Dans La Rue, a Montreal-based charity that works with street kids and at-risk youth aged 12 to 25 to provide food, shelter and support programs, will be getting $1783.94 in donations raised by employees of Payza, a leading online payment platform, through a variety of holiday season charity drives. The team also collected non-perishable food, toys and clothing to donate to the worthy cause. You can learn more about Dans La Rue and the work they do on their website: www.danslarue.com .
The most popular holiday fundraising event among the Payza crew was definitely the Pie-A-Payzano pie toss. Tickets were sold to nominate Payza executives for the honor of becoming the Pied Payzano. This year, Faisal, Payza’s Compliance Officer, was the lucky recipient of a whole lot of pies to the face.
Faisal spends his time making sure Payza, which specializes in global payment solutions, remains compliant with the strict rules and regulations that online payment providers must follow, which makes him the company’s watchdog and chief disciplinarian. That said, the team was more than happy to reward his hard work with this highly unsought after honor.
Payza Executive VP, Ferhan Patel, was also nominated for the honors and took a surprising amount of pies to the face for someone who could make life difficult for the pie throwers.
JayCee from customer support, product manager Marcos and Luke from customer support also bravely volunteered for the Pie-A-Payzano event. Dozens of pies were sold to be launched at them, all for a good cause.
The best quote from the event goes to Monzir, who could be heard observing “He’s more pie than man!”
A big thank you goes out to Pam in Learning and Development as well as Rachelle, Crystal and Kristina in Human Resources, and Karen, Payza’s office coordinator, for helping to organize all the fundraising events and to everyone that volunteered and donated as well.
