Recently at the Celanese company headquarters in Dallas, more than 40 non-profit organizations in the areas of health, education, hunger and shelter spent two hours sharing their organizations services with more than 250 employees and visitors at the Celanese Foundation Annual Giving Fair. The event was followed up with a survey allowing employees the opportunity to provide feedback on agencies and areas they want the Celanese Foundation to financially support in the future.

Hope is so important to this endeavor, and it was encouraging to see hope in action. As an event planner for Celanese, setting up and preparing for the organizations, employees and guests — and then watching everyone interacting and sharing stories — made the event energetic and alive; real people helping real people. It was a pleasure seeing people who care about others, some directly impacted by the organization they now promote, offering hope to others in their pursuit of making the world a better place.

It was an honor to be part of this key event representing one of the Celanese values – Improving the World!
