One of the worst hurricanes ever to hit Houston was Hurricane Harvey. It dumped torrential rains on the metropolis, causing a massive flood that led to the loss of lives, homes and pets. And while all these were happening, the entire United States and other countries abroad were quite powerless to come to the aid of the victims.
In the midst of all the mayhem brought about by the nature’s tempest, Stream Energy, an energy resource company based in Dallas, was among the first to shell out money that it netted from the lucrative sales of its energy venture to support the overall recovery, and relieve the monetary dilemmas of its own clients.
The regular philanthropic activities done by the company has always been a part of its corporate goals. And this being the case, Stream Energy lately established Stream Cares – the company’s charity foundation. The foundation is to validate its continuing charity works across Texas, and throughout the United States. This has been an activity that Stream Energy has been involved with for over a decade.
Hurricane Harvey is a case in exception, since Stream Energy went beyond money to assist in the rescue undertakings. In such times, the philanthropic efforts of a company are often regarded as an expansive means to gain media attention. Although in a practical way, it is a means to cushion undesirable incidents that are likely to happen such as when difficult times lead to layoffs, when earnings decline, and when scandals transpire.
To boost its philanthropic activities, Stream compensates its affiliates to build an association of loyal customers to whom they can provide numerous products and services that ranges from an energy rate that does not fluctuate to plans for mobile phones. The said services/products are provided by the company for corporate and residential clients who can likewise avail of the services of virtual physicians, telemedicine and a reduced clean energy rate.
The successful associates of Stream are paid commissions depending on the sales and in essence are considered business owners and entrepreneurs, who support the charitable cause s of the company. And this is how Stream Energy is able to subsidize its charities via Stream Cares.
