Yesterday at VMworld I went to the hangspace as my friends from the VMware Foundation were there. They have a great section in the hangspace where you can give back to the community by simply throwing a paper airplane. The program is called “Destination Give Back” and is a great opportunity for VMware to share our values through YOU, the community / customers /partners!
Before I explain how it works, the VMware foundation committed to donating a maximum 250.000 dollars.
How It Works:
- As a member of the VMware community, we invite attendees to have some fun and Give Back with us by flying a paper airplane.
- Attendees, learn about a few sample causes (Children, Education, Environment, Human Rights, Women and Girls) selected by VMware employees through the stories on display, and choose the cause they are passionate about.
- People get to test their ingenuity by building and flying a paper airplane for the cause they have chosen. The distance the plane traveled determines the amount that will be donated by the VMware Foundation to the cause of choice.
So to be clear, you as the person throwing the plane will not make the donation… throwing the plane as far as you possibly can is all you need to do. The farther it will go, the higher the donation will be. 83 feet is the record so far. So make sure to stop by at the hangspace, spent 2 minutes of your VMworld time and give back!
