As 2017 comes to a close, I wanted to send a personal thank you for being a part of the Big Blue Marble Family! The holiday season always makes me reflect on how grateful I am to have centers and a wonderful team to offer a program for children that truly makes a difference.
One of our core values, as you know, is our Heart Projects. Through curriculum, these projects focus on character development and teach children the importance of giving back. I wanted to let you know what our 20 centers and 4 after school programs accomplished, and what a huge impact your support provided this year. Alex’s Lemonade raised over $5,000, we sent hundreds of Little Dresses for Africa, and most recently packed over 400 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to be distributed across the globe. Not to mention funds from cookie dough and picture sales help support the operations of an orphanage in the Ukraine by supplying their food and heat for the entire winter! Knowing that the children in our centers learned through these projects that small actions can make a huge difference in our communities here and around the world, solidifies what we stand for as a company.
So, thank you. From the bottom of my heart. For donating items, extra money, supporting your kids to sell cookie dough to family, friends and neighbors, for buying pictures, and many other things you do as parents to support these projects. We would not have these successes without you.
I know you have a choice in choosing child care, and I am thankful that you have chosen us. I wish your family a very Merry Christmas and look forward to a fun and exciting 2018!
