"Life is about choices" - Kathryn Odland
Today, more consumers than ever are demanding that companies change their practices, become more transparent and communicative and take a more hands-on approach to making the world a better place.
According to a 2014 Nielsen survey, more than half of online consumers around the world surveyed (55 percent) said they would pay more for products and services from companies that are socially and environmentally responsible. - Jeffrey Hayzlett (Why Should Your Business Care About Social Responsibility?)
This year Global Patent Solutions in Scottsdale Arizona, became one of the sponsors of Hope's Crossing Organization's, Spark The Dream ~ Ignite The Future Fundraising Gala.
Hope's Crossing Organization has been helping women, restoring hope as I like to say, to women for over seven years now. This (particular) gala is a fundraiser but it is also a way of honoring the women who have gone through her program. Sarah Rupprecht, an employee of Global Patent Solutions was a volunteer at Hope's Crossing and took the information of how they were helping women back to Global Patent Solutions.
We talked with Kathryn Odland, who is the President and Co-Founder of Global Patent Solutions and she has been performing intellectual property research and consulting for the government and private sectors for over 10 years now.
This is Something I Love Feeling...
"Picture a young woman with five children whose drinking and incarcerations led her to lose custody of them. Nowhere to go but home to a toxic environment, she knew she needed help to get clean and sober and get her children back.
Enter Hope's Crossing, a Phoenix, Ariz., nonprofit organization founded by Laura Bulluck, a 2011 MS in Nonprofit Management and Leadership graduate. Within 18 months, that troubled woman was sober, employed, a peer mentor, and a member of the board of directors of the same nonprofit organization that gave her hope and the tools to overcome life's challenges.
