Announcing “One Step Forward” – the Walker Sands Philanthropy Initiative

One Step Forward Walker Sands Philanthropy InitiativeI am very excited to announce that Walker Sands started “One Step Forward”, our official philanthropy initiative. The goal of this program is to help the people and causes that matter to us. Caring about the community is important to so many of us, so having an opportunity where we can all give back together was something we wanted to begin.

Our first official event was yesterday. We helped the Little Giraffe Foundation put together spring gift bags for NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Units) for six hospitals in Chicago. The bags consisted of toys, children's books, and a card for the families of babies in the NICU.

Another event with LGF that I wanted to share is the annual Memorial Day Cubs Rooftop event. We will be heading to Beyond the Ivy on Memorial Day to take in a Cubs game with all proceeds going to the foundation. Tickets are $125 with all proceeds going to the foundation. We will have more details regarding that event coming soon, should you be interested in joining us. Last year was a blast, so we are looking forward to another successful event!

Other events we are hoping to get involved with this summer include a happy hour for a non-profit of choice, helping out at a local shelter, and working with Habitat for Humanity to help build a house for a family in need.

Have an idea for an event or a non-profit you’d like Walker Sands to get involved with? Send an email to onestepforward@walkersands.com and we will start planning!
