BigCommerce’s Hearts in Carts program helps out 1,000 foster children in Central Texas.

In the Silicon Hills this time of year, tech companies go to great lengths to help out others in need.

HeartsInCarts-2-1Among them, BigCommerce has been working with Partnerships for Children, which works with Central Texas foster children. This is the third year BigCommerce has partnered with the organization to provide toys to kids in foster care in its Holiday Wishes campaign.

During Bigcommerce’s “Hearts in Carts” program first year in 2012, its employees supported 50 children through the program. Last year that number rose to 150. This year, BigCommerce sponsored 1,000 kids as part of Partnerships for Children’s Holiday wishes program. Its founders pledged to support more than 700 children.

HeartsInCarts-3-1“Our culture is a really important part of what makes us who we are at Bigcommerce,” Bigcommerce President Steve Power said in a statement. “We’re a “Team on a Mission” and part of that mission is to help change people’s lives, whether that may be through ecommerce software, or initiatives that support our local community, like our Hearts in Carts program….This program is a wonderful opportunity for us to lead by example. This year we are trying to put a smile on hundreds of children’s faces, who otherwise may not have such a happy Christmas”
