A coworker of mine lost a grand daughter last week - she was stillborn

He obviously needed sometime off - but our company didn't cover grievance days for grandchildren -

So I called hr and asked if I could gift him a week of my vacation time - I have so much time banked and I know he only has 3 days left because he had just told me he was running low -

They changed company policy because of his situation and gave him a week off with pay -

I decided to " cash in" a week of my vacation time - its where you just take the pay for the vacation,but not take the time off -

It will be in my account next Friday, so I sent the family a check for the full amount

A woman from her donated 1000 dollars and my site ( 7 other people ) was able to accumulate 800between the 7 of them -

I really am proud of our company for pulling together for this man
