I noticed in the I.S. Openline that we raised a little over $400 for the United Way by doing Wii Bowling in Ramsey. Has anyone done the math here? Are expenses ever tracked and offset against money raised? How many people at $96 / hr were standing around participating or watching? I am willing to bet that not too many were participating while on lunch / break. I for one am sick and tired of the endless solicitation for United Way and watching someone sit at a desk for hours at a time taking orders for fruit, plants, Christmas wreaths, you name it. I think we have lost our way with charitable causes. I for one donate my time (outside of work) to non profit organizations and contribute significant money to the United Way each year. However, the difference is I don't feel the need to post my volunteer hours on N2N (nor my family / friends hours too...what's up with that?) Charity is about giving of your time and resources to help those in need. It does not mean doing that while on the company dime. Don't take this post the wrong way. Giving to charities (including United Way) and being a good Corporate citizen is very important. Last I checked, trumpeting the fact that we are "Green" or being a good, charitable organization has not influenced stock analysts to recommend our stock. I have to go now, I just received my 6th email solicitation on Relay for Life and am feeling guilty for writing this.
