Involved entrepreneurs Breda

Major cleaning in singels Breda on the “Directors Make Dirty Hands Day” of March 15, 2019.

Creetion is a partner of the Foundation concerned Entrepreneurs Together for Breda. This foundation connects companies, civil society organisations and municipality in concrete projects with social significance.

Deep in the heart, everyone wants to mean something to someone else. Doing good feels good. This is true on a personal level, but certainly also business. Socially involved entrepreneurship has an impact on multiple fronts. It brings colleagues not only closer together, but also to the purpose of being supported. Ultimately, it’s about the radiant laughter of people who help and the people who are helped.

Involved Entrepreneurs Breda wants to see that smile on as many faces as possible, by organizing meaningful meetings between companies and social institutions. No vague promises but notarized agreements to achieve concrete goals. This does well for entrepreneurs, for employees, volunteers and of course the Bredase society.

On 15 March 2019, as director of Creetion, I set out early to make the girths of Breda cleaner with other entrepreneurs involved on boats and pontoons and armed with hooks and ropes. It was a cold rainy day, but a lot of old rubbish was brought up. From bicycles to shopping carts and from rims with tires to barbed wire.

Halfway through, the teams were switched and I was allowed to help clean the banks of the girth. It is inconceivable how many garbage bags with plastic and other rubbish you get off the banks between the grass and the sprains today.

At the end of the day we were soaked, but satisfied by the useful hard work and tasted the beer extra tasty. Nice to see that so many fellow entrepreneurs also get their hands dirty to make Breda even more beautiful. On to the next activity of the Foundation concerned entrepreneurs Breda.
