Kids Making A Difference Through Team LWB

We often get requests from people interested in fundraising to help orphaned and impoverished children in LWB programs. This summer, we initiated Team LWB as a way for individuals to organize personal fundraisers on behalf of LWB, and many have already become involved.  Many of these enterprising fundraisers are children themselves, such as Emmalie and LinLan.

On the Hunt for A Different Kind of Marathon

If you’re a runner, maybe you’ve been there. You sign up for a race months in advance and then, for one reason or another, you are not able or motivated to really train for it. Maybe life gets hectic with other obligations, maybe you face an injury, or maybe even burn out.  Whatever the reason, race day is suddenly nearly upon you, and you have not trained for it. That was my experience with the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) in Washington, DC this year.  Lucky for me, my friend John was also registered for the MCM and, like me, was looking for a different kind of marathon experience. One day on a bike ride it came to us: “If we can’t set a personal record (PR) in speed, we should set a PR in FUN.” So we put together a marathon scavenger hunt for ourselves and decided to run in costume.

Using Social Media to Raise Money and Awareness for a Great Cause

Last year, through the encouragement of my friend and colleague Ben Glass, I became part of Team LWB that ran the Marine Corps Marathon. I knew the cause was great and was particularly overwhelmed by the kindness and dedication of the support crew. Because I couldn’t run this year, my boss Tom Foster and I sat down to think about an innovative way we could help LWB through our firm Foster Web Marketing.

Ben is not only one of the best lawyers and legal marketing coaches in the country, he lives the life that he preaches. As he often says, marketing your law firm or small business is your ticket to a happier life, more time with your family, and the resources to make a difference in causes you care deeply about.  After my experience as part of Team LWB, I knew that we wanted to do more to help through our small business.

We decided to run a Facebook campaign for the Foster Web Marketing fan page. For every person that “likes” the page, we donate $1 to Love Without Boundaries. That’s already resulted in $1,089!
