    My Story of Transformation - RunIn United - 2013 My Story of Transformation - RunIn United - 2013 Presentation Transcript

    • I to the Power of We Making a Transformational Impact in the World ©2012 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
    • “I to the Power of We” is a phrase we hear a lot at LinkedIn. It’s about how the individual, with the power of their team, their relationships and connections, can be successful in a way they simply couldn’t be on their own. It’s a value that we not only talk about – but one that I experienced in an incredibly moving way. ©2012 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
    • My Story of Transformation Started Here….  LinkedIn offered a transformation grant (up to $3,000) for something that would transform yourself, transform your family or transform your community  I applied for the grant to plan a 5K fundraiser fun run I had been planning in San Francisco for the past 10 years – The run benefits the Fred Gabler Helping Hand Camp Fund, a nonprofit hat sends underprivileged kids to camp – Fred was a friend of mine from summer camp who was killed on 9/11 – I plan the race every year to honor his memory & raise $ to send kids to camp  I was awarded the grant!  ©2012 LinkedIn Corporation.

    • …and everyone was so inspired they asked me: “How can we help?” “How can we get involved?” “What can we do?” and as a result… ©2012 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
