Celebrating success by giving back to society 

As part of its annual tradition, Datavard celebrated the end of the year with a a charity auction. As a company, we are grateful for our success and we want to support initiatives that benefit society. Giving back to the community is at the very core of our business and this year, once again, we chose to support the Black Jaguar Foundation. The Black Jaguar Foundation is involved in an ambitious land restoration project in Brazil.

We at Datavard are devoted to building a better future,” explains Datavard CEO and founder Gregor Stoeckler. As a natural part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, we are seriously committed to the UN‘s Sustainable Development Goals and specifically aim to take bold climate action. I have known Ben Valks and his team at the Black Jaguar Foundation for many years and love their work, dedication, and commitment. 

Raising money through an online auction 

In true 2020 style, this year’s auction needed to be different. So, instead of meeting in our favorite pub, the charity auction moved online. This meant that for the first time the event was not just limited to the Bratislava office. This year all Datavardians could join in, allowing for a greater array of prizes and an even greater outcome than in previous years. Datavardians offered up various lots, such as home-made wine, a virtual Zumba class, and even a weekend getaway at a Swiss cottage.

The bidding was, as always, extremely competitive, and ended up raising a grand total of 3,480 euros, which was then doubled by the Datavard senior management team and donated to the Black Jaguar Foundation. 

Planting 3480 trees to help the planet 

The Black Jaguar Foundation is dedicated to one of South America’s largest reforestation projects. They are helping to realize the Araguaia Biodiversity Corridor, which is an extremely important region for the entire planet producing 20% of the world’s oxygen and 30% of clean drinking water. With Datavard’s donation, they will be able to plant 3480 indigenous trees. This in turn will help improve biodiversity, mitigate climate change, preserve critical water resources, and contribute to managing our carbon footprint.
