VMLY&R Gives Back Across The World



The long-standing tradition of VMLY&R's "Foundation Day" continued this year

VMLY&R Gives Back Across The World

Continuing a long-standing tradition, VMLY&R – WPP’s brand and customer experience agency – closed its more than 100 offices across the globe for business on Thursday, Sept. 29, to give more than 13,000 employees the opportunity to support worthy causes and non-profit organisations of their choice through volunteer projects. 

This year’s theme for VMLY&R’s Worldwide Foundation Day is “Make Your Mark”, where employees were encouraged - regardless of whether they engage virtually or in person, individually or with a small group, or with family members - to do something that resonated with them. The day aimed to highlight the collective impact of all employees rolling up their sleeves to give back in meaningful ways over the same 24-hour period. 

In Aotearoa: 

VMLY&R Auckland supported Family Action and cleaned Western Springs Lakeside Park.

VMLY&R Wellington volunteered with Clean Where You Walk, removing plastic from Wellington’s beaches and contributed to public art installations with the Wellington Sculpture Trust.

In Australia: 

VMLY&R Brisbane volunteered with Conservation Volunteers Australia and Daisy Hill Conservation Park to help rehabilitate local wetlands and enhance the biodiversity of a national park.

VMLY&R Melbourne and Sydney volunteered with Legacy Australia to reimagine a modern donation box, sorted and packaged clothing for redistribution at UPPAREL Recycling Centre, and organised Bondi, Wollongong, Manly and St Kilda beach clean-up efforts.

“The annual VMLY&R Foundation Day is a really special time for our team. Having a positive impact on the societies we live in has always been a core value to VMLY&R since we began.” said Thomas Tearle, VMLY&R CEO in Australia and New Zealand. “It’s amazing to see our five offices across Australia and New Zealand make their own unique marks in their individual communities. Being a part of this global initiative is such a privilege and demonstrates that this really is the most connected agency network on the planet with over 100 offices doing this in unison.”
