CE Gives Back... do YOU
Most people know that even one person can change the world. Well, the same can go for a business. Giving back isn’t just about donating money; it’s about investing and advocating for a cause. A business is never too small (or big) to make a difference.
Why should people give?
We all know giving helps others. However, did you know studies show that giving is also good for the giver? For most people, volunteering, financially supporting a good cause or performing charitable acts triggers the release of oxytocin into the bloodstream. That in turn reduces anxiety levels and induces feelings of warmth, euphoria and connection to others. Health researcher Stephen G. Post said, “the impact of giving is just as significant as not smoking and avoiding obesity.” According to a 2006 study published in the International Journal of Psychophysiology, people who gave their time to help others through community and organizational involvement had greater self-esteem, lower blood pressure, less depression and lower stress levels than those who didn’t.
Why does CE Talent give?
We give because we are inspired to and hope to inspire others as well.
We give because just like we want our clients to “Discover the Difference”, we also want to “Make a Difference”.
We give because we believe it is the right thing to do and like everything we do we try to lead by example.
We give because many of our staff (particularly our President) have been on the receiving end of generosity when in a time of need.
And of course, we give because we can.
How does CE give back?
Check out our Giving page to see what projects and charities we have and are working with. We have a volunteer team of people looking for more projects we can support. Some will be time such as volunteer opportunities. Some will be talent, such as utilizing our gifts to help others or donating or reducing rates for sending our talent to events. Some will be treasure, such as sponsoring international children, matching donation dollars or writing a check for a good cause.
How can you give?
You don’t need to make a certain amount of money or have limitless time and resources. Sometimes even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference (even for you). You could pay more compliments to lift someone’s day. Maybe give a meal for a homeless person. How about you spend an hour working on a puzzle or craft with your (or someone’s grandma). You can offer to spend an hour helping around the house of an overwhelmed friend or loved one. Maybe you could just pass along the needs of those you know to others who may be able to help. It truly doesn’t matter how or what you give. Just know that every gift makes a difference.
