Sarah McMahan Makes A Donation to Samaritans Purse!

Posted by | Contributions | No Comments

We live in such a beautiful, sheltered place here in Tahoe.  It’s easy to be oblivious to the natural disasters happening around us.  However seeing the pictures from the Tsunami and recent tornado destruction in the US…it’s heart breaking.  In addition to praying for the victims, donating money to relief efforts is the least I can do.  I know every little bit helps. – Sarah McMahan

Corporate Visions would like to thank Sarah for her generosity.  As a sign of our appreciation and support, Corporate Visions has made a matching donation to the Samaritans Purse.

Tornado Relief Efforts

Posted by | Contributions | No Comments

Severe storms wreaked havoc across the South on April 27, causing widespread damage and tremendous loss of life. The storm system spawned tornadoes that wiped out homes and businesses, and left hundreds of thousands of people without power. More than 340 people were killed, including at least 250 in Alabama. 

Corporate Visions has reached out to support relief efforts in Alabama through a donation to:

Susan Trumpler’s Most Rewarding Charitable Organizations

Posted by | Contributions | No Comments

Susan Trumpler has donated to her most rewarding charitable organizations (Honduras Rescue Mission and Arise Africa). Both are focused on children in third-world countries having what they need to become productive citizens – basic food, shelter, and education. She believes that every child born has the right to use their gifts to make a contribution to the world – but as Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs so clearly depicts – they can’t achieve self-actualization until their most basic needs are met.

Susan says, “Thank you so much for making community and world outreach a priority for our company and for the generous match that will be made. It makes me very proud to be an associate.”

Joe Terry Shows His Support For The Special Olympics

Posted by | Updates | 2 Comments

Running to the sound of a different drum

On September 21st, and in an effort to raise money and support for the 2018 Special Olympics, CEO Joe Terry took to the trail with a fierceness rarely seen in bay area executives. Joe completed the 5k run in just under 30 minutes and directly raised over $1,300 for the Special Olympics.

You’ve gotta know where all this comes from,” says Terry, “these Olympians are every bit as strong and dedicated as those that we’re used to in the other Olympics. It’s almost like their ‘disability’ brings out the seriousness in them. These guys kill it.

Joe has plans to run in next year’s event and encourages all others with Corporate Visions to step to the challenge and join the Special Olympics fundraiser on September 23rd, 2011. Get more information about this fundraiser here.

Posted by | Updates | 3 Comments

Creating a Sustainable Tahoe

Cary Crites has recently partnered with start-up organization Sustainable Tahoe to help cultivate the Lake Tahoe area as a leader on a world stage in GeoTourism, Clean Mobilty, Green Building and Renewable Energy. The organization acts as the bridge between commerce and conservation, using Crites for help in speaking, project management and messaging.

It’s become a bit of a hobby for me,” notes Crites, “there’s been so much advancement in our projects that I take hours each night and much of the weekend to manage and creating proposals. There’s so much potential our area… and it’s a blast bringing it on.”

Cary plans to continue volunteering his time focused on the TahoeExpo in September of 2011, and invites anyone interested to help in the cause for a more sustainable Tahoe. Get more information about the organization here.
