corporate Social Responsibility?
Some organisations speak about Corporate Responsibility - others simply do it!
When AIESEC New Zealand powered a unique meeting to activate global youth leadership, they planned to bring together young leaders from eight New Zealand Universities and connect them with Leadership Role Models.
Hamish Walton, Owner operator, PAK'nSAVE Mill St., Hamilton heard about the event. Mr. Walton wanted to show his support to this awesome youth development initiative and asked his master baker to bake for the occasion. When the cake was brought in during the conference, the young leaders were so moved by this kind gesture that all stopped for a huge Thank You call.
Ally Tiang, WINTEC Computer student was onsite and reported on the events of the day. Watch his video story at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCRlSYYnmaA&feature=youtu.be
Nothing is more gratifying than being recognised for your efforts - as were the hundred youth gathered that day... As the proverbial New Zealand expression goes: Sweet as!! ... and thank you so much to the PAK'n SAVE Mill St. bakers responsible for this treat!!
Random Act of Kindness... or authentic Corporate Social Responsibility?... Well, at the very least it is Community support at its best - and a moment to be remembered!
