This week here at Wonderland we wanted to highlight companies making a difference. Boxed is a membership free company that ships wholesale sizes of your favorite products right to your door. Recently their CEO, Cheih Huang, did something absolutely amazing for his employees. He offered to pay $20,000 towards their weddings!! This gesture was sparked by the need of one particular hard working gentleman, Marcel. Below is the must see viral video!
I was so amazed at the generosity from such a huge company like Boxed. Far too often big companies look over the needs of their employees and fail to see them as humans with lives outside of work. What Boxed did was to take time to listen and recognize the needs of their own, especially Marcel who was working double shifts to pay for his wedding. Marcel’s urgency was because he wanted to get married before his ailing mother was too sick to attend. A wedding is not a cheap endeavor as anyone who has already had their big day or is currently planning theirs knows. This gift allowed Marcel to share this special day with his mother and is an inspiration for each of us.
