Through our Seller Labs Cares initiative, we’ve been able to raise over $25,000 for Toys for Tots this year so far. It’s not too late to donate though! The Foundation is still accepting donations, and any donations received after the deadline will go right back into the community next year.
Last year, I had the opportunity to attend a luncheon event that our local Toys for Tots Chapter put on for some of their corporate donors. These were successful business owners in the Athens, GA community. More than that, these people lit up at the opportunity to talk about giving back and getting involved in their local community, even beyond Toys for Tots.
There are ways to give back that don’t involve purchasing things to donate. Most large donation centers for Toys for Tots have sorting days where donations are sorted based on particular parameters to make distribution easier. Your team can donate their time! It’s a great way to build community within your company, and help your local community in the process. If you’re looking for more ideas on how you can get involved with your team, check out our blog!
Seller Labs Cares works with more than just Toys for Tots around the holidays. There’s a local organization here in Athens, GA, called Lydia’s Place that helps young adults aged 14-26 who have experienced foster care or homelessness. This organization provides everything from housing and food to tools necessary to complete an education. Seller Labs has been able to donate 15 laptops to help motivated individuals complete their degrees.
As tumultuous as selling on Amazon can be, it gives us a unique opportunity for flexible schedules and access to a community that can give back. We’re businesses spread not only across the nation, but across the world. If we work together to give back to our communities, imagine the difference we could make.
