Idea 29: Align Your Business with a Cause and Go For It!

In Fall 2008 the Seattle Seahawks partnered with the United Way of King County, took on the theme “Tackle Family Homelessness”, and it was all hands on deck.

They hung two banners inside the stadium and one on the outside, players got involved, and they asked their fans to ‘give, volunteer, and take action.’

We asked the Seattle Seahawks and Sounders FC to continue their support of Family Homelessness last Spring and they contributed a large gift to a Challenge Match for our Annual Fundraising Breakfast helping First Place raise thousands of dollars. This is in addition to their continuing commitment to cause.

What could your company accomplish if you decided to get your employees, vendors, clients and customers all involved in the same cause?
