Thankfulness and giving abound this time of year, and not to be cliche, but I wanted to take a moment and say thanks for all the support we received for our CAN IT! Putting Hunger In Its Place This Thanksgiving campaign. You are amazing. You who donated, who solicited your friends and colleagues, who took time and money from your personal supply to help others.
Today, I had the pleasure of going to Community Cooperative Ministries’ (CCMI) Soup Kitchen and dropping off 504 items! We surpassed our goal! Individuals and businesses supported us. Our team – Alex Fernandez, Annette Venditti, Christina Bockisch and Sarah Reaves – all pitched in. In fact, we had an internal competition going on who could get the most. Alex was crowned the king with 175 items!
Some of our donors that I’d like to thank include:
- Staff at Specialists in Reproductive Medicine & Surgery (Dr. Sweet)
- Sub & Pub in downtown Fort Myers
- Salon Adrian at Gulf Coast Town Center
- The Riverside Club
- The Auditor General’s office (our neighbors)
- The many friends, family members and colleagues who donated
It just amazes me how giving people can be – if they want to be and try to be. We saw the good in humanity. It was such a rush of joy to see the faces of the volunteers at CCMI when we pulled up and starting unloading items. I can’t, personally, wait to do it again next year!
Officially announced last week, Samantha Scott, Owner of Pushing the Envelope, was named one of Gulfshore Business’ “40 Under 40″! We couldn’t be more excited for our young leader (still in her 20s!).
Based on their professional achievements and community involvement, Gulfshore Business 40 Under 40 winners are considered tomorrow’s leaders and “difference makers” in the community. Many of whom are fellow Florida Gulf Coast University alum.
The 40 Under 40 selection is held annually. Nominations are accepted from around the Southwest Florida region with selections announced in their September issue. For more information visit http://www.GulfshoreBusiness.com
Congrats, again, to ALL the honorees this year. May we all work together for the betterment of our community and fellow community members. Hope to see everyone at the celebration on September 16th!
In the realm of business clients and/or customers are what keep “you” or your business alive. Business owners should be thankful for them and express their gratitude, usually offered through excellent customer service, coupons, etc. We’ve decided to do it via a national holiday!
Thanksgiving, after all, is about giving thanks. Instead of getting into the mess of the latter holiday season and the variety of holidays and religions, we decided to say thanks and celebrate the holidays with our clients now.
What better way to say thanks than with a personal note and yummy Ghirardelli chocolate?That’s what we thought! So, we launched what started as a simple effort to say “thanks and happy holidays” researching eco-friendly boxes, orange tissue paper, etc.
Below is what we ended up with. A classy way to express our thanks in a meaningful way. Plus, the gift recipients received cards encouraging them to pass along their thanks to others!
Wishing you were our client yet? If this was our first Thanksgiving thank you, can you imagine what’s to come next year?
