Love Welcomes…

It is always exciting to grow our team! Thomas is a fresh face and Emy returns to us after missing Love for two years while she was in San Diego. These two are excellent additions to the agency and both departments, creative and media.

Everything is Fried: An Ode to Big Tex

Just last week, I saw you at the fair.

You waved to me, like no one else was there.

You watched over the land and our fried food,

From fried butter to Girl Scout cookies, whatever our mood.

 

And then today, tragedy struck.

They all tried to save you, each Dallas fire truck.

At 60 years old, now we bid farewell,

To the man that always made my fair days so swell.

 

You survived football battles, the wild bird show too.

You even let them sell fried alligator right next to you!

You’re a true Texan man in your red and your blue,

Your poor awkward left arm never knew what to do.

 

So here’s a final wave, Big Tex, King of the Fair,

Thanks for waving to us, at least you went out with “flair”

 

 

R.I.P. Big Tex

Some day in the fall of 1952 – October 19, 2012

Big Tex and I last weekend (plus some of our friends)

Love Matters

What Really Matters

We have already posted several times about our “Love Matters” program — and I have to say it’s awesome to work at an agency that not only does great work for our clients, but also does great work in the community and tries to make a difference in the world.

Love has been a sponsor of a local group out of Richmond, TX that boxes up items each month and sends care packages to our military across the world.  What started as a small church project of sending one care package every few months, has now grown to sending over 20 care packages each month.  Care packages include everything from candy, books, hotel-sized shampoos and personal products to hand-written cards and letters.  Some packages are sent to family and friends in the military, while others are random troops selected from  a website called www.anysoldier.com.  Many items are donated, but those still needed are bought with the money received from monetary donations, which also help pay postage of $14 a box.

This group of well-doers often receive letters and emails back from the military, and it really is amazing to read their reactions.  One of the soldiers commented that it is “like Christmas every time we receive a box.  We all gather around and when it is opened each one of us takes one item.  Of course, the letters and cards are shared by all.”

In the Navy they post the pictures, cards and letters on the ship doors so everyone on the ship can share them.  Here is an example of a recent note received…

“Support is the name of our game, and our playing field is enormous.  That being said, you would not imagine the appreciation we have for complete strangers to put forth the time and effort to support us with no obligation to do so. 

Your kindness ripples throughout the Marines, a feeling of pride reinforced by the clearly made fact that people do still care.  You would not believe the morale boost something as small as a Marine finding his favorite candy provides, lifting his day and ultimately those around him, as well.  It is because of people like you that we stay motivated to continue to fight, strive to work harder, and get the job done, a job you make that much easier.”

I don’t know about you, but that note gives me chills and makes me proud to work at an agency that supports the troops across the world and keeps focused on all that really matters.
