12 Days of Giving 2023


Over the past four years, ELAM has embraced a heartwarming tradition: “12 Days of Giving.” Launched this year on Giving Tuesday and running until December 14, our team and clients embark on a journey of generosity, dedicating our efforts to support various charitable causes. It’s a time-honoured tradition where our employees, teachers, and clients come together to nominate and choose charitable organizations. This year, as in the past, we have continued this tradition, promoting joy and making a positive impact on the world. Join us on this donating journey as we unveil the recipients of our giving this year, showcasing the remarkable organizations we’ve had the privilege to support.
