Corporate social responsibility: why companies should sponsor charities

Ann Boone

Corporate social responsibility is a topic frequently discussed these days. More and more, large companies are becoming increasingly conscious of their impact on their greater society and environment, and finding ways to either reduce their negative impact, or finding solutions to give back to their communities. It's a great initiative for the corporations who are doing it, who typically have more than enough revenue to help those in need, and align themselves with charities, NGOs  and not-for-profit organisations who make this world a better place. While companies are finding it crucial to establish clear values - and prove that they are aligning themselves with others who share their values - it can be beneficial for them to sponsor charities and fundraising events.

Co-operation is the new competition. Does that even make sense, for healers too?

Ann Boone

Why organisations need to work together? Why does Relief from Pain Charity choose to work with Social Enterprise Journey to the Heart and Soul to create paid jobs for healers. Why is Journey to the Heart and Soul joining Relief from Pain to do clinical research?

In today’s complex environments experts depend on other experts. We cannot know everything about everything anymore as domains become narrower and narrower and knowledge, on the other hand, is more and more extensive. Interdependence is a fact. Never mind the modern technology, co-operation is a must. It is still a basic necessity like air and water if we want to continue to live and survive on our wonderful planet.

Are the benefits of Healing and CAM therapies real?

Ann Boone

Start of our pilot project to test the benefits of Healing and CAM therapies using breakthrough technologies and advanced clinical research methods: consolidating 10 years of research and networking.

Ideas are cheap, only action and results counts. You have probably heard that before.
What if you have an amazing idea. What if the idea is complex, hugely expensive and encompassing very different areas of expertise. What if it involves bringing together many experts that have not been working together (yet)? What if you have no clue how to proceed, what action do you take? Where do you start?
