ARG is grateful for the thousands of clients who have trusted us to advise them on their technology decisions and the client and partner referrals that built our business over the past 25 years. We are proud to return over $35,000,000 annually in savings to our clients with more than 40% of that going to non-profit organizations.
To celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2016, ARG asked our clients, our partners, and our community to help us celebrate with random acts of kindness. Over the years, ARG has repeatedly sponsored employee Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) programs that gave everyone $100 to go forth and make the world a better place. In 2016 we increased the program to $250 for each employee and encouraged others to join us in brightening the beltway region and beyond for 25 weeks.
What Is a Random Act of Kindness? A selfless act performed by a person or people wishing either to assist or to cheer up an individual person or people.
One thing most people struggle with is coming up with creative and caring ideas. Here are some examples of what we have done in the past:
- Care packages for homeless
- Care packages for troops
- Yard work or shopping help for someone in need
- Cold drinks for bus drivers, police, security guards, or construction workers
- Prepare a family for back to school
- School supplies for teachers
- Deliver meals to police/fire stations
- Paying for the person's coffee behind you
- Take toys or snacks to the ER waiting room
While 2016 is over, Random Acts of Kindness remains a part of ARG's culture. Feel free to join ARG in brightening your community, as you look through the stories on ARG's RAK Blog, you’ll see that many of them don’t cost a penny.
