Every year in December, in anticipation of the X-Mas Party, X-Team organizes its annual charity drive: 12 Days of X-Mas. X-Teamers donate to their favorite charities and X-Team matches each donation up to an additional $50. It's one of the ways we contribute to society and help make the world a better place.

These were the fantastic charities X-Teamers donated to this year.
