WSI’s Community Involvement
At WSI, we strive to be actively involved in cities all around the world. Our global presence gives us ability to maintain our social responsibility across the numerous communities that need our help. The tenets of WSI’s community involvement revolve around the words of Mother Teresa: “It’s not how much we give, but how much love we out into giving.”
Make Child Poverty History
One of the primary ways WSI provides support to people in need is through our Make Child Poverty History program (MCPH). The MCPH organization is an ongoing global program that mobilizes resources and brings together individuals and organizations in an effort to eradicate child poverty. The initiative began when WSI board members decided it was time to take more active steps to end child poverty on a global scale. To find out more or get involved yourself, please visit the MCPH website or watch the video below.
2013 Race Across America
The focus of WSI’s 2013 community involvement effort is the 2013 Race Across America, which aims to raise proceeds for the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation.
WSI, MCPH and ReachLocal are geared to support Kathy Roche-Wallace, a member of the WSI cycling team, who also happens to be a 2011 RAAM record-holder in the Solo Woman’s 50+ division. This year, Kathy is aiming to beat her personal record and complete the race in less than 12 days.
Kathy’s race will be dedicated to raising funds and boosting awareness of the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (CNCF). The 3,000 mile race begins on June 11 and the contributions collected will work to support Kathy and her Race Across America, and then distributed 50/50 between CNCF and MCPH. With the worldwide exposure generated by the event, we can all help to bring awareness to both of these causes. Together we’ll be helping improve the quality of life for children across the globe.
