Stibbe Charity Weeks December 2017

08.01.2018

In December, our colleagues at the Brussels and Luxembourg offices participated in a number of activities to raise awareness and money for various charities.

Here’s a summary of the activities that took place during those weeks of giving.

  • Thirty-five Stibbees defied the cold and rain to participate in the Warmathon in Brussels. Together they ran and walked 301.6 km.
  • There was a fierce football game between Team Partners & Counsel against Team Associates & Staff. It was a very close game won: 4 – 6!
  • Some special fundraising events organized by one’s own initiatives or of the department required creativity and even culinary skills: dessert sale, hotdog sale, yoga, raffle sale, … and many others.
  • There were 18 internal Stibbe challenges. One of the biggest was the Shoebox Challenge: all Stibbees were challenged to fill a shoebox with non-perishable food, which would be distributed to the homeless. Stibbees filled up 127 shoeboxes by the end of the charity weeks. For the cycling challenge, ten Stibbe cyclists rode 3259 km in participation with the worldwide Festive500 initiative.

The charities that were beneficiaries of the Stibbe Charity Weeks are: Viva for life, Toekomsatelier/Atelier de l’avenir, Blijdorp Bubao project, Fonds Ngangi, Gandalf, Mothers for Mothers, Luxembourg Red Cross, Shelter, Lawyers Without Borders, Music for Life, Skateistan, Kom op tegen kanker, and The Samaritans.

Elisabeth Matthys was interviewed by Studio Brussels about our charity weeks. Click here to hear the interview (in Dutch).

Stibbe and the Stibbees raised €16,252 total for the different charities.

Let’s see if we can beat that in December 2018!
