Our Christmas Mission

A Mission is Born

Christmas: ‘tis the season of joy, togetherness, and gratitude. We’re reminded of these heartwarming themes in the Christmas movies we watch every year, the carols we all know the words to, and the cards we send and receive.

Unfortunately, not everyone is privileged enough to enjoy the holidays the same way. The reality is, this time of year for some serves only as a reminder of how little they have.

With that in mind, Clearbridge created an initiative with the intention of making the lives of those around us #better

This is how the Christmas Mission came to be! For the last two years, each member of our team has been given $100 and a mission: to find someone (or a group of people) that could use a little extra help during the Christmas season. 

Keep your eyes open for opportunities in which you can give. Just go with it—you’re not going to regret it!

Deanna’s Story

Last year, we asked everyone that participated in the Christmas Mission to share their story and what it meant to them so that we could pass it along to our customers, friends, families with the hope of inspiring them to do something similar. 

The video below is just one of the many stories we heard.

Our Third Mission—Join Us!

This December will mark our third Christmas Mission! We invite you to join us in finding a way to create your own Christmas Mission and to make a positive impact on the world around you. Below is a video recap of each one of our team members’ missions, ending off with a story about how our Christmas Mission inspired another company to do create their own Christmas Mission for 2020—with over 70 employees! 

This year has presented challenges for all of us, and some will feel the impacts this Christmas more than ever. What is your Christmas mission this year? How can you positively impact the lives of those around you? Looking for a way to give? Check out our One-To-Many initiative and consider a gift this Christmas.
