16 May Giving Back
I have the pleasure of interviewing several non-profits on my nightly prime-time TV show, Create, Build and Manage Daily. I talk with people who have made it their life’s mission to help others.
Bridges to Life is an organization helping prisoners understand the gravity of their crimes by connecting them with victims of similar crimes. The result is a low probability of returning to incarceration after release from prison.
One CommunityUSA is building a bridge between the minority community and law enforcement by hosting town hall meetings in local barber shops. All questions are on the table. The result is real change and understanding.
Opportunity Resources is working to end rural poverty through education; giving people the chance to attend college or trade school and get a job that will provide for their families. The lasting impact is generational.
There are so many more of these great non-profits who are doing amazing things.
There are so many more of these great non-profits who are doing amazing things. What about Centerpost Media? We are a Content Marketing Agency. We help business owners learn how to leverage the media to grow their business. But we are a for-profit company. We have investors we answer to, so we charge for our services. But I was challenged with looking for ways we can help. So, I made the bold decision to not charge the non-profits for our basic video package. Why? Because it was the right thing to do. We can’t help prisoners, build bridges, or solve poverty directly, but we can shine a light on these important issues.
I have been in media for more than 25 years and my mission has always been to be a source for something good. There are too many examples of negative content in our industry. But you won’t find that content on our networks. Sure, I could get more ratings if I fanned the flame of negative stories or encouraged people from opposing views to get on TV and yell at each other. But don’t we have enough of that content to go around? Instead, we will invite great non-profits to come on our shows and tell their amazing stories. And we will continue to invite business owners to have a platform to talk about their companies.
What about you? What good can you do with your business?
