Separate from his own foundation's efforts, Greg has collaborated with individuals, companies, teams, nonprofit organizations & schools on their civic & philanthropic projects in the U.S. & other countries. For instance, in conjunction with his visit to speak at an event in New York where students read The First Thirty, Greg also coordinated a community service essay contest based on the book & sponsored by the New York Giants for those students. In cities across the U.S. & elsewhere, he has teamed up with companies, organizations, restaurants & tourism bureaus to carry out editions of The Elevator Project - to recognize people who commit acts of 'every day hospitality'.
In other cases, Greg has been asked to serve as a resource for advice & consultation for people, schools, organizations & companies engaged in their own philanthropic &/or civic projects. On many occasions, he has helped connect two parties to facilitate their collaboration on a project together. For example, he connected a school for kids with autism & learning differences - with - a nearby retirement community. The kids' art went on exhibit in the retirement community, and the residents helped the kids with their reading. He connected a bank with a nonprofit that helps people who are blind & visually impaired. The bank ordered copies of The Silhouette Man for the organization's staff & some of the bank's executives attended functions to further support the organization. In another instance, he connected a nonprofit organization with an entrepreneurship program at a university (photo). The nonprofit's founder spoke at an event for the program's students. In turn, students in the program began volunteering their time to assist the nonprofit.
