For nearly 125 days, Mike Klaas, region sales director at General Mills, has done something to put a smile on the face of someone in need. Since COVID-19 hit, Klaas has collected more than $18,000 via a GoFundMe fundraising page as part of his “Giving is Living” initiative to help fulfill basic needs for people living in Northwest Arkansas, where he lives and works. For his outstanding efforts, he was recently recognized with a General Mills Global Volunteer Award.

He told us, “The concept is simple: create a crowdfunded donation page, do good in the community, then share back via social media where the money is going. This way people can keep up with activities on a daily basis, learn about different local organizations, provide input on where the dollars go, etc…It’s truly a blessing to be part of this.”
