Home - Years Of Living Dangerously

We’re very happy to support Years of Living Dangerously, a new documentary from our friends at Showtime Networks that explores the issues of climate change.

The project portrays the current and intensifying
effects of #climatechange on everyday Americans and demonstrates how they can take action.

As James Cameron, the series’ executive producer, told Reuters, the aim is to convince people that global warming is an existential threat that demands major action.

In honor of #NationalVolunteerMonth we would like to share the latest CBS volunteer event that took place on April 6th in Dallas.

Boys and Girls Club Gets Painting Makeover from CBS Volunteers

The Main Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington was in immediate need of upkeep and a fresh coat of paint.

CBS volunteers answered the call to clean and paint the interior of the gym, making it an inviting place for the children to take part in fun, team-building after-school activities, including playing basketball and ping pong.

Children are the future and we at CBS are excited to be working with our non-profit partner, training and paving the way for our youth to make their mark on the world.

Thanks to generous financial support from Winthrop-University Hospital through our EcoAd program, The Long Beach Library’s Point Lookout Branch and The Long Beach Public Library will benefit from energy-efficient lighting upgrades.

The lighting retrofit will enhance the overall appearance of both libraries, reduce energy usage and electric costs, and ultimately save taxpayers money.

This morning a special celebration kicked off the partnership at The Long Beach Library’s Point Lookout Branch.

We are happy to share that our President Paul Polizzotto will be featured on ThatMatters Live, a Google + hangout series this Friday, April 4, 12-1pm. Watch him share his experiences on creating and successfully growing a sustainable company.

What a beautiful day it was at the Hawley Veterans Center in San Diego. Volunteers from Do Good. Live Well. showed up to the Volunteers of America, Southwest Center to work on beautifying the landscape and making other much- needed renovations.

Thanks to UnitedHealthcare’s funding, the 20-bed transitional housing facility in El Cajon that serves single male veterans who are homeless with disabilities had flooring, energy-efficient heating and air conditioning units installed. The upgrades will reduce utility costs and make the Center a comfortable home for the veterans to recuperate and gain the skills they need to enter the workforce once their two year stay is over.
