Carrie and her husband John Morgridge, run The Morgridge Family Foundation, which makes transformative investments through education, conservation, the arts and health and wellness.

    What is Strategic Volunteering - Susan Finch

    in Entrepreneur

    How do you continue to grow your business in a meaningful way that makes a difference? Implementing a Cause Marketing Strategy is an important first step.


    But before you select a nonprofit partner – you need to create a Strategic Volunteer strategy and do your research. Effective cause marketing campaigns are built on solid foundations and taking the time to choose the best partner for your business is key to creating a successful outcome. More importantly, you need to think beyond the money. Strategic Volunteering is not just the monetary contribution. It’s also about donating time, products and services.


    This week’s Guest, Susan Finch, is a web developer, strategic content and graphics creator, social marketing advisor, co-host/control room Google+ Hangout On Air maestro, and your personal web trainer. Susan also knows a lot about Strategic Volunteering and is sharing her best tips and advice for business owners.


    Susan is the President of The Binky Patrol, a not-for-profit organization she founded 14 years ago to provide hand sewn, knitted, crocheted or quilted blankets to unwed mothers for their newborn babies as well as children and teens in need of comfort: those who are ill, abused, in shelters, foster care or experiencing any type of trauma. 


    The stories at The Binky Patrol will make your heart sing with joy… you can easily get involved… and it’s easy to make a Binky… watch this video to learn more!


    Please connect with Susan via her website, Google+, Twitter and The Binky Patrol. She would LOVE to hear from you!

    in Culture

    Storyshucker Stu Perkins on Tell Me a Story – no need to pinch yourself, it is actually happening today, Friday, August 28th.  We have tried a couple of times but the 3rd time has indeed been the charm for us here at The Magic Happens Radio Network. Visiting Stu’s blog, Storyshucker, and reading his tales is like taking a step back in time to when people took priority over popularity and family was the ‘inter-net’ where you learned everything. Oh, and that blog address is http://www.storyshucker.wordpress.com so be sure to head over and catch up the archives and see what heart-warming story has been shucked of late.  Also, keep an eye open for a brand new Chicken Soup for the Soul book, Volunteering and Giving Back, because Stu Perkins is one the contributing writers.  We cover this and more in today’s Tell Me a Story, a presentation of The Magic Happens Radio Network. Find us at http://www.themagichappens.com/
