RE Cares Month, spotlighting global community involvement, takes place each September. In 2012, thousands of employees took part in creative volunteering and fundraising. For example, Elsevier San Diego made blankets as part of Project Linus to support terminally ill children; LexisNexis Risk Solutions in Georgia held its 14th Annual Windward Challenge, a 5km community race with more than 500 registrants to help KaBoom! build a playground in an underserved area of Atlanta; LexisNexis Australia held a swap market for unwanted clothes, shoes, and accessories with all funds donated to Project Futures; Reed Exhibitions in the US cleaned, painted, and decorated a teen shelter with Kids in Crisis; and RBI UK held an all-employee cake sale for 250 staff to benefit their 2012 charity partners, including The Royal Marsden. In addition, we held our sixth RE Cares Month Global Book Drive, with employees donating more than 12,000 books to charitable organisations. We gave $1,000 for the charity of choice to the office donating the largest relative number of books.
