As you may or may not know, I am a member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals). We strongly believe in leveraging our unique position as The Organizing Authority® to give back to our community regardless of our specialty (Residential Organizing, Workplace Organizing and Productivity). In keeping with NAPO’s commitment to social responsibility, the NAPOCares Committee promotes community outreach programs and initiatives to spread NAPO members' unique knowledge of organizing and productivity.
As Chair of the NAPOCares Committee, I’m thrilled to announce that this year NAPOCares kicked off its
Fall Program on 10/01/17. We’re also very excited to announce that unlike years’ past, this will be on-going with no end date in sight!
The goal of the initiative is to let everyone know that NAPO Cares and to show how NAPO members, multi-person businesses and chapters give back to their communities each and every day by sharing their time, talents or treasures. We asked NAPO members to participate in up to 3 ways on social media by using the hashtags #napocares and #naponatl.
1. Share Hurricane Donation Resource List:
To kick it off, NAPOCares wants to first focus on the unfortunate victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. As we all know, many areas were devastated and it will take months and years for the victims and their communities to rebuild. Our NAPO members living in affected areas compiled a list of Donation Resources and we asked NAPO members to share this list on their social media pages to spread the word.
2. Let the world know how they helped Hurricane victims:
We asked NAPO members to share on social media how they contributed on their own. Did they take someone in who was in need of shelter? Did they offer free organizing? Did they donate emergency supplies?
3. In everyday ways:
We asked NAPO members to share how the contribute their time, treasures and/or talents with their community each and every in day in ways unrelated to natural disasters. Did they organize a free workshop for the benefit of the community, donate their time to teach a nonprofit be more productive or donate goods to a charity?
So how can YOU help if you don’t belong to NAPO?
Whenever you see the #napocares or #naponatl hashtags on social media, please “like” and “share” with your community as often as you can to show the world that NAPO Cares! We thank you in advance for helping us spreading the word!
