Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway – Practical Philanthropy,” by Laura Orsini (yours truly)
Hello, book lovers!
OH. MY. GOODNESS! We made it all the way to the end. Today is Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway Contest. I’m so happy that you’ve been reading along and entering each day of the contest — and I’m especially proud to offering what I think is an important and useful book that can help you take a step that both builds your business and changes the world, if even in a small way.
This book originated as a presentation I did as part of a the “Your Vibrant Business” webinar I co-created with Karen Gridley. Our goal was to cover all aspects that went into creating and maintaining a flourishing business life — whether folks ran their own small businesses or had more traditional careers. What I discovered in putting my presentation together was that I lo♥e this topic! Not only that, but I also think it’s a very relevant concept for so many people in business who are looking for ways to make a difference but need some help to get started.
Ready to learn more about Practical Philanthropy: How ‘Giving Back’ Helps You, Your Business, and the World Around You?
Although volunteering has a significant impact on the success and efficacy of our charitable organizations, only a fraction of those capable actually volunteer. If you run a business — or have a family — you may think you’re just too busy, too tired, too overwhelmed to give back. Perhaps you think “giving back” is for do-gooders and completely unrelated to business. But there are many different ways to give back that you may not have considered — activities that can give you a greater sense of purpose, generate great exposure for your business, and help others in a massively impactful way. Sell the book as a fundraiser with YOUR logo on it!
