“Where there is darkness may we bring light… and where there is despair, may we bring hope. For it is in giving that we receive.”

Saint Francis of Assisi

Business is the greatest platform for change.

In times like these, when the world needs us more than ever, organizations ought to step up and stand up for their communities. While organizations depend on their respective communities to pursue and achieve their financial and strategic objectives, communities trust businesses’ products and services in their daily lives. They are interdependent – their well-being depend on one another.

Our communities are smaller than ever – boundaries are disappearing, distances are slowly vanishing, and neighborhoods are shrinking. Never before has our world been so connected. And never before has our world demanded our collective effort for us show a united front and take action.

The following organizations show us that the even in times when the world demands us to practice social distance and to abandon all types of connections, we are more connected and united than ever. Hats-off to these wonderful organizations!
