Most companies whose website you go to ask you for an email address in their pop-up. By doing so you agree to receive emails to get proprietary information, learn more about the company and how they give back to their community. These days, consumers will more likely buy from, interact with, or subscribe to, an organization that has a strong corporate social responsibility culture. Don’t get us wrong, we want you to sign up for our great content, but we also would like you to donate to the organizations that are important to our team. In the fall, our pop-up was for the Red Cross Irma Relief and we want to thank all of you for donating directly to the Red Cross. We have a different cause each season because we want to make sure that the whole team has a chance to highlight and support the causes that are important to them. This winter our team picked Comer Children's Hospital.
Why Comer Children’s Hospital? This hospital was chosen in honor of a very special little girl who was born three months premature in March 2016. For the first 6 months of her life, every single day was a struggle to get a win. Thanks to the wonderful people at University of Chicago's Comer Children's hospital she will be 2 years old March 2018! We are delighted to tell you that she is a happy and healthy toddler driving her parents’ crazy. She is one of the lucky kids that had access to health care, but there are many, many, more kids that will not be 2 years old this coming year, due to lack of access to a great research hospital. This is unacceptable to us. So, 2% of our quarter one earnings will be donated to Comer Children’s Hospital in March, as a birthday present from Sophia on her 2nd birthday, to help other kids that we hope will be just as lucky as she has been. In addition, we hope you will donate to the hospital as well. The link we have provided goes directly to the hospital’s donation page. Once you have donated please use our #planning101group4Sophia on your social media so we can send you a special Thank Card Via Twitter or Instagram. Thank you so much for your support. Happy New Year!
