SAN JOSE, Calif. September 24, 2020 /3BL Media/ - PayPal Holdings, Inc. today named 20 nonprofit community partners that will receive grants and contributions totaling $5 million to support Black-owned businesses across the U.S. in their recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2018, PayPal anonymously surveyed a large sample of its hourly and entry-level employees to assess their financial security. The results indicated that almost two-thirds of surveyed employees reported periodically running out of money between paydays. This was disappointing and surprising, but provides a valuable lesson to other leaders: Although PayPal's internal analysis showed that it paid at or above market value for each of its employees, the wages were not always sufficient for many families.
The consequences of global climate change are not a distant problem. They are real and plainly visible today. Raging wildfires are once again devastating forests across the Western United States, with smoke spreading east across the continent, causing unhealthy or hazardous air quality for millions.

History shows that it is the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged communities that bear the brunt of the financial blow that often accompanies climate events.

Bridgett Jeffries has dedicated her life to caring for other people’s furry family members as if they were her own. The longtime animal shelter volunteer and proud parent to three dogs took a leap of faith in 2017 when she left her corporate job to open Café Wakefern, a dog daycare and boarding business, in Columbus, Ohio. She named her business after a café to evoke a “cozy, communal” coffee-shop feel, indicative of the safe and welcoming environment she creates for her canine customers.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sep. 1, 2020 /3BL Media/ -- More than 700 companies have now joined Time to Vote, a business-led, nonpartisan coalition that aims to increase voter participation in the U.S. elections. Voter turnout in the U.S. is one of the lowest in the developed world and one of the most common reasons people give for not voting is that they are too busy with the demands of life and work.
For my latest Never Stand Still episode, I had the privilege of speaking to Dawn Porter about her latest documentary with Magnolia Pictures, “John Lewis: Good Trouble”—a film about the civil rights icon, community organizer, and Congressman who dedicated his life to social activism and legislative action. With the issues John Lewis stood for currently at the forefront of our national dialogue, Dawn’s film couldn’t be more timely.
