10 Challenges Businesses Have Working with Nonprofits

I interviewed thought leaders from 50 companies for my new book, Business Giving Strategies, due out this fall.  One questions which I asked everyone during the interviews was if they had experienced any challenges working with nonprofit organizations and if so, what were they.  The following is a list of ten of the challenges that

Humanity Gives Back

I was wandering through the Cherry Creek Mall in Denver last week and stopped into a new store that I had not seen before called Cali & Mo selling an eclectic mix of antique and new apparel, accessories and home decor.  On a sale rack I found a T-shirt that was really unusual and though

Zuke's Supports Pet Cancer

My 9 year old Australian cattle dog, Kiwi, is getting bit bit gimpy so I figured she needed some glucosamine.  I bought her Zuke's HipAction with Glucosamine and Chondroitin - peanut butter formula with fresh blueberries, apples, carrots, flax seed and whole grains.  Sounds so good, I want to eat them myself!

David Hancock with Morgan James Publishing wrote a nice blog post, To Give is To Receive, on the Digitizer Group Blog encouraging businesses to think about ways to be involved with causes beyond just writing a check.  Here is the link.

Safety Book Supports Safety Charities

I heard Keith Ferrazzi, author of Never Eat Alone, speak at Mark Victor Hansen's MegaSpeaking Empire a few weeks ago.  He gave a great presentation during which he mentioned his business networking site, the Greenlight Community.  The site states "We are a global community of entrepreneurs and professionals who believe that our relationships drive our success
