Did you know that you can grow your business while helping others at the same time? It’s true.

There are been several businesses within the city of Casper that have helped others out and in the process, they’ve made contacts and they’ve gained the respect of others within the community.

Last month Haiti was hit with an earthquake that all but destroyed everything. There were more than 100,000 people that lost their lives in that devastating earthquake. People are homeless and they have no food or shelter to speak of at this time.

Local Casper residents and business owners have come together to raise money for this much needed area. They are doing fundraisers through events and other techniques to help where they can.

One local Casper business, Gigz  raised more than $8000 with the help of the Casper residents and the McMurry Foundation. All of that money went to the American Red Cross for the Haiti Relief program.

Dr Leman’s of Precision Prosthetics and Orthotics wants to help with the issues that have come about in Haiti as well. His practice is collecting prosthetics and he’ll be making a trip to Haiti in the very near future to help with amputations.

It’s times like this when local people and businesses come together to help out when there is a need. It may not be a local need, but it’s one that is still out there and requires the help of a lot of people.

Now you may be wondering how this can help your business. Well, people remember these businesses and how they helped the community. They will see how important it is to these business owners and they’ll want to make sure they stay in business for years to come. The only way to make sure this happens is for people to buy from them.

So the next time you hear of a business helping others in your community, make sure you use their services, visit their establishment, and recommend them to others. We want these local businesses to stay around Casper for a long time.
