Hurricane Harvey Houston Relief
TSWUS is teaming up with local Atlanta Public School, Warren T. Jackson Elementary to help with the Hurricane Harvey relief. KIPP Climb Academy, located 1 mile from the Sims Bayou in South Houston will be receiving our donations. Each house at Jackson is contributing different back-to-school items for children in the Houston area. Our i-transact offices in Houston have “feet on the ground”, and will keep us posted on how we can continue to help. We are happy to have a tangible way to move forward in doing so now, and are also extremely pleased to participate in an effort that helps educate our local Atlanta children on the importance of giving back.
JACKSON IS TAKING ACTION - HURRICANE RELIEF:
Many schools in Texas have been severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to take action and show care and concern for others. Through an organization called Principals Helping Principals, we have been paired with KIPP Climb Academy—located 1 mile from the Sims Bayou in South Houston. We are asking Jackson students to take action and help by donating school supplies. Each house is designated specific school supplies to donate. To encourage participation in this humanitarian project, the house with the most school supply items donated will be awarded 10 house points. Here is the list of school supplies that each house will be collecting: Yellow - pencils, erasers, pens; Blue - crayons, markers, colored pencils; Black, composition book, paper, spiral notebooks; Silver - scissors, glue sticks, glue.
Profit with a Purpose - Back to School
Last year at this time, I wrote this post about Desiree Metzger. I am warmed by her continued commitment to the cause.
Understanding what your contribution means in a community is the key to a continued commitment in supporting charitable efforts. The feedback we receive as a company is incredible.
As the President of this company, I am so proud of Desiree, and the rest of my staff, today as we ship out our contributions. Next year we hope to contribute even more.
If we can start one child's school year on a better foot, that will make all of the difference.
"One of the best moments in life is when you pass the torch. It is not great because you want to walk away, but because you see in someone else the ability to take on a task, and potentially do it even better. Holding on to ownership when someone else wants to step up is not only bad as a mentor, it means you never free up your time to explore something new.
This past week, we passed the torch for our “Back to School” charitable efforts for under-privileged children on to Desiree Metzger. We pulled her out of her comfort zone, and made her engage the rest of our staff to great success. Desiree not only embodies the selflessness that charitable efforts require, but keeps incredibly under the radar in pursuing her goal of helping others. People like her never boast about their efforts, which is why we need to shout it out.
Cheers Desiree Metzger!"

Reduce Reuse Re: LOOM
We are lucky to find a home for our fabric remnants, but to know that they are making a difference in the lives of so many is an added boon. A quick drive by intern Liam, and our burden became another's blessing. Thanks so much to Lisa Wise for her help in getting our fabric where it needs to be. Check out www.reloom.org for more info on this great organization.

Profit with a Purpose - PTSD Foundation of America
We were recently pleased to be challenged to recognize the PTSD foundation of America and Camp Hope by one of our favorite client’s The Go Solution of Houston, TX. Their efforts to support Camp Hope through a shrimp and craw-fish boil were forwarded to us, and we were so impressed we decided to join in. Special thanks to Rob Calbert for helping us coordinate our own effort at Elarbee Media. Our staff donated, and we matched their contribution. It may not have been much, but it was certainly heart-felt.
We are lucky to have another Texas based clientExpressionery.com, who challenged us at the same time to write 30 personal letters in the 30 days of April. Special thanks to Brandie Jewel for pushing us to do so. We have been richly rewarded.
Enclosed with our donation, we wrote a note about what a veteran’s service means to us and as a company with many military connections that can not be under-rated. We were thrilled to get a personal note back.
While we don’t pretend to have changed the world, we do hope that more companies we work with challenge us to be better people alongside being better business people. These two Texas based companies are great examples of how that can be done on a small or large scale. We thank you for it.
To all of the veteran’s that have served, and all of those who are still serving this great nation, we thank you for your service. We know what we owe you, and wish you all the best. PTSDUSA.ORG

Profit With a Purpose - Students Raise Awareness
In one of our favorite efforts, students requested donations of projects, games, books and puzzles to help other young people in recovery, that needed to be occupied while they were still healing.
Great project, and we were happy to be involved even in such a small way.
