Socially Responsible Investing
Two workshops in October on socially responsible investing will be offered in Seattle and Bellevue, by Certified Financial Planner, Eric A. Smith, and stock broker Wade Smith. The Humane Society will sponsor the Bellevue workshop on Oct. 8. Refreshments will be served and admission is free.

In the last decade, however, socially responsible investing has grown from $40 Billion to over $900 billion annually. This increase has been possible (occurred) because the idea that has spread to many individual investors as well as other types of organizations.
Smith and Smith point out that most people carefully decide/chose which organizations to donate time and money in (to) each year. But "why"?, they ask, shouldn't people consciously choose amongst financially sound investments that meet their (there) ethical, environmental, and social beliefs.
