AMCHAM NEWS Celebrating Thanksgiving with Generosity Over the years, our Thanksgiving fundraiser and social event has become a real tradition for our members. This year, AmCham encouraged member companies to support Red Cross Macedonia’s 3rd annual “Think of us” campaign that marks World Hunger Day by raising awareness and funds to help alleviate hunger among local families at risk. A total of 19 AmCham members got involved in at least one of the following ways: • By encouraging their employees to donate food and funds; • By donating company funds to purchase food products (distributed by the Red Cross); and • By donating products they manufacture. Specifically, the organizations that got involved in the campaign included: Okta, Ecotip, Makedonski Telekom, EVN Macedonia, Sparkasse Bank, Komercijalna Banka, Alpha Bank, Ohridska Bank, One.VIP, Skopski Pazar, Grant Thornton, DHL Macedonia, Karanovic & Nikolic,Tinex – MT, Cakmakova Advocates, FULM, Edna; as well as employees of Philip Morris – TKP Skopje and Feni Industries.  From left: Ilija Andreevski, Ecotip; Ioannis Geroulanos, Okta; Michelle Osmanli, AmCham Macedonia; and Slavko Projkoski, Makedonski Telekom 26   Winter 2016 Issue 48
