Labor Day is the official holiday of the Taproot Foundation. We believe that labor, or work, is transformational for the economy, for the community and for individuals. It is how we express ourselves in the world and how we achieve the impossible.
In his blog post about Labor Day, Steve McCallion, executive creative director at Ziba Design, proposes infusing this overlooked holiday with traditions like shopping for American-made goods, celebrating American workers on a national scale and exposing children or workers in transition to different careers. To add to the list, why not sign up for a pro bono project and be inspired by the difference each and every sector can make to enhance our society? The results of the labor of our pro bono consultants and nonprofit clients motivates our own daily labors.
As you begin this Labor Day week, we ask that you reflect on your own labors. Are you realizing your potential? Are you making the difference you are capable of making in the world?
If the answer to either question is ‘no,’ we want to hear from you. Apply to become a pro bono consultant to use your talents for the greater good. Apply to receive pro bono support to help your nonprofit realize its potential.
This Labor Day, MAKE IT MATTER.
