On this Christmas Day I would like to wish everyone a warm and wonderful holiday. If you celebrate Christmas or are just looking forward to the new year I hope you are safe, happy, and surrounded by loved ones.
On this occasion I wanted to share a story that touched my heart, from a company that I can already say that I simply ADORE working with–La Tavola. Earlier this month, in the TRUE holiday spirit–La Tavola Linen shared a wonderful story on their blog about how they decided to give a little back to those less fortunate this season. Here is a bit of the story in their own words:
“La Tavola has always felt a strong commitment to give back to our community year after year, particularly during the holiday season. This year, we decided to do something a little out of the ordinary and wanted to participate in the season of giving FIRST-HAND. Leading with the motto, “Everybody is somebody’s baby”, we feel that every person-young or old-deserves to feel a sense of warmth and kindness around the holidays. With this, our goal this year was to provide a small gesture of cheer to the homeless community of San Francisco.
We packed up over 200 backpacks full of fresh water, snacks, cozy blankets (made by us), and a small amount of cash. While we wish that we could have made thousands more, it was great knowing that these care-packages would be much-appreciated and put to good use.”
…The sincere gratitude that we have received is well-worth our efforts. We cherish bringing in the holidays with this positive sense of giving back to our community and look forward to future donations and acts of kindness.”
