For the fourth year in a row, we’re excited to partner with our friends at Life is good to support their annual Music Festival in September – a two day celebration of music and optimism, featuring three stages of nationally known musical talent, hands-on games, interactive arts activities and more.
100% of the proceeds from this great event go to Life is good’s foundation Life is good Playmakers – which helps kids overcome poverty, violence and illness by partnering with frontline professionals who dedicate their lives to caring for them.
Each year, Life is good co-founder Bert Jacobs personally challenges all of us at The Container Store to help with fundraising in support of Life is good Playmakers prior to the event – watch his fun video message to us that you can bet will surely inspire all of our employees!
We also encourage our customers to join us in supporting Life is good Playmakers! Together, we’re hoping to raise $30,000 this year for this great cause. You can donate and find out more about the Festival and our efforts here.
To make it even more fun for our employees to participate for the fourth year in a row, we’ve once again launched The Container Store’s “Ultimate Life is good Fundraising Contest.” The top three employees (one each from our store, our Home Office and our Distribution Center) who raise the most money between now and September 2 will get an all-expenses paid trip to attend the Life is good Festival and enjoy a VIP experience, complete with backstage passes and artist “meet and greets.” Plus, the store that raises the most will get a special in-store celebration and gifts from Life is good!
We hope everyone connected with our business gets involved in supporting Life is good Playmakers. Happy fundraising!
