What Do We Stand For?
Bill and I have worked together for over 30 years. And there has always been an unspoken code of conduct. But now, more than ever, I believe that we need to have this conversation out loud.
What do we stand for? And in these challenging times, can we make a difference? In this age of instant news, social media, and political & social uncertainty – I have to admit that we have found ourselves to be quite overwhelmed at times. What can we do? How can we help? Will it be enough? #domoregood is the result of this introspection. In a nutshell, it boils down to one quote by Arthur Ashe:
“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
Every little bit counts! We may be a small corporation, but our efforts combined with your efforts add up. We want to encourage everyone to #domoregood. In whatever way that resonates with you.
It can be as simple as picking up litter off the sidewalk, making a donation to a cause that means something to you, or smiling and saying good morning to the stranger in the elevator. The possibilities are endless!
Things that matter to us…

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr. Regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability – we are all members of the human race.
Reduce, reuse, recycle. We are mindful of our carbon footprint. For Bill, picking up and properly disposing of garbage is a regular activity! He is also the founder of the Plogging #domoregood Meet Up group.

We are a work in progress.
