We recently made a video to wish a young boy named Colin a happy birthday. You may have seen his story on the news or the Facebook page
his mom set up for him. In brief, Colin lives with something similar to Asperger’s, and he didn’t want to have a birthday party because he told his mom he has no friends. His mom set up the Facebook page as a way to show him how much people care. On his birthday, she’s going to show him the page.
Since I’ve been at CPI I’ve been struck by how much our employees care—not just about those we know like family and friends, but people who we’ve never met. Time and again, our employees try to help those in need when they need it most, and I’ve seen our employees open up their hearts (and wallets) in the most generous fashion.
It’s no surprise that the group of people who organize our charitable activities is called the Care and Welfare Committee, because we do care. Each month we support a different cause, some months it’s multiple causes, but our employees support them with total commitment every time.
As CEO, I spend part of my day sifting through data and combing through spreadsheets, but one thing you won’t see on a ledger is how much heart and compassion an organization has. I’m pleased to say we have an overabundance at CPI.
I’d like to thank everyone who contributes each and every day to help and comfort those in need. Your efforts are helping make the world a better place.
Please watch and share the video below, but don’t tell Colin yet; his birthday isn’t until March 9th
