If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that the old adage is true: necessity truly is the mother of invention. It’s also shown us that when we work together, not only can we adapt, but we can overcome challenges and even achieve things we previously hadn’t thought were possible.
Our partners have been the very embodiment of those ideas over the course of this year, helping in ways large and small all around the world. Cisco, too, has leaned into the challenges that 2020 has thrown our way, and together we’ve worked to create the solutions our communities need most.
AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, and NEW YORK, November 30, 2020 /3BL Media/ – In the year 2020, in which the United Nations (UN) celebrates its 75th birthday, half of the world population (47%) trusts the UN and only 29% do not have trust in the UN. This is a substantially higher level of trust compared to the trust that citizens have in other (inter)governmental institutions such as the EU (38%), NATO (35%) or government (31%) or parliament (26%) in general. Among young people (18-24) the UN trust is highest (50% trust and 25% distrust).

The families receive bags of traditional Thanksgiving food items, including rice and stuffing mix, along with a $75 gift certificate. In total, more than 1,000 families — some selected by the community-based organizations — received bags.
At T-Mobile, we stand ready to serve those who serve us and are proud to support our veterans. Personally, I grew up admiring a veteran in my immediate family — my grandfather who served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Through our deep friendship and connection, I grew an appreciation and awe for veterans and their service to our country.
