Finding the perfect charitable partner!

       As your business grows you can't help but think about the environment and community that supports it.  For several months now we have been looking for a charitable partner that we can work with as our business grows.  There are so many amazing charities out there that we had a difficult time picking just one but, In early July Joyce and I had the opportunity to visit The Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery and take a tour with Joel Bergstrom, their Development & Communications Director.  We were immediately impressed with their mission, their staff & facility, and their long track record of helping families in need.  Besides their 24-hour crisis hotline the nursery offers crisis counseling, community referrals, parent education classes, family support groups and most importantly overnight residential care where parents place their children voluntarily for up to three nights while they address their crisis.  Being present enough during a crisis to know that you need to ask for help is impressive being courageous enough to accept it is down right amazing!  We are delighted to find such an amazing organization and look forward to the opportunity to grow the size and scope of our ability to help in the years to come.  For more information about The Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery please visit

       For the next four weeks (August 6th - August 31st) we will donate $10.00 to The Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery for every Original Bench Swing that we sell via our web store.  We have sold five since Monday and hope to sell many more.  If you have been waiting to buy our Original Bench Swing now is the time.  Click here for a quick link to our Bench Swings. 

As always, thanks for your support,

Bill & Joyce
