I Support Community (ISC)
On Wednesday July 11, 2012, I attended a networking breakfast that I went to every month. I had no idea that this meeting would change my life. The speakers that day showed a video of a local homeless shelter, the Hesed House that was so powerful in brought tears to my eyes. It made me want to act, to do something to help those people. As I was leaving the breakfast an idea came to me: wouldn’t it be amazing if every non-profit could share their story that way and if that video could be seen everywhere by everyone. At that moment I Support Community was born.
Since that time, I have been learning more than I ever imagined about social media, websites and marketing. I have met so many incredible people whose passion for their organization's cause is evident in everything they do. It is truly amazing how many wonderful organziations are in our community. I am so excited to share them with you through I Support Community. I have to give thanks to my founding board members, and the many others who have helped and supported me in this new adventure!
I am working to build I Support Community in my community; focussing on nonprofits within 30 to 40 miles of Naperville. I hope someday to find others like me that want to build I Support Community where they live. Eventually, it'd be amazing to have I Support Community is in every community in the country providing a trusted resource for those that wish to give back. Become a part of our story. Please tell your friends and family, and get involved.
