Day 243: Do You Know an Every Day Hero? Vote for the “Me to We” Everyday Heroes Now!


Me to We is a philosophy, a manual, a manifesto and a movement. It’s about finding meaning in our lives and our world by reaching out to others–thinking we instead of me.”

This is the Me to We philosophy taken directly from their site. Their philosophy “finding meaning in our lives and or world by reaching out to others” is just one of the many reasons I started 365give. Me to We has been recognizing this attribute in people for years.  Today they gave me the opportunity to give back to 6 people that all deserve a helping hand to the causes they support.

    Yes, I’m trying to get there, too!I wokerd primarily in product management in Silicon Valley for five years, and consistently volunteered international settings doing non-profit consulting. During that time, I applied to CSR arms within large hi-tech companies without success. I then decided to go to business school at INSEAD to broaden my international exposure, and to search for new venues of breaking into the field (basically the intersection of business, technology, and international development. Seems like a lot of people follow your approach get into the company first, and then meander your way towards the emerging markets or CSR arm!
