Volunteerism & Philanthropy (II) Feature Package

1. Become A Great Lakes Caring Hospice Volunteer For Veterans

JACKSON, Mich., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Lakes Caring Hospice, one of the largest and most trusted health care providers in the Midwest, is looking for volunteers to help with American Veteran patients in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.

2. Expedia, Inc. Cares...and Not Just About Travel

BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On one recent summer day, Expedia employees from around the world rallied together for the company's inaugural global Day of Caring. For the companywide volunteerism event, employees representing all functions, lines of business, and locations were encouraged to leave the office for the day in order to lend a hand to deserving organizations in their own communities. While company-backed volunteer efforts like Expedia's Day of Caring may not be a new idea in a city like Seattle that is rife with civic-minded corporations, the sheer reach of Expedia's first-ever global volunteer effort made for some pretty staggering results.
