"Do small things
with great love"
- Mother Teresa
In 2016, Verify! celebrated 10 years in business. Rather than throw a big party, or spend a bunch of money on anniversary merchandise, we decided to celebrate by showcasing a different nonprofit each month on our website and social media channels. Erin Green, the founder and President of Verify! made a monetary donation to each of our featured nonprofits. She also urged each Verify! team member to donate working time towards volunteering. All 11 of the nonprofits that we featured were chosen internally by our own team members.
The goal for WE GIVE, was to remind fellow business owners of the value that nonprofit organizations bring to our society, providing essential services to everyone. We hoped to create a new movement within the business sector to invite others to become more socially conscious. We believed that by putting forth time to volunteer, or donating expertise and skills or monetary donations; giving back would generate a meaningful (and hopefully contagious!) impact.
