Where are you running your business from?
I got into this business for a few reaosns
- I love the Internet
- Always been a fan of marketing
- Always been a dream to start my own company
- Was sick & tired of “working for the man”
- Work from home
- Help my local community
We always try to donate a certain amount of our revenue to charity. I am a big believer in helping local charities out. Well, I have been using LinkedIn a lot more and I came across a post in one of the Groups. It was for a charity called Project 150.
I checked out their site and did some research. I was hooked as it was a GREAT cause and I immediately wanted to help in any way that I could. I was fortunate enough to get a message from their co-founder about an event they were having (last week).
I attended the event and not only did I find out more about how great the cause was, I met some great people. They just got started last December after one of the founders (who is born and raised in Las Veas) saw a story on the news about how 5,000 STUDENTS are homeless in Las Vegas.
Yes, you read that correctly; “homeless students” and according to one of the founders the number was closer t 7,000!
I plan to use my Internet Marketing skills to help them get the word out, volunteer, donate and whatever else I can do. I plan to start using video and press releases to send out to the media. I plan to share some stores on my social media sites. I plan to blog about it here (and my businesses websites). I plan to talk with our local clients about this issue and see if they can help. I plan to do whatever I can.
Are you helping any local charities out?
