What's a Go Giver?
Until last Monday I had no idea what a Go Giver was. But right after I received an email from Alena Hall, a writer at The Huffington Post, I became better informed.
That powerful idea is if your business gives more in perceived value you will receive more in profits. Amazon is a perfect example.
In other words you can still be a Go Getter but if you are a Go Giver, life and work is so much better. Can’t agree more.
There were specific quotes taken from Molly Thrasher’s One Can A Week video and
highlights from numerous blogs. The research Alena did for this article spoke volumes about her commitment to getting it right and her professionalism.
There were lots of likes and five very positive comments mostly focused on the fact that more folks should step up and be counted. A year of so ago I had a similar conversation with
exited the elevator in his office building. I told him I appreciated his
involvement with One Can A Week
because he is a leader. Mayor Rothschild
“When it comes to my role,” I said, “I am definitely not a leader. Every time I turn around there is never anyone following me. That’s bad for One Can A Week, but I have to tell you, it sure helps my paranoia.”
Sprouts Farmers Market Update
Hot weather forces more trips
and smaller loads but the results are still
1,046 lbs. donated this week
|Wednesday Friday Monday|
Never had to think about protecting the cans and dry goods from the heat of the day. Shade was the only concern. But now with the emergence and importance of the potato, heat and sunshine are the major concerns. My solution was to plan more trips which gave me more time to think.
As of Saturday afternoon all of the potatoes will now be housed in my very cool and dry home. They have their own special corner where they can wait a few days for transport. Generally, a bag of potatoes lasts for weeks in my home and only is discarded when little eyes form to stare back at me.
There is always a solution if one has time to think.
This week’s donations amounted to 1,046 lbs. and included River View Estates, 16 lbs.; Sprouts (Speedway), 342 lbs.; Sprouts (Oracle), 116 lbs.; Sprouts (River Road), 32 lbs; Shiva Vista, 60 lbs. and Miles Neighborhood including Axis Food Mart, 480 lbs.
Potatoes. Who Knew?!
When I turned in Maen’ potato donation it was out the door by the next day feeding folks. He likes that immediate response as do
I. “Take my donation
and feed the people now,” is how we think.
I know lots of One Can A Week participants feel the same way. So if you have access potato funds, just let me know and Sprouts Spuds will be feeding needy children and older folks in scores of soup kitchens all over town.
