“I wondered why somebody didn’t do something. Then I realized, I am somebody.” author unknown.
For the last 15 years, I have had the privilege of volunteering with a local charity at Christmas time. Share Our Selves is a social services organization that, among its many great works, does Adopt-A-Family every year.
This year, we helped 1,500 families (about 4,600 kids) have Christmas. And I got to share this wonderful experience with a man I call a friend, a client and colleague – Paul Pickett Chief Development Officer at Wild Birds Unlimited.
His willingness to forfeit a vacation day to do charitable work got me thinking about our generous franchising community and what “Franchising Gives Back” really means. Watch this conversation in Google Hangout, hosted by Deb Evans of Deb Evans Consulting, for some insights and ideas.
