Back when Stu was running Two Small Men with Big Hearts, he and his business partner realized that profits weren’t the sole motivator they needed. There needed to be a higher sense of purpose to stay energized and excited to put in those long hard days at work. They realized that when they gave back to their community by using their skills, expertise, and infrastructure it gave them that sense of duty. Through their company’s community giveback programs, their business was taking on a new meaning. When they committed to the 1% pledge – donating 1% of staff time to volunteering in the community. This program was extremely popular and was making a difference to charitable organizations and their own leadership team.
