2020 Reflection #2: Ingenuity

2020...the year the world shook.   Needless to say, your world probably shook too.  How could it not with such a momentous event?  And though you are undoubtedly aware of the effects of 2020, our hope with this blog series is to share a little of our 2020 story.  In the last blog, you can read more about our biggest fundraiser ever accomplished in our toughest year ever.  In this blog, I want to pull back the curtain to reveal our team's behind-the-scenes creativity.   "The measure of intelligence is the ability to change."  You know who said that?  Albert Einstein.  And from what I hear (mind you, I'm just a 'coffee guy'), he was pretty smart.  Actually, he was brilliant.  Much of his scientific work...

2020 Reflection #1: Out of Darkness Fundraiser

Large corporations were clearly not immune, as giants like JC Penny, Hertz and Ruby Tuesday's filed for...

No Place Like It

It was the Summer of 2009 when I met a girl from Statesboro.  We were working at the same camp and I could not keep myself from talking to her. "What school do you go to?" I asked lacking any other good convo material. "Georgia Southern." "Where is that?" "Statesboro," she said. "It's where I grew up." "...where?"  (I wasn't the best at small talk with a pretty girl) She sighed, "It's near Savannah." 'Ohhh.  Ok.  Sounds...neat." As I awkwardly stumbled through our first interaction, I found myself becoming interested in Statesboro, simply because I found myself interested in this girl.  Little did I know that one day I would marry her, and we would begin our own family in...
