company with a mission for generosity
On my first 2008 weekend, I was in the Houston area, and coincidentally met a really neat couple, Simon and Faye Lee.
Simon Lee is founder and president of EIS Office Solutions, a company that he started with a long term goal to donate 50% of their profits to local and worldwide organizations. This generosity is focused on aid to Africa, specifically Sudan, to build hospitals and schools for underprivileged children. EIS Office Solutions is based in the Houston area, with very competitive rates for office supplies and even same day delivery. EIS also has discounts for churches and non-profit organizations.
I met Simon on the last day of the conference, so we only had a few hours left. We agreed to do a power lunch along with his wife, and had much to talk about. It was so exciting for all of us to learn about the world of private family foundations. They had just started a family foundation the week before we met, as a strategic vehicle to give generously to Kingdom causes. It is a very rare occasion when I can talk about what it is that I do, and have people actually understand and appreciate the value of it.
This couple was particularly inspiring and encouraging for me! This young couple want to be a testimony of generosity as next generation Asian Americans, and recognize the latent potential we have to make a difference in the world. I pray their example would be contagious.
