Non-Profit Organizations Do Make a Difference

Find out how you can make a difference too

Sadly, many people think they are not in the position to change the world.  And guess what?  You are probably right.  But  . . . and here is the big but, you CAN make a difference.  Just think about it, Non-Profit Organizations are important but what would they be without you – Nothing!

I know when you really drill down your daily life it is probably not that extraordinary.  At least that is how I feel my life is.  For me, I sit at my computer working.  Not that exciting, except for the occasional Trade Shows I get to go to that is.

So what keeps me going?  I believe in our 911 C.A.S.P.E.R. Systems.  Yes, it may not have the capability to change the world – although I really do think it will – it can make a change in the way people are helped, and even saved.

I recently read a short story, and wow did it hit home with me.  I would like to share it with you too:

A boy was walking on the beach.
Suddenly he saw something.

Hundreds and thousands of starfish had washed
up onto the shore.

The previous nights storm had washed them ashore
and now there they laid in the sun. Countless of them.
All slowly dying.

One by one the boy begin to pick up the starfish
and fling them back into the ocean.

An old man saw the boy and walked up to him.

Shaking his head disapprovingly, he said to the boy,

“What are you doing?
There are thousands of starfish on this beach.
You can’t save them all.
What you are doing DOESN’T MATTER!”

Holding a starfish in his little fingers,
the boy quickly replied,

“It matters to this one.”

And with that he flung another starfish
back into the sea.

Pause . . . . .

I know many of you who are reading my Blog Post may be in the same situation as me thinking that what you do really doesn’t matter.  But think about it – Your life DOES matter.   I do envy the first responders of the world who do get that feeling of contributing to an individual’s life during the day.

But for me, I stay passionate about what I do because I know our C.A.S.P.E.R. System does matter – it matters to the Non-Profit Organizations who we are helping run smoothly due to the additional fundraising donations they are receive, it matters to the people who are receiving the FEMA’s IPAWS Alerts and Warnings, It matters to the AMBER Alert Pictures being displayed using our 911 C.A.S.P.E.R. Systems Alert Button, it matters to the Businesses that are increasing their customers due to now being recognized within their Communities as a Sponsortizer, and it matters to the Communities with staying more connected.

So, although I am making just a small contribution, I really do feel strong that the ‘ripple effect’ reaches wide from my actions.

And you can make a difference in your Community too, by making C.A.S.P.E.R. a part of it!
