One of Fifteen

Communities are a place where we feel at home. As children we would wonder about our neighborhood saying hi to our neighbors and friends. Everyone knows each other in a close knit community and they help out in any way that they can. Today, if a house or garage catches on fire, we create go-fund me accounts or collect money to try and help the family recover from losing their possessions. If someone in our community has a child, gets married or loses a loved one, we send cards, flowers or gifts to that individual to let them know that we are thinking of them. 

Giving back to the community is one of the greatest gifts a company can do. Each company begins with  a community surrounding it and helping it to grow. It is this idea of “community” that Cheer Crates is striving to create within their business and their clients. Cheer Crates sponsors a program where every 15 boxes bought, a Cheer Crates is  donated to a Senior living in either an assisted living facility or at home. Cheer Crates mission is to help make sure that no senior ever feels as though they are unloved or unwanted and through this program we hope to accomplish this mission. Cheer Crates knows about the importance of a community and they understand how important a community is in the lives of people in today’s society.

Cheer Crates wanted to take this idea of community and help to spread it across the US which is why they started the 15 Boxes program. This program helps to create a community among Cheer Crates customers by giving them the opportunity to help contribute to sending a Cheer Crates boxes to someone in need. Because everyone deserves to have a smile brought to their face, and that is something that Cheer Crates and its customers are delivering, one box at a time.

Memories & Coloring Books

As child I would love to sit around and color for hours and hours, listening to music, or being outside in the sun. It really didn’t matter as long as I had my princess, wild animals or favorite cartoon coloring book. Coloring books were a way for me to get lost in my imagination without having to know how to read. 

Today, Adult coloring books are everywhere, some people thought that they would be a phase, and maybe they are, but in my house they defiantly aren’t. They have coloring books that are so intricate in detail that it takes a fine point pen or pencil to be able to color them. They make ones that are buildings, animals, words and even your favorite tv shows. Each of these coloring books are a way for adults to de-stress to relax and go off into their own world without having to really do much. According to an article written by Readers Digest, coloring books today also are a great way for adults to take a break from their technologies and rest their eyes.

I think that one of the main reasons that Adult coloring books are still around, and coloring books in general, is that it does help us to relax, no matter our age. For children, coloring with a crayon or marker allows them to have a break from their fast paced world filled with technology. For adults, the same thought applies, however there is also something more then just taking a break. For adults, coloring allows them to relive their childhood, when their lives were simple and care free, when sitting down and coloring allowed them to escape into a world of their own, just for a little while.
