Danielle Craig & A Lesson in Gratitude

lesson in gratitudeRecently we teamed up with Danielle Craig.¬† She describes herself as “a mom of two boys, wife, Emmy-award winning journalist ‚Äď and most recently a recovering pessimist.”¬† She hosts an inspiring podcast called Happiness in Progress and you can read her blog at daniellecraig.com

She approached us and asked if we would be willing to sponsor what she refers to as “a Lesson in Gratitude”.¬† We would be a good team since we both believe it is important to “give back”.¬† You can read about other ways we give back to our local communities here and to our global coffee growing communities here.

The Lesson in Gratitude

Danielle’s 5 year old son has nut allergies.¬† When he was about to start Kindergarten he was anxious. He was worried about starting school and being exposed to this allergen through other childrens’ lunches.¬† They came up with a plan.¬† They asked the 21 children in his class and their parents if they would be willing to commit to packing “nut-free” lunches for the entire year.¬† All of the families agreed.¬† As a way to thank them for making the effort to ease her son’s anxiety she wanted to show them gratitude. They thought a good way to do so would be to give a Human Bean gift card for each family.¬† That was when she approached us.¬† We were more than happy to donate the 21 gift cards.¬† We love finding creative ways to give back in our communities such as this!

Grants Pass customers¬†were also happy to celebrate this day with their favorite baristas around. A regular customer from¬†Grants Pass ¬†commented on Facebook, “Thanks for the great service and for¬†always remembering my drink order even before I get there!” Congratulations on the anniversary Grants Pass!
