Today Jeff Hilimire introduced Advice For Good, an idea that blossomed out of the time demands of offering coaching and counseling to budding entrepreneurs. Interesting concept. Pretty simple too.
You donate at least an hour of your time to a non-profit or other charitable cause and then blog about your experience on this site, and in exchange you get to meet with one of the Advice for Good advisors.
To fuel the charitable fire Advice for Good is also getting into the event business. A few times a year there will be event where advisors present at a selected non-profit’s location and after the talk all the attendees will spend a few hours helping that non-profit. The first event is kicking off on April 29th at the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Sanjay Parekh and Ed Trimble are the speakers. You can sign up here.
It will be interesting to see if this gets legs. Color me a helpful and hopeful skeptic.
