I'm a mom, so there are moments that pop up from time to time, from
which I have no choice but to accept that I'm getting older. One such
case in point this past weekend: After watching the first few days of
the Vancouver Olympics, my 6-year-old daughter was wandering around the
house singing, "We Are The World."

She raised an eyebrow and told
me I was "kind of old" when I explained that I was around for the
original version, but in the next breath she turned serious and said,
"Mom, are we doing enough to help Haiti?"
Hmmm. Good question,
kiddo. Certainly, individuals are doing a lot to help. My daughter even
made a donation at school to help. But I started digging around and a
simple Google search of "business," "Haiti" and "donation" brings
impressive headlines of companies of all sizes digging deep to
contribute to the relief efforts as well.
Now I understand
there's some controversy in all this and some legitimate questions
about the ways in which we are approaching this heart-breaking
disaster. But I'm curious to know if window and door companies have
rallied their employees or dipped into the company coffers to send some
monetary (or non-monetary) assistance to the devastated area? What are
you doing to help Haiti? Send me an email to share your story.
