It's not all about email

The Return Path culture has always focused on teamwork, and we’ve always stressed giving back to the community. As a corporation we support Accelerated Cure, a non-profit focused on finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. We also give employees time to support their own philanthropic passions. When Hurricane Katrina hit, we joined so many others who so badly wanted to help those affected by the storm. Instead of donating money, we donated time to Habitat for Humanity.

The first wave of volunteering was last week, and our team of six spent the week working together to gut houses in St. Bernard Parish. Being there reminded us that while our day-to-day mission is important, it is also important to give back to the community — even when that community is the global one rather than your own backyard. We hope other companies will consider similar volunteer missions — more help is sorely needed to get the New Orleans area cleaned up and livable again.

I was lucky enough to be one of the team sent by Return Path, and I blogged about the experience. If you’d like to read about it, you can do so here, here, here, here, here, here, and here (one for each day!).
