In this Thanksgiving week, friends, we wanted to make sure you know how thankful we are for YOU. You have propelled our small business forward this year, and for that, we are more grateful than ever.
Between pandemic fears, illness, lockdowns, quarantines, childcare scrambles, lost jobs and lower earnings, isolation from loved ones, canceled plans, and more, it has been a hard year for so many—small businesses very much included.
Here at Cultivate, we've navigated juggling kids at home with full-time jobs, disappointment over canceled plans, tough budget decisions at work, and at times, lower sales than expected.
BUT—but! Through it all, the Cultivate community has sustained us, encouraged us, and supported us (and each other!):
- You showed up for our first ever virtual Making Things Happen this summer (and boy have you shown up for Cultivate Your Year LIVE - 2,000 attendees and counting!).
- You nominated more than 1,000 heroes to receive PowerSheets this spring.
- You joined us on lockdown Zoom calls to notice the good.
- You've generously shared your goal success stories from this crazy year.
- You've sent us notes and cards and emails and direct messages and tagged your friends, spreading the word about who we are, together.
And yes, you've chosen to spend your hard-earned money with us, at a business where your purchase truly does matter. Your purchases have employed 13 passionate women (and supported their families), and, by extension, dozens of our small business partners. They've boosted our special needs kids giving partner. And they've helped us spread the message you believe in - that change is possible, and it is always worth it to choose hope.
To our American friends, we hope you enjoy a delicious meal with someone you love today! Around our tables, we'll be sharing the blessings that showed up in the midst of a hard year—the ways life changed for the better in 2020. We won't ignore the pain, but instead, we'll choose to see the beauty and goodness all around us—and to give heartfelt thanks. You'll be at the top of our list.
With gratitude and love,
