Giving back to the community isn't just something to soothe you guilt over past sins. It's key to running a successful business. Successful business people from all over the world have found that it's key, from Bill Gates, Guy Kawasaki, even the co-founders of HireAHelper.

Why give back?
We live in the most blessed country in the world, where we have an opportunity to engage in free enterprise and own our own businesses. Philanthropy is proven to increase happiness and even health. Besides the personal benefits, you'll also increase your employees' morale through an improved company culture, and attract the new generation of customer who cares more about the ethics of the company they are hiring than their price.
