The number of projects supported lies at about the same Level as the prior year. A more focused selection of projects resulted in a small increase in the number of people supported. Employee projects required fewer days off from work in 2013 than the prior year. Generally speaking, employees may request up to five days off from work per year for volunteer activities. Total donations also increased compared to the prior year. This was due to special involvement in providing emergency aid in Germany and the Philippines.
