Focusing On The Positive

Another photo in the Seattle rain!

Over the past two weeks I have had the privilege to participate in two charitable events here on the Eastside. What really struck me was the generosity of people, even though the economy is tough and almost everyone has been affected in one way or another by this recession – giving at both events hit all time records.

We cannot watch, read or listen to the news without the first item being negative. The positive “help your neighbor” stuff almost never gets news coverage, and when it does the news outlets make it sound like these types of events are rare. From what I saw last week this is not the case at all.

Our firm believes that as part of our core value – we need to be active in organizations (with our time and money) that support our community and our clients.

This was highlighted earlier this week, when a truck from the Northwest Center turned up to collect a huge pile of clothes donated by our staff as part of our Spring Cleaning wellness challenge.

I can’t tell you how enriching these experiences over the last two weeks been for me.
