As a software provider to businesses in over thirty-five countries, we consider ourselves a conscientious member of the international business community. With that in mind, Main Sequence Technologies recently donated several hundred dollars to Foodland.com’s Kōkua Japan campaign, helping to raise money for the victims of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Kōkua, as our Hawaii-based software trainer Greg explained at a recent company meeting, is a Hawaiian word meaning “help”, with a connotation of community and friendship.
The opportunity presented itself while our CFO, Gretchen Kubicek, was in Maui for the Management Recruiters International Pacesetter Conference. Seeing the fundraising Kōkua Japan t-shirts at Foodland, Hawaii’s largest locally owned and operated grocery retailer, she purchased their entire stock to bring back to Cleveland for the Main Sequence team. All the proceeds from the shirts go to the Red Cross for relief to the needy in Japan.
