These days, many neighborhoods use a website to help neighbors connect immediately with those surrounding them. In one community, members warn one another of mountain lion sightings and wildfire evacuation orders, as well as supply one another with child care when the need arises. It has even proven to be a resource for locating runaway pets. By leveraging the power of the internet, those living near one another are connecting again in ways that are often lost in today’s fast-paced world.
We also decided a few years back to leverage the power of the internet ‘for good’ via the launch of GoodWorks 360° – delivering mission-critical pro bono services to deserving nonprofits around the world, bolstering our longstanding commitment to “moving forward by giving back.”
Although our affiliated site continues to operate as a “stand-alone” venture, we use the immense power of our brand, our global audience, and our massive social media presence to shine a beacon of light on the many nonprofits we’ve collaborated with since launch in October 2018. Along the way, we’ve truly been blessed by ‘virtually’ attracted the services of over four dozen talented professionals, each offering their expertise free of charge for the good of nonprofits in need.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Inspired by so many kindred spirits, we’ve now taken the next step by now transforming our GoodWorks 360° venture into an actual registered nonprofit (GoodWorks 360° Foundation), poised to continue delivering pro bono services, but complemented by the ability to deliver qualified grants and targeted donations to nonprofits in need:
This added capability will enhance our ability to positively impact the nonprofits we serve while adding credence to the old adage we’ve embraced from day one;
We make a living by what we get – we make a life by what we give.
