This is a great idea, kudos to Katherine V. Smith and her team at The Center for Corporate Citizenship (at Boston University). We hope other Universities will do the same.

"Dear MicroEmpowering, 

As the world begins to comprehend the devastating impact of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the Center extends its deepest sympathies to the people and businesses struggling against extraordinary circumstances. Our community of companies includes several headquartered in Japan and hundreds of others with business operations throughout the country.


Today we have created a discussion space on this crisis in our online Member Community.  Community members are encouraged to use this space to share ideas about how they are supporting employees and operations affected by the disaster.


Katherine V. Smith

Executive Director"

Wonderful idea, you can count us in! To our blog readers: please spread the word.
