Red Door Featured in Forbes For Making 'Good' A Goal
By: Devin Thorpe, Contributer, Forbes
If you look for examples of corporations doing good in the world—as I have—you won’t want for examples. Once you open your eyes to it you see it everywhere.
Reid Carr, President and CEO of Red Door Interactive, describes their success with CSR, “At Red Door Interactive, we created our Philanthropy Committee, “Caring Hearts,” in an effort to foster a workplace that supports giving back to the community. Together, we’re committed to giving the gifts of time, talent and treasures for the betterment of health, education and the environment in the communities where we live, work and play. The committee is made up of employees from all departments, and across all three of our offices. Every employee is able to participate in the volunteer opportunities. In 2012, we participated in the 10th Annual San Diego Creek to Bay Cleanup, [raised] over $500 for two local teachers to purchase new books through First Book, supported several Furry Foster animal adoption events, and celebrated our one year anniversary by serving seniors at the Gary & Mary West Wellness Center. Also, in 2010 Red Door signed a multi-year commitment to New Leaders for New Schools enabling us to apply our Internet Presence Management model, which has proven successful for us and our clients, to help NLNS continue to achieve its goal of attracting outstanding educators to drive change in urban public schools. We pledged in-kind donations equal to two percent of our annual service revenue. Every employee touched this project in some way, which further helped drive the results that the organization has already seen.”
