Leyla asked: “Do you do any charity work with your profits from Lime Crime? I know that it’s common for business owners to do this in their personal time and not talk about it. What charities or causes has Lime Crime helped? And what are some good ones that you recommend?”

Hi Leyla. Thanks for the question. I think it’s very important to give back. I love animals, so most of the charities I’ve supported, privately and with Lime Crime, have been rescue groups & shelters. My personal favorite, to which I donate consistently, is www.bideawee.com – they are the oldest no-kill shelter in the US. You can read about our charity work with them here.
I am always on the look-out for good causes to donate funds as well as time to. One thing I’m really interested in is speaking to young women about starting their own business and entrepreneurship. I feel that it’s something that isn’t widely available at the moment but could benefit women greatly.
