Better Business and Charity

It’s just better business practice to support your community and support charity.

How can you benefit your business and do something good for your community?  Get involved in your community and help to support a local charity.

For example, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month; there are many local charities that you could volunteer your time and your services to help.

Here in Jacksonville, there are several annual events to help raise Breast Cancer Awareness on the First Coast:

Pink Ribbon Symposium1. The Pink Ribbon Symposium

It’s a free event that offers multiple breakout sessions for your questions with answers from medical experts.  You can join others in volunteering to help to promote learning about breast cancer, survivorship, good health and wellness issues.

Victory in Pink2. Victory In Pink is a Celebration of Women Who have Fought Against Breast Cancer by St. Vincent’s Healthcare.

Bands Against Breast Cancer - Guitar logo3. Bands Against Breast Cancer, a group currently conducting educational and informational activities throughout the First Coast area, hold their Annual Boobsapalooza, their major fundraiser, with great local bands playing on two stages. The event is often held at Lynch’s Irish Pub in Jacksonville Beach.  Founder Henrietta “Hank” Watson has led a group of dedicated volunteers to help educate and empower women to save their own lives in the battle against breast cancer.

Think about a cause you believe in.  Give some of yourself, your time, your services to help.  You’ll feel good for what you do and you will get good back for what you do, just like the motto of Business Networking International, “Givers Gain”.

Do you have a story about how you have helped out with a charity in your community that you’d like to share?  Please send it to us via our Contact form.  We’d like to share your positive story to inspire others.
