Tartan Day is a celebration of Scottish heritage held on April 6, the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320, confirming Scotland’s status as an independent sovereign state.
Here at Groupon we love our pets. From pampered pooches to treasured tortoises we have them all! But not all pets are as spoiled as ours and sadly, some suffer neglect and abuse and rely on the kindness of strangers to nurse them back to health and happiness.
With a change in leadership at Groupon in the last few weeks, we now have two interim co-CEOs – Executive Chairman Eric Lefkofsky and Vice Chairman Ted Leonsis, who will share the CEO duties.
The latter, Ted Leonsis, is a very interesting man indeed. He owns an NBA and NHL franchise, and he was one of the major figures behind rise and success of AOL – a true veteran of the “dotcom” bubble. He also has his very own, a widely popular blog, ‘Ted’s Take’, on the US based sport and entertainment site – The Monumental Network.
Following our post last Friday announcing the launch of our Groupon Grassroots initiative, our next Social Innovation update explains how we like to utilise the passion of the people at Groupon, within our “People, Passion, Platform” philosophy.
In line with the Groupon Grassroots initiative we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our Employee Volunteer Programme. This is designed to give Groupon staff the opportunity to volunteer in a variety of programmes that make a difference in local communities, and help other charitable causes.
Today is World Poetry Day! Being blessed as we are with a talented Editorial Department, we decided to test one of our writers on the spot, with the task of composing a limerick related to Groupon. Here is what he came up with…
…mmm, well, they can’t get it right all of the time.
Can you do better? Post your limerick in the comments
