Hi Friends :)
One year ago, at the very beginning of 2011, we were announcing the launch of Love Drop, not quite certain about what we were going to do, or how we were going to do it, but tremendously excited about the possibilities. And today, at the very beginning of 2012, we come to you in exactly the same way . . . with the added thoughts of great satisfaction and thankfulness for a job well done.
With your help, we have accomplished our goal for 2011 – to build a new micro-giving project that allowed anyone to give just a small amount, but make a huge difference for a deserving family. Together we gave over $90,000 this year to 12 families who will never be the same thanks to your generosity.
(And speaking of families, make sure to check out the final Drop video we just did with Diomi and Nalee! We went back to where it all started in Milwaukee, and surprised them with the best Christmas ever :))
Thank you all so, so much for being a part of the journey with us this year. We’ve connected with hundreds of new friends as a result of Love Drop, and you know we’ll continue to be in touch as we go. This phase of Love Drop may be over, but you better believe we’re always cooking up something big!
For now, though, we bring 2011 to a close, and thank each and every one of you again from the bottom of our hearts; not only for supporting us these past 12 months, but more importantly for *believing* in us and what our project stood for. We wish you nothing but love and joy in the new year ahead, and we will always remember what an incredible team we had here.
As always, God bless, and we’ll see you on the interwebs.
– Nate & J$
P.S. Check out our compilation video up top capturing some of our favorite moments of the entire project. Shout out to Matt Kearney for allowing us to incorporate one of his brilliant songs in it.
P.P.S. Remember that everything you do to spread love to others MATTERS, even the little things! So keep it up in 2012, okay? :)
