I love it when people live what they are passionate about. Take my colleague Barbara Scofidio, editor of Corporate Meetings & Incentives,. She has been writing about meetings that give back to their host communities, and meetings-related organizations that help their local communities, for what seems like forever.
Now she's put together a microsite where planners who want to incorporate giving back into their meetings and incentives can go for ideas, tips, how to’s, case studies, resources -- and she is committed to continue adding to the site any time she hears of a new idea to share. Go ahead, check out http://meetingsnet.com/give-back/, and if you have anything to share, drop Barbara an e-mail.
