The Mackrell International ‘Connect the World Challenge’
The Mackrell International global, legal ‘family’ is coming together in 2021 to do something no legal network has done before – our lawyers from more than 100 law firms are going to ‘connect the world’, or at least, the two furthest points in our network, Vancouver and Auckland, to help look after the world’s children, in a small way, supporting Unicef and our homegrown grown charity Larchfield Children's Home in Tanzania.
Many of us can’t travel very far at the moment, but through a series of sponsored activities – run, bike, walk, bake, knit, paraglide, unicycle, space-hopper, keepie-uppies, singathons, we are going to connect our law firms, amass the many miles between the two points and raise money for charity.
Along the way, we will capture people’s unique stories, photos, videos and connecting efforts - highlighting a ‘connector’ of the week, spotlighting creativity, endurance and endeavour.
We will be highlighting a ‘Connector of the Week’ every week with images and story – so watch this space and make sure you sign up to get your firm mentioned along the way.
Our lawyers already do pro-bono work and our law firms have their own community CSR programmes, but this will show how united, connected and strong we are as a global network, the power of the collective to make a difference. As we always say around MI, we are stronger together.
