Marion Ruthig had been a CPA for 12 years when she saw a video of Hesed House, a nonprofit in Aurora that serves the homeless. The video so inspiried her that she left her job to start I Support Community, with a mission to create videos of other nonprofits to let them tell the story and give a way for people who want to get involved to research organizations where they might volunteer or make donations.
