Maybe you thought it was being able to cut our chosen organization a big fat check at the end of each month. I'll admit, that feels pretty great! But it's not that.
Maybe it's getting creative and figuring out what new, fancy, dolled up drink will be the Drink of the Month. I love seeing how our employees play with this behind the scenes. Most drinks stem out of their imaginative experimentation and it's truly a joy to see them love their job and the product they create so much. But still, not that.
Ok, I'll just tell you. More than any other aspect of this program, I've been so overwhelmed by the amount of good that is being done right here at home. I love getting to know people who are passionate about making a difference in the world at their fingertips. It's not a world away. It's not involving people they can barely relate with. People like Leon and Molly at the Center for Prevention of Abuse see people come in from the streets they drive down daily. Jim with Winning Communities in Tremont gets the satisfaction of seeing families and people of all ages enjoying the beautiful projects they've made happen in Tremont, their hometown.
Be on the lookout for announcements regarding both of these awesome organizations as we get farther into July. We'll be selling ducks for the Center for Prevention of Abuse's annual Duck Race fundraiser, and Winning Communities has some public forums coming up to get your input on what bettering Tremont looks like to you!
