Here at Experience, giving back is an important part of our DNA. We’re always looking for ways we can help the community—whether volunteering for Boys and Girls Club events, pitching in for holiday food drives, or even donating funds to local charities, we’re dedicated to giving back throughout the year.
During uncertain times like the ones we’re facing now, that’s no exception. With this in mind, we’ve transformed our technology to help those most in need during the COVID-19 outbreak with Love4Live.
Love4Live is our mobile ticketing platform, reimagined. Due to the flexible nature of our technology, the Experience team has repurposed our platform to serve as an outlet to make donations to four organizations close to our hearts: Crew Nation, Feeding America, Giving Kitchen, and INTIX. In addition, Experience has made a donation to each of these organizations to show our commitment to helping the community during this time of great need.
“Understanding the current climate, we knew that now was the time for our company to come together and use our technology to help play a small part in helping however possible. We’re proud to use our platform for this purpose and give back to our communities.”JUNIOR GASPARD, CEO
Please help us in supporting these organizations and their missions: providing food to those affected by food insecurity, supporting food service workers, and helping live event staff who have been impacted. Please consider donating today.
