We love to celebrate our colleagues, and we love giving back to our community – so several years ago, BlueModus decided to combine these two loves. Each month, our Management Team selects two colleagues who shine and represent the values that make BlueModus a great place to work. These two colleagues select a charity, and BlueModus donates on their behalf.
This month, one of those colleagues is Shawn Monte. He recently joined our team as a Senior QA Engineer, and his impact on the team has been felt immediately. He is fantastic at testing and finding bugs, but he is the ultimate team player with a willingness to jump in wherever or however he can best help our team and clients.
Recently, BlueModus made a $500 donation to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on behalf of Shawn. St. Jude leads the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Their mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for catastrophic pediatric diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay.
“Over the years, we have had family and friends deal with and succumb to some type of cancer. As a parent, I can’t imagine what it would be like to deal with a child faced with something so serious, let alone the normal family obligations while going through times like those,” shares Shawn. “So, through St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, hopefully, we can help alleviate some of the pressure families may face and focus on the child’s healing instead.”
