Since my first post today is about charitable giving, it was interesting to find Seth Godin had written in the same vein today. He talked about a company that sends $8 checks out with holiday cards that the recipient can give to their favorite charity. I love the idea.
When we started Certified Networker of Ohio, we decided that right from the beginning we wanted to give to charity. Each class that graduates has an MVP chosen from the member ranks. Before the class series ever begins each student is asked to list their favorite charity. At graduation the MVP is announced and this individual is presented with a check for his (or her) charity. Now, I have to tell you, the amount is only $50, but each charity representative has assured me that they love every dollar given to them.
How does your company give charitably on a regular basis?
