Office video shows at-desk snow removal, elevator carolers, and magical Christmas cannon;
every video ‘like’ to support Mélanie’s Way charity and help grant Disney wish to young mom with cancer
TORONTO, ON/NEW YORK, NY – December 6, 2018 – Christmas comes but once a year? Not for employees at Klickmas, the world’s first company to eat, breathe, and sleep the yuletide 365 days a year, according to new footage that’s just surfaced on YouTube. For each video ‘like’, the company will donate a $1 (up to $10,000) to Mélanie’s Way, a wish-granting charity for young women with metastatic or relapsed cancer, to help send a 40-year-old stage 4 cancer patient and her family to a Disney resort.
Klickmas, officially launched today by health marketing and technology company Klick Inc., follows in the frosty footsteps of tinsel towns, such as North Pole, Alaska; Santa Claus, Indiana; and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, which are known for spreading joy and the festive spirit throughout the year.
“We are thrilled to establish the world’s first all-Christmas, all-the-time lifestyle agency,” said Klick CEO and Co-Founder Leerom Segal. “At Klickmas, we believe that by putting Christmas culture at the heart of everything we do and infusing as much holiday cheer as we can into everything we do, we will have the happiest-possible Klicksters and clients – and as they say, the more the merrier.”
Every inch of office decked out for merriment
The video shows every inch of the Klickmas office decked out for merriment with cool (freezing cold, really) perks, like desk-side snowball fights, employee snow angels in the hallways, a fruitcake vending machine, and Turkey Tuesdays – a seasonal shift from tacos.
The company’s digital innovation lab, renamed Santa’s Workshop, shows off its latest technological invention: a Christmas cannon that can instantly ‘Christmasify’ employees’ clothing with holiday bling. Meeting rooms are wallpapered in patchworks of gift boxes. There’s a living, breathing, six-foot-tall elf on a shelf, a snow globe-like boardroom, even a quartet of carolers singing “The 365 Days of Klickmas” up and down the elevators.
Unfortunately, things start to go awry when the facilities team can’t keep up with snow removal between the desks, the drinking water keeps freezing, and Klicksters start to experience festive fatigue. Job candidates aren’t left unscathed in the video either, bombarded with a flurry of unexpected interview questions, like “Any tinsel allergies?” “What are the names of the three wise men?” “Three of Santa’s reindeer begin with the letter ‘D’ – name them.” “Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?”
Truth be told, Segal says Klickmas is the latest installment of Klick’s popular annual holiday videos, which star Klicksters, are filmed at its offices, showcase the company’s award-winning, people-centric culture, and raise funds for those in need.
Klickmas to grant mom with cancer’s wish to take her family to Disney
The company is donating a dollar for each of the first 10,000 Klickmas video ‘likes’ on YouTube to Mélanie’s Way charity to fund the wish of a 40-year-old woman with stage 4 breast cancer named Kate. A former Disney on Ice skater with three children under the age of 10 and a YouTube video series called “What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting Cancer,” Kate says she wants to take her family on a trip to Aulani, a Disney Resort, “to take photos together so the kids can look back and remember the special trip we shared in Hawaii.”
Last year, Klick’s viral “You Make Winter Warm” holiday video achieved nearly three million views and raised funds to buy new winter coats for children living below the poverty line. Over the years, Klick’s holiday videos have been featured on CBS News, CNN, Comedy Central, Entertainment Tonight, and in many other media outlets around the world.
Klick is committed to making a difference in the lives of others through conscious acts of giving. Throughout the year, it supports a wide range of charities around the world, including the Daily Bread Food Bank, Heart & Stroke Foundation, Kiva Microfunds, Plan International, SickKids, The Shoebox Project for Shelters, Stupid Cancer, and WE Charity.
