During the holidays, I find I spend more time reflecting on my surroundings and how I can be more charitable in my day-to-day activities. It is great when you have the opportunity to connect these goals with other individuals and organizations.
Advice Interactive Group is one of those organizations that I have a strong connection with. Not just because I work here, but also because we have a common core value, which is to further the digital marketing industry, provide education, and help people by giving of time, money and resources.
How do we give?
- Fund the development of cutting edge technology to expand the digital marketing industry, which helps every business owner, small and large.
- Support non-profits with monetary donations like Educational First Steps, Cornerstone Ranch and TryMunity, the non-profit founded by the CEO, Bernadette Coleman, after her son suffered a traumatic brain injury.
- Sponsor local organizations meetings, profit, non-profit, small and large in the digital space.
So why having I been thinking about this today?
Because a current project the Advice team is working on is building awareness for the Tree Classics charitable giving campaign. Tree Classics has committed to 15 charities a minimum donation of $500, plus a percentage of each Christmas tree they sell between now and Christmas.
So where you do you come into play? And how can you help?
- Blog about Tree Classics and charity giving on your website
- Share about their chartable giving campaign on your social media
- Make a purchase on their website and select a charity to support
- Donate as little as $5 to one of the participating charities and be entered to win a prize
So let’s go back to the receiving part … How does giving help you receive?
Let me name a few ways it has helped Advice:
- Recognized leader in the digital marketing industry because of their cutting edge technology focus.
- Reputation of being a giving corporation, a perk when other giving corporations decide who to hire.
- Local organizations extend exclusive invites, opportunities and connections.
Giving doesn’t always means money. It can be your time, resources, introductions and ideas.
I want to close with this … What have you gave? And what did you receive in return?
(BTW … if you blog, share or donate let us know you did it by commenting and we’ll see what we can do to help you receive, even if it as little as a smile, a tweet or a Thank You.)
