This year, GolinHarris celebrated its fifth annual worldwide community service initiative, Al’s Day. The day honors founder and chairman Al Golin’s dedication to community service and is held each year on, or around, Al’s birthday on June 19.

Offices around the world celebrated Al’s Day by participating in activities ranging from volunteering at Café 458 in Atlanta to feed the homeless; to working with Little People, an international NGO providing care for children and young people affected by cancer in Bucharest; to painting murals and helping the Ashburn Community Elementary School in Chicago prepare for the new school year; to spending the day with the kids at Manzil Special Needs School in Dubai; to volunteering with client Ronald McDonald House Charities in Shanghai.

We’re happy to share, in the following pages, all of the ways in which we gave back on Al’s Day to help communities around the world look forward to a brighter day and a better year.
