We work hard for our clients, but our dedication doesn’t stop there. We are committed to those we have the privilege to serve around the world as well. You might call it charity. We like to call it gleaning. It means that each time we grow, we get to give a little bit more. And that drives us.
[glee-ning] : noun
An ancient agricultural custom, which allowed the poor to gather a portion of the yield from a privately owned field as the crop was being harvested.
At the core of this practice is the assumption that the harvest is meant for sharing. It assumes that owners should never plow to the edges. And it assumes that those less fortunate have a right to the yield.

We know that as a growing company in a first world society, we have a social obligation to pay attention to those who are much less fortunate. This notion is more than a nice idea. It’s a heart of our company DNA.
1. We plant to the edges.
Investing in the work to grow isn’t a chore. It’s an honor and privilege, one that we’re fortunate to have. So, we grow deliberately, which allows us to give abundantly.
2. We take responsibility for every square inch.
Our commitment is to constantly do the right thing, even when it’s though. We strive every day to preserve the kind of integrity and work ethic that our clients deserve because we’ve been given a field to harvest, and we want to be true stewards.
3. We don’t harvest to the edges.
Growing to give means perceiving profit in an entire new light. We know we’re lucky, and just flat out thankful. We never assumed that 100% of the harvest belonged to us.

Through the years, we’ve had the luxury of meeting some truly inspiring and amazing people in some of the most impoverished parts of the world. We refused to come back to the comfort of the U.S. and reflect on our experiences with foolish, empty statements like, “It really makes you think, doesn’t it?….”
Instead, we decided to put our money (and our time and our bikes) where our mouth was. We got to work with a few key projects that we feel are allowing us the room to grow to give. Let the gleaning begin!
