According to No Kid Hungry, 16 million kids in America live in households that struggle to put on the table. This equates to 1 out of every 5 kids, which would fill over 845 basketball arenas. 22% of kids under the age of 18 live in poverty. Simply put, this is alarming.

There is, deeply embedded into our collective psyche, the drive to do good. Specifically, good for others, for those who can't do for themselves. And good in a way that can change someone's life. Last June, at the SHRM Annual conference in Atlanta, Dovetail sponsored a small hockey game in the park.

I recently went to the store to buy groceries for my ever growing boys (there are three). The receipt, when finished, stretched from my mid torso to the floor. I almost tweeted the site and then embarrassed by my good fortune, decided not to.

If you are anywhere in the vicinity of human resource ladies and/or SHRM then you know that we are nearing the summer solstice - when the earth does a massive axis tilt, CFOs breathe a sigh of relief (because all the HR people have left the building), and 15,000 SHRM members descend upon a convention city NEAR YOU to drink cosmopolitans, cart home obscene amounts of tchotchkes from the Exhibit Hall and, presumably, cram their brains full of HR knowledge.
