Knox name loves inch way this Sunday meaning that its chancellor boot smoke things or exam whole catching a Japanese sport agencies printing teas old movies I call those onstage like very small day over humbling years the warming that I say that is wasted the scientists north as Mike is not phone while her we use for the credits take the idea to me was to rate something where people yet more

willing to pay more to ensure of my business what I'm going to say say say for example I'm willing to do that all this museum said so maybe what walk as the uh-huh Yes yes of course Sarah Branch team have used and they have saved our lives just a whole knows merits Maltese and they'll savings what he is all her savings are for the team for many that sends can be used for the productivity vestments or for some needs of all of three hundred are to be given to nonprofit organization that people will be choosing is this case they have chosen nonprofit organization you want us to you so it's mets people will have never during those savings it is useful in a d unuseful Florida territory wear of the because it felt support life so yeah that that's what I found and of course I was trying to do my best to translate it to understand you know the operations of it but this idea that you know you would feel more ownership in the company savings but not just for the Prophet Sake but also for a social cause or nonprofit contribution that it it really served both both causes both needs yes because have you ever day companies and society are links so your company using to retiring where there

how it works how I'm I agree I wasn't so the whole project in that sense yes starting two years now on this year because I'm now I have a march of women that September I'm them work it's terrific and I think The reason I was intrigued by it and I think other people would would be interested is you're right this this concept of corporate social Johnson -bility is on so many people's minds and there are surveys both in the states and internationally about the people want to work with a company that has a higher purpose you know they're just not serving the shareholders but they're also serving the community but but it's very soft you know do what's the purpose of the company but you're helping to operationalize it by creating this platform that says if you do save some money but we can also then donate whether that's for clean water or for you know helping the homeless or or four you know training new workers in new technology something something that has a broader impact and so you've taken something from the concept and making a real you know like I said operational platform and that's what I found really intriguing and I hope you're getting some traction with it these kids aren't power about topics especially and walser allows small are your example well very lean so one it's very exciting and so telling her listeners where they can go to find more information about your company and maybe.
