Cubicle Chicks and Dudes are fabulous because we believe in giving back. Despite our hectic schedules and busy work life, taking time out to donate time and money to worthy causes is something we do because we believe in doing things for others. And when giving back helps raise money for an organization doing great things, I must participate in it and spread the love.
