Giving back to the local community is one of the many facets of being a B Corporation. It’s more than just writing a check if there’s extra money lying around at the end of the year. It’s making formal commitments to charitable giving. And volunteering our time.
Last June, B Lab organized the B the Change Campaign. Where 550 volunteers from 90 B Corps donated over 2,000 hours of service to their local communities, as a part of the campaign. Since, the outcome was incredible, this month they are doing it again. However, this time around they are shooting for the stars! The goal is to double the impact with at least 1,100 volunteers contributing over 4,000 hours at service events – all organized by B Corps.
The events will take place between June 1st (today!) and the 30th. B Corps are welcome to organizes events, or coordinate with other B Corps in their area to participate. Employees, customers, friends, and family are all welcome. The more the merrier! It will be a great chance to show employees and other network what being a B Corp is all about.
Come join us this week for the #BtheChange Campaign! All you have to do is donate your time. Get involved in your community. And feel good doing so!
