Inspiration In Kindness

(By Stacie Ramos)


On occasion there is a story that simply makes you smile. It is usually a story of true goodwill and real community purpose. For me, that story would have to be a recent post in the St. Louis CNR Magazine.

“Local Companies Set-Up to Help Rebuild Fairmont City Playground” – that is a tag line to catch your attention! How often do you see that header in a construction magazine?  I had to read it, and I am so glad that I did.

My last post on was on creativity and being inspired in your work. This story will do that for anyone with a heart. A community in need, an advocate that pulls everyone together, and construction companies that respond to create a safe haven for a community to gather. Doesn’t get any better. I feel like I need fireworks, apple pie and a scoop of ice cream.

If you are looking for a good story to read or want to be reminded that there is purpose in what we do, follow the link below. I want to challenge everyone reading to actively look for ways that you can make a difference in the lives of those around you. Simply by using your talents, resources and connections you already have established through work and personal interest. SBI is doing great things in our local community through the volunteer efforts of its employees. Maybe someday you will see our name tag lined in an article that simply makes you smile!
