NST Shakin’ Shoes and Takin’ Change for a Good Cause

We at Nuffer, Smith, Tucker believe it’s important to give back – it not only helps those in need and sets an example for other organizations, but it also encourages us a team.  Last Thursday, several NST’ers spent the morning downtown waving signs and collecting money in big red shoes in support of the third-annual Red Shoe Day.  Our team represented a few of the more than 1,200 volunteers who took to the streets to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego (an NST client) and the great work they do to provide a “home away from home” for families with critically ill or injured children in local hospitals.

It was inspiring to watch the creativity of some of the volunteers, some donning wigs, costumes and hula hoops to get attention, and it was even more special to see firsthand the generosity of those choosing to give back on their daily commute.  All in all, Red Shoe Day raised an estimated $150,000 for the charity, so thanks to all who donated!

What’s a creative way you or your professional team have helped make your community a better place to live, work and play?
