For Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, compassion plays a vital role in the workplace.
In July 2016, my friend Suzanne called me out of the blue and said the most curious thing: I just met a family who moved to LA three weeks ago from Syria. Their 5-month old baby boy is at that age he wants to be upright but he can’t sit up on his own yet. Do you have a baby Jumperoo chair that you could spare?
Have you ever wondered how you could help the Refugee families that come to the United States? In this conversation with Miry Whitehill we discuss the three chronological pillars they practice to support each families’ first steps off the plane as they seek a safe haven from violence and persecution.
In July 2016, Miry Whitehill was a stay-at-home mom living in Southern California when a friend introduced her to a family of new arrival refugees from Syria—a dad, mom and their twin 5-year-old girls and 5-month-old baby boy. Whitehill’s friend, Suzanne, wanted to find a secondhand Fisher-Price Jumperoo chair (a chair that bounces and spins with toys that keep baby busy), so the tired parents could take a break. New Jumperoos cost between $70 and $130.
