Ogier benefits Kiwanis, Doctors

Ogier recently kicked off its 2007 Dress Down Day fundraising programme, raising $2,750.

According to a release by the law firm, the sum was split between the Kiwanis Club chapter and Doctors Without Borders.

The fundraising programme, now in its third year, raises money for pre-selected charitable organisations each month.

Employees make donations in exchange for the opportunity to dress in casual attire on Fridays.

Doctors Without Borders was the first charitable organisation to receive Ogier’s donations this year. The money raised went toward providing medical care to people in war-torn Darfur.

The firm’s donation to the Kiwanis Club went toward its Buy a Kid Breakfast Programme.
