This is regarding my NGO involvement in the last 10 years:
On the last Netoo meeting I offered one of the NGO I founded to support the group (as in logistics, headquarters, know-how). NGO means non-governmental and non-profit. At this suggestion, Dragos Novac and Varabiescu asked me ironically: â€œwhatâ€™s in it for you?â€â€¦ of course I was offendedâ€¦
So this post is dedicated to all the volunteer work I did in the last decade: to all the students we trained, to all the children that we tried to bring a smile, to the thousands of youngsters we helped find a job, to all the projects we developed and all the long nights spend trying to change systemsâ€¦ in life not everything is about making money.
I still support ASLS, ASPSE, OSE, ANOSR, USR, GIPIR, INTERMEDIU or VIP in their projects and I strongly think that the business environment should strongly support the NGOs – I care about the Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives and I hate to see ignorant people talk about “how to make some money”.
Probably to Novac and Varabiescu â€œvolunteerâ€ is synonym to â€œsuckerâ€ and because many of the bloggers do volunteer writing, the â€œblogvertisingâ€ initiative is not so honest as it seemed to be the first time. Rest assured that the serious bloggers will not write about some new product just because an agency has a budget for this…
