Tony Petrello: Why the love for philanthropy?

A business entity cannot survive on its own. It needs the help of the community to grow together. This is exactly why public relation is an important aspect of any business. A business must exist even when dealing with nonprofit operations. There is a need for the business to help the community in times of need. This is something that needs to be appreciated by every business out there. Businesses should not just be dealing with profit making while the community is in dire need of support. They should chip in and offer support where necessary. Every business gave a role to play in the society apart from making huge profits. In the state of Texas, there is a company that knows this role very well. This is none other than the biggest drilling firm in the country known as Nabors industries.
