Tomatoes for Charity

12 Jul 2017

Jim Rohn said that “a good criterion for measuring success in life is the number of people you have made happy,” and he recognized philanthropy as one of the best ways to bring happiness to the largest number of people.  This year, I set a goal to raise as much money as possible for INTO Giving by growing and selling organic heirloom tomato plants. Back in January, I sprouted seeds indoors under lights, and through the spring I carried them out to my south-facing driveway every morning and put them to bed in the garage at night. When they were big enough, I sold them to people here at INTO OSU and donated $328. I not only raised money, but I also had a great time connecting with my co-workers!
