Giving Back....what a novel concept!!!!!

Giving Back....what a novel concept!!!!!

There are certain times of the year that everyone feels compelled to give. Even if they don't want to. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Valentines Day, at church, and Anniversaries just to name a few. But what about the 350 something other days of the year? Are we just giving to ourselves or do we really even pay attention to what's happening in the world around us? We may talk about, sure, oh yeah, " Next year, I'm definitely going too give to blanky blank charity or volunteer some of my time." But when do we really make it important enough to commit to doing so. Now don't get me wrong, I know someone is reading this right now saying, "Hey, I give.... I did this _____ and this____ and I gave to _____." Then kudos to you, but to all the successful companies and people that have the ability to give, are you? Are you helping make a difference in someones life that is less fortunate? Well, I hope you do. Level Ten has had the opportunity to work with some great non-profits from the National Breast Cancer Foundation to the United Way and after being touched first hand by the people and their stories, decided it wanted to get involved in multiple ways. On November 15th, Level Ten will launch the first of many tele-seminars that will reach out to Non-Profits and share our knowledge and expertise on subjects from Search Engine Optimization to Viral Marketing. We also launched a series of monthly seminars that will offer local companies and individuals the opportunity to meet our staff and ask those mind boggling questions of "How do we get to......." so they can start implementing ideas and strategies to start seeing results instead of theory. Level Ten is also putting measures into place to pick certain non-profits to donate to from a partial of the proceeds of holding the seminars. Several of my colleagues and I are participating in a Leukemia walk and several other incredible opportunities to reach out to those less fortunate and really help make a difference, in people's lives and in our community. I think we forget sometimes that it is OUR community that so many of these people live that need our support. So give today, give something, even if it is a hug!
