As Winter comes to a close (maybe), a new season is ushered in and we’re not talking about Spring. No, it’s not a new Season of Giving, but a new Culture of Giving! We’re teaming up with new partners to bring you some exciting events and ways to give back to the community. While we’re still working out some small details on some projects, we wanted to get the news out now so you can save the dates and start planning.
First off, we want to announce that for March Community Day, we will start three standing donation drives for our community. Every Community Day event from March onward, we will be accepting donations of soda tabs for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana, eyeglasses (including even $1 sunglasses) for Lion’s Club International, and Box Tops for Education.
Secondly, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve partnered with Best Buddies and created a team to participate in their Friendship Walk to support inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We’ll be raising money for this wonderful organization and on April 28th, we’ll meet up in Celebration Plaza at White River State Park to walk and support this great cause. For more information and to join our team and start raising money today, visit the event page here. In the future, we plan on having events that will be teamed up with Best Buddies to allow a unique experience for both our trainers and the buddies.
Hot on the heels of the Friendship Walk is Free Comic Book Day on May 4th! We’ve teamed up with Downtown Comics North and Circle City Ghostbusters to have a booth with goodies and activities and will be raising money for a charity to be named at a later date! We’ll also be raising money for this charity during our April Community day meetups! Comics, Pokemon, Star Wars, and charitable donations collide in this celebration of nerdom so we hope to see you there. For more information, visit the event page here.
We have even more in the works but that’s news for another day. In the meantime, be sure to RSVP for these events, share them with your friends and family, and start raising funds today! We know you are all capable of great things and we fully expect to be blown away by your generosity once again.
