I support this great initiative and find it very creative. It strikes me for a number of reasons. First, I love the creativity of a National Detroit-Style Pizza Day service initiative. It is a great way to help fight hunger and homelessness while promoting delicious pizza. Next, the article reinforces a common theme of Detroit Pride that I have become fond of during my time in the city. I love how proud the community is in its history as shown by the promotion of its famous pizza. The continued ingenuity of service was most striking to me. Detroit continues to support and lift each other up. Before coming to the city, I was unsure of how vibrant its community would be. I have been blown away by the continued acts of service, all to lift up fellow Detroiters.
At first this article seems simplistic. However, I think it gives a deeper inspiration about how businesses can give back. Businesses are often portrayed as focusing only on the bottom line, but this article shows that creative ideas to increase profits while positively impacting others is very possible. It is a demonstration of the social innovation we strive towards and one that I will keep in mind as an aspiring business owner. Whether it be through nonprofit consulting or a local pizza place, I am excited to see more social impact in the city.
