From 1 to 12 December, in anticipation of our X-Mas Party, X-Teamers come together to donate to causes they believe in. X-Team then tops up each individual X-Teamer donation with an additional $50. This year was no different, and X-Teamers donated to 21 different causes from around the world.

We believe in donating to those causes not because it's the right thing to do, but because we believe everyone should have the opportunity to lead a fulfilling life.

Here are the fantastic charities that we decided to support this year:
