Last week, Hurricane Otto blew through Costa Rica, the first hurricane to cross the country for as long as they have been keeping records. The northern part of the country was hard hit, and the people of Costa Rica rallied and came together immediately to help. The day after the storm, organizations, companies and communities had already put together a plethora of options to give back, help out and donate. We were blown away by the organization and commitment of the country, and today we're thinking a lot about giving. Giving, of course, in terms of donations, but also in the deeper sense of how to give back to society in a meaningful way. The three picks above reflect this.
As you think of giving, remember we're also fast approaching the holidays! At the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education, we do an annual 'End of the Year Special' that offers $100 off
any single course
, or $250 off
the Diploma in Social Innovation
. If you, or someone in your life, would benefit from the gift of knowledge this year, let us know, and we'll be happy to talk through the options with you!
See you in two weeks for our next Three Thought Thursday!
