In Which The New Donors Choose Office Makes It Quite Dusty In My Own

Thank You Wall 2

You guys are a work of art. Lookit!

From the lovely Katie B. at DC:

We just moved into new offices that we’re so excited about. We had partners donate construction supplies, furniture and…chalk artwork!

Attached is a picture of The Playground, our common space that features chalk murals. Also attached is a picture of the “Thank You Wall” mural, which includes an homage to Tomato Nation.

We wanted to share and let you know how much we appreciate you and your community. You guys have played such a key mobilization role in making us who we are. So…THANK YOU!

I mean, where to start. How about here: that’s alllll you guys, so congratulations, but it’s worth noting, while honking ultra-casually into a tissue, that this is one of’s great qualities: making everyone involved feel as though they matter.

I will also add, with all the respect in the world and the understanding that the order is no doubt COMPLETELY random, that we are above Oprah. Hee.

Anyway: great job, again, some more. And I happen to have a few gift cards left over from Promato, so let’s reverse-birthday-month it up in here: you suggest projects I might like (one per comment), 10 (ten) randomly selected peeps get a gift code. Selection takes place March 21.
