"The fact that I can actually use my business skills to help positively impact the world is inspiring. I recently visited Guatemala to help consult with 20 small businesses on their branding issues. It was an enriching experience and I feel as if I got much more than I gave."
"My experiences with Bpeace have been only positive. Wonderful people all over the world working together to help make areas of conflict better places for the people that live there. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization."
"I volunteer over Skype with businesses in Afghanistan. The work is intellectually stimulating. Resources and tools that are readily available here in the U.S. are not elsewhere, so we need to be creative. It's all very fulfilling. Try it and you will never want to do anything else!"
