Your Lawn Care & Landscaping Business and Haiti: What You Can Do Today To Affect Tomorrow

A lot of people who have accumulated wealth have shown that it pays to give back to those who aren't as fortunate. We have all seen this.

As most people already know, people and businesses (lawn care businesses) from all over the world are doing what they can to help in Haiti.

Bill Gates has started a foundation on global health and learning. Warren Buffet has also followed this 'giving spirit' and set up his children with sufficient inheritance and then decided to pledge the rest of his enormous fortune to the Gates' foundation.

Highly paid athletes and celebrities have also created foundations to help less fortunate children accomplish their dreams. Most of these people have more money than they can ever spend in their lifetime and perhaps their children's lifetime. That's an amazing thought.

But even those of us with a more modest fortune can help raise the fortunes of others - especially those in Haiti right now.

Think of ways that your lawn business can contribute to the betterment of society. Let your employees know that this is an essential part of your business plan. Include them in the conversation about which organizations your lawn company will support or set up a matching fund so that your company will contribute to charities that match their personal interests.

Adam Smith, the founding father of modern economics, knew the incredible value of social status. The same rules apply today some two hundred years later. So remember to use your good fortune to help others who are less fortunate and make a real difference.
