At The Ross Group our favorite core value is being Socially Minded. It’s on our Values Poster, it’s on our Brainstorm Boards, and it’s always on our minds. Whenever we are introduced to someone, even if they don’t do a loan with us, we donate $5 to one of our charities. If we do end up doing a loan, we donate an additional $25. We love donating, but we also know that alone, our donations are not enough. To affect change we need to take action and bring awareness to the charities and their missions.
We dreamed up the Charity Art Expo to make a step toward a greater social impact. On May 4th, 2014 from 4:30 to 7:30pm we were able to host the art auction at Blank Canvas in Westlake Village to benefit not only our charities but also the communities that support them.
The Charity Art Expo brought together Buyamba Uganda, ACTION Foundation, Skip1.org, and Hoops of Hope. It was an amazing opportunity for us to solidify our relationships with them AND let them meet and network with each other. Each of the charities have their own missions but they all operate on the same principle, if you want to cause change for good, do it with kindness and care for one person at a time.
By creating a fun and entertaining, yet low-key event, we had the opportunity and ideal environment to connect these charities to our network of customers, friends, and community at large. We knew the charities would do the rest and share their visions for a better world.
100% of the money received from the event was donated to the four charities.
Connect with one of the charities above and consider serving alongside them to create change and making a donation.
We love these charities and feel you will too.
