Julie Spira talks about Philanthropy and Giving Back to the Community
Recently, I met Max Flower of Max Flower -TV. He was doing a series of interviews about media personalities and their roles in the community with their philanthropic work. As much of my social media marketing business is focused around charitable organizations and my belief in giving back to the community, I was delighted to participate in this series.
An organization that means a lot to me is Jewish Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Los Angeles. As a member of the Board of Trustees of JBBBS and a “Big Sister” I discussed my involvement with the 95-year old organization.
One of the questions asked of me was, “Since you’ve been involved with philanthropy, how have you changed as a person?” I know that when I go home at night knowing I have made a difference in the life of a child, I can’t put a price tag on it.
Max also interviewed Shira Lazar, who talked about her support of Twestival, Charity Water and Concern Worldwide. Bill Husak, athletic director at Loyal Marymount University also shared his vision about making a difference in the world.
Our ability to use our social media platforms for social good is a gift we have been given. How has charity and philanthropy affected your life?
