Making Millions of People Happy Every Day

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

– Fred Rogers 

Dear Team Tahzoo – 
Over the last couple of months, there have been a number of incidences that have weighed heavily on my heart. The bombing of innocent people in Manchester, the public hatred expressed in Charlottesville, and most recently the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Worse yet, that isn’t even a complete list of recent tragedies. It has been overwhelming for me and I’ve been told by people I am the most optimistic person they know. For those of you at Tahzoo who have been personally affected by these events, please know that we are here to support you in any way that we can. If you need anything just reach out to me directly. 
At the All-Hands Meeting, I spoke about the fact that we have the opportunity to make millions of people happy every day. That is a remarkable thing and something we shouldn’t take lightly. Our work is improving the customer experience for people. Done properly, we can make little differences every day for a lot of people. The purpose of our company extends well beyond any one of us individually and towards a higher purpose. There is some comfort in this when I think about how crazy the world is these days, but that’s not enough. 
We will be heading into the holiday season shortly, a time when we think about charitable giving. I won’t go so far as to say there is a chill in the air, but it’s coming soon. If we want to make the world a better place, then we need to do something about it; take action, invest ourselves and our talents. I’d like each office to spend some time and pick a cause – preferably a charitable one – to invest in. If you work remotely, associate yourself with an office of your choosing. Have a few meetings and calls and pick something that your office can support for the next year. Let’s invest in making the world a better place. 
I’ll reach out to the leadership in each of the offices and publish the causes in the next month. From time to time I’d like to feature the activities and impact that you’re creating in the Desk of Brad. I look forward to hearing the stories and sharing the results over the next year. 
Let’s go be great!
