We’re celebrating our third year as a Life is good Festival Sponsor! This year’s Life is good Festival will be held September 22 and 23 just outside of Boston. We have had such an incredible partnership with Life is good and really topped it off last year at our company Staff Meeting with the presentation from Bert Jacobs, Founder of Life is good! He challenged us to think even more about living life (and doing work) with purpose, making optimism a state of mind and spreading optimism to the world. Well, what better way to spread optimism than by fundraising for Life is good Playmakers through the Life is good Festival! Life is good Playmakers help kids overcome poverty, violence and illness by partnering with frontline professionals who dedicate their lives to caring for them. And like last year, Bert has challenged all TCS employees to fundraise in support of the Playmakers – check out his video to all of us.
The Life is good Festival creates a COMMUNITY of fundraisers. It is a two day celebration of music and optimism, featuring three stages of nationally known musical talent, hands-on games, interactive arts activities, and the “Good Kids” zone – home to the top acts in kid’s entertainment. The best part, 100% of the proceeds from the festival goes to Life is good Playmakers.
The Container Store will once again be fundraising in each of our Stores, our Home Office and our Distribution Center – that’s 59 teams total! Across the company, we have elected “Optimists” who will be there to encourage us to have our largest fundraising year yet! Please join Life is good and The Container Store in raising money for the Life is good Playmakers. You can donate and find out more about the festival and our efforts here: https://lifeisgoodfestival.fundraise.com/activity/the-container-store
The Container Store employees love some friendly competition! The top three employees, one from a Store, one from our Distribution Center and one from our Home Office, who raise the most money will be the winners of our Ultimate Life is good Fundraising Contest! These top fundraisers will receive airfare, hotel accommodations, meals and tickets for two to the Life is good Festival on Saturday and Sunday, September 22 and 23. Additionally, Life is good will provide the winners with full hospitality access, inclusive of backstage passes and artist “meet and greets.” We aren’t stopping there – each member of the Store that raises the most money will also win some fabulous Life is good “goodies!” Let the fundraising begin!
