2022シスコジャパン災害支援基金 2022 Cisco Japan Disaster Relief Fund
2022年になってから、各地で災害が発生しています。中でも先日の大分で発生した地震では、液状化や250件以上の家屋に被害が出ました。 現在、私たちが住んでいる日本も含めて、世界中でボランティアや支援を必要としている人たちがいます。このような難しい局面である時こそ、私達のConscious Culture (自己理解、他者への理解、自分が他者(チーム、お客様、より大きなコミュニティー)にもたらす影響に常に目を向け理解し、意図的に行動することにより最高の体験を生み出す)を体現し、サポートを必要としている人たちを支援していきましょう。 Since the year 2022, disasters have been occurring in many places. Among them, the recent earthquake in Oita caused liquefaction and damage to more than 250 houses. There are people all over the world, including our own Japan, who are in need of volunteers and support. It is in these difficult times that we must embody our Conscious Culture (self-awareness, understanding of others, always looking at and understanding the impact we have on others (our team, our customers, the larger community), and acting intentionally to create the best possible experience) and help those who need support. Let's help those who need support.
Jeff Lee Memorial Fund

Jeff Lee Memorial Fund
On January 16th, Jeff Lee, our VMware teammate and a CloudHealth Solutions Engineer, passed away tragically and unexpectedly surrounded by his family and friends. Jeff was an incredible colleague and friend who impacted many lives. He had a constant smile and a helpful spirit, always making people around him and VMware better. On behalf of Jeff, contributing to this fund is an opportunity to honor him by donating to charities he was passionate about and ones that mattered to him and his family. These are the charities that have been selected to honor Jeff's life: ► New England Wildlife Center ◀ The New England Wildlife Center was so important to Jeff and his girlfriend, it's the charity that Jeff recently encouraged his teammates to donate to with their 2021 VMware $50 'Gift of Connection' funds. The Center provides humane veterinary care to sick, injured, and orphaned exotic wildlife as not only a way to help animals in need but also to teach life sciences to K-12 students and veterinary medicine to undergraduate students. Jeff's Girlfriend, Stefanie, worked at the center and Jeff was known to regularly volunteer with the animals. To further emphasize Jeff's love of the New England Wildlife Center, Jeff and Stefanie adopted several turtles that needed ongoing veterinary care to take into their home. After Jeff's passing, Stefanie is still going to care for the turtles they adopted together. Your donation to The New England Wildlife Center will allow them to give animals and people a place to thrive, a cause that Jeff deeply cared about. ► The Brain Aneurysm Foundation ◀ Based in Massachusetts, The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is the largest private funder of brain aneurysm research in the United States. Jeff lost his life to a sudden and tragic Brain Aneurysm. However, brain aneurysms are treatable, which is why identifying an aneurysm before rupture is critical. A minimum of 1 in 50 people have an unruptured brain aneurysm, with 30,000 people a year rupturing and half those people dying. Considering the prevalence and severity of this disease, there are still too many unanswered questions – When do aneurysms form? What makes an aneurysm rupture? How would I know if a loved one or I were at risk? These questions, combined with the fact the federal government only spends $2.08 on brain aneurysm research per year per person affected, is why we have to help fund this cause. We must do better in honor of Jeff and through donating to the research and activism of The Brain Aneurysm Foundation we will.
