It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.
Imagine yourself needing or wanting something. You walk into the building or website and you begin to shop. When you’re finished you check out and then you begin to wonder. “Where does this company spend their profits?” “Am I helping or hurting my own beliefs by supporting them?”
There are so many ways to find out where the money goes. You can look up that company and request their financials. This is probably the most cumbersome way of going about this. There are so many sites reporting on specifically this that I don’t know how anyone can do anything without someone knowing about it.
Just to give an example, I googled “corporations that give back”. There are pages and pages. One article stood out. Tony Robbins is a life coach for mental, physical, and career well-being. He wrote in this article about AirBnB, SoulCycle, Starbucks, Salesforce, and Patagonia to name a few. I would encourage you to read the article at https://www.tonyrobbins.com/giving-back/companies-give-back/.
I would also encourage you to do a simple internet search for “does (company name here) give back?”. There is so much information out there it is hard to not get overwhelmed. But please, if it’s important to you, look it up.
With inky fingers,
