Each year, right before Christmas season MT Group together with another group company Nord Steel gathers their teams for charity initiatives. Sharing with the ones in greater need started back in 2012. Since then, charity projects became an important part of the companies internal culture, each year replacing traditional Christmas gift-giving within the team and beyond. 

Continuing the tradition, at the end of last year, 6 different teams were formed within the MT Group. Each of them was given a budget and full freedom to choose the donation they wanted to make. All the teams combined donated almost €8000 to various organizations and individuals during the month of December.

„Corporations usually choose to partner with particular NGO organizations and dedicate all their support into one basket. We have chosen a different way: we want MT Group’s sponsorship initiatives to be personal, so that each team member truly experiences the value of sharing,“ says Simonas Kunickas, General Manager at MT Group.

Last year MT Group donations were mostly oriented towards helping children who live in challenging circumstances, suffer from difficult illnesses or are lacking the love and care from their family members. MT Group got to know many vulnerable, but loving families too, as well as small, but very important organizations in local communities that help others.

As we get up close and personal with the various challenges in life, which none of us are protected from, we appreciate more the simple things we often forget in our daily lives – health, smiling loved ones by our side, personal success, and achievements at work. This tradition helps us to be grateful for what we have and for what we can share with others.
