BONUS: Josh recaps the conversation with Amy McLaren and highlights several key takeaways:  

  1. Core business offering does not have to be tied in with your cause.
  2. Be very sure on starting your own charity instead of supporting and existing one.
  3. Your ability to produce and bring in funds is a major contribution to an organization.
  4. Sustainability-plan for the long term
  5. Taking the core area of professional expertise and combining that with charitable ventures.
