We find great purpose in working for something bigger than ourselves. It is a great thrill collaborating with our communities in our giving.
There’s an old saying that “the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.” Often statistics like these can be overwhelming and even paralyzing to the point of inaction. However, we believe we have a responsibility to take a step to contribute where we can to ending these problems. We can’t rely on governments, or someone else to do it for us. As members of our business communities, we feel a responsibility to put our resources to task. Besides partnering with local, national and international ministries and foundations to attack these issues, we’ve also created our own non-profit organization that exists solely to contribute to the global reduction of homelessness, the orphan epidemic, and child trafficking.
Our efforts may only be first steps on the journey. However, we believe that if we can make first steps, inspire our clients to make first steps and inspire other community businesses and leaders to make first steps, perhaps together we can make significant progress on this 1,000 mile journey.
