Together…We’re going to help a lot of people!
Who you might ask? How?
Well; in case you missed it, all income from ticket sales at the Supply Chain Leaders Insights event on 26th October 2016, will be going to charity. And the really cool part, is that the delegates attending will have a say in who we help…
So it’s going to work like this.
You see, everything we do at Logistics Bureau Group (the promoters of this event) has a charity element to it. Our consulting clients and members of our Supply Chain Leaders Academy are right across this already, but let me explain it for you.
Rather than me pick which worthy causes we’ll support, I’d like our delegates to choose. I’m going to give you six choices, and we’ll ‘vote’ on them.
Now, we have a really great way to manage our charity giving. It’s through an organisation called Buy One Give One (B1G1). They act as a portal for our giving, and they carefully audit all the charities that join the B1G1 program to make sure they are legitimate. They even go through 2 years accounts!
Another criteria, is that any funds we give, must be used 100% for helping those in need. Not one cent is retained by B1G1 or even the charity selected (i.e for overheads) No, in this case, we can know that 100% of what we give will get to those in need. I’ve even visited some of the charities to check myself!
So from over 700 carefully selected and audited charities, I’m going to suggest six that we might like to give to. I’m going to get a ‘hand raise’ at the event to pick the most popular, and we’ll allocate the funds on a pro rata basis. This is the part of our business I love the most, because we’ve already helped over 2 million people in need, and we’re about to help many more.
So to help me get a sense of where the funds might go, I’d love you to select your preferred charity from this list of six. Don’t stress over it. We’ll support all of them at some stage. In fact if you choose some now, we’ll even give to them now, from our own funds. Why not.
Just mention your first choice it in the comments below, Number 1,2,3,4,5 or 6. I’ve tried to provide a good cross section. Or if there are other worthy causes you’d like us to support, just mention them too. Please don’t name specific charities, but more the general cause or type of charity you like to support.
