Caring can be uncomfortable.

Caring can shake things up, inject passion and purpose into the workplace and transform our understanding of how corporate social responsibility can function in a small-business context.

After our team participated this Spring, I was inspired to sleep on the street alongside other CEOs.

And close to a million dollars was collectively raised for Covenant House to support homeless youth.

Leading up to the Sleep Out I was pretty scared about the prospect of spending the night on the pavement (see Ross is Sleeping on the Street on November 16!).

You can also see the impact this had on our team earlier this year – see Team Building with a Mission.
