PANDORA’S My School Project

Now in its 11th consecutive year, PANDORA’s ‘My School Project’ is one of the longest running charity initiatives for the company. The initiative gives PANDORA employees in Thailand the chance to help the school they once attended.

In some areas of Thailand, especially rural areas, school buildings can still be run-down and filled with old equipment, which may lower the quality of education. PANDORA’s ‘My School Project’ gives its employees in Thailand a chance to give back to their local communities.

Each year, PANDORA’s employees in Thailand can nominate the school that they once attended for the project. Once a school has been chosen, the project of both renovating and building facilities begins with the materials paid for by PANDORA.

Working ‘Miracles’ With Baseball

Wells Fargo volunteer George Baskerville devotes hundreds of hours every year to bring baseball to kids with disabilities

When George Baskerville, a project manager for Wells Fargo Advisors, saw an article about the construction of a baseball diamond adapted especially for players with disabilities, he was intrigued — but he had no idea it would lead to the start of a decade-long passion. Out of curiosity, he took his then 9-year-old son to the ribbon-cutting. Since that day, he has spent hundreds of Saturday mornings at that same site, doing everything from setting up equipment to running wheelchair-bound players around the bases.
