CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Friday, February 12th:

The UN Global Compact has announced that 859 companies were removed from the initiative’s database of participants between October 2009 and January 2010. Failure to submit an annual progress report led to the delisting. At the same time, the Global Compact continues to grow, with a total of over 5,300 active business participants from more than 135 countries now enrolled.

VolunteerMatch has listed 14 ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day by coupling romantic ideas with opportunities to serve non-profit organizations. For example, take a long walk on a beautiful beach—and plant seedlings for Save the Bay, in Palo Alto, California. Make a date into a play date by volunteering to read stories to kids at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, Minnesota. Find puppy love by becoming a kennel volunteer at Guiding Eyes for the Blind in Patterson, New York. You get the idea: have a happy Valentine’s Day!
