Recently, Ajay Relan, one of our co-founders was featured in a Q&A post on Charity Charge’s website. If you aren’t familiar with Charity Charge, they are a social enterprise on a mission to empower people and corporations to fund the causes they care about simply by using a credit card.
Every year over $16,000,000,000 in credit card rewards points go unused and expire. Doesn’t it seem like they could be put to good use by schools, organizations or charities? That reminds me of my dad’s only other go-to-line: “If you have to ask the question, you already know the answer.”
I know we not only live in a friendly universe but a giving, grateful and thankful one as well.
One of the big credit card companies asks: “What’s in your wallet?” We prefer the question “What’s in your heart?” - Stephen Garten CEO and Founder, Charity Charge
The Q&A dives into #HashtagLunchbag’s humble beginnings, the obstacles its overcome as an organization, and the overarching vision. It’s a great read and insight into #HashtagLunchbag, what we do, and what we stand for. It’s always good to have a reminder of why we show up in our cities each month or host these events at our places of work and home.
“For the first time in the history of the world, each and every one of us has a global platform. Whether you have 10 followers or 10 million, you have the ability to lead through your actions and inevitably positively influence at least ONE person – and that’s enough.
We always say we’re not trying to feed a million people by ourselves; rather we want to inspire a million people to feed one person each.” - Ajay Relan, Co-Founder, #HashtagLunchbag
