On Dec. 1, we gave every X-Teamer $50 to donate toward any charity, cause, open source project, foundation, etc.
Within a few days, they'd donated to more than 30 different causes in 15 countries around the world.
We were so inspired learning about all of the amazing work being done around the world, we had to share some of them here.
Thank you again to all of the X-Teamers who participated in this. Also to X-Teamers Noah Muth and Josh Johnston who, at our X-Mas Party, won $500 in charity money to give toward the charities of their choice.
Hopefully this inspires you as well to join our team in giving to a meaningful cause in your life and wrap up 2016 knowing you helped impact someone's life.
