“The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.”
“Even if I died in the service of the nation, I would be proud of it. Every drop of my blood … will contribute to the growth of this nation and to make it strong and dynamic.”
“The secret to getting things done is to act.”
“Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grown and develop.”
“Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.”
“You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.”
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
“Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life, and not something you do in your spare time”
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable … every step toward a goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”
“Man can never be a woman’s equal in the spirit of selfless service with which nature has endowed her.”
At MR we have the honor of working with political leaders, professionals and activists from around the world. All of our clients have one very important thing in common – a desire to make the world a better place. We get to see this passion and purpose up close and we also see that it’s not always accompanied by the funding to make turn vision into reality. To that end we created our Pro Bono Services in partnership with the Mitchem Rasmussen Family Foundation. Starting in 2015 we will select three newly formed non-profit organizations (501c3or 501c4 designation) to receive 60 hours our organizational services.
