Blue Soda Promo 2018 Wrap-Up
As we near the end of 2018, we want to take this time to say goodbye to an eventful year and welcome 2019 with excitement and anticipation.
Over the course of the past year, Blue Soda Promo has found itself celebrating achievements, hosting fun events to bring the team closer together and giving back whenever possible.
And with such a slew of events that took place over the course of a year, we would like to highlight a few of our favorites (as well as the promotional products that made them possible).
The Blue Soda Promo team was lucky enough to participate in a company wide blood drive on World Blood Donor Day this past summer, all thanks to LifeSource and their donor bus!
We had over 25 employees that were able to successfully donate blood for our first annual blood drive, a tradition we plan to continue annually.
Each employee donned a festive, branded bandanna to showcase our company pride and to really get in character, because this company barbecue was unlike any other.
The main attraction at this event was a mechanical bull for all those willing to try their luck (many of whom were famously successful!). And with a company wide potluck to top it all off, food and entertainment were never in short supply.
Take Your Dog to Work Day
When it comes to relieving a little stress at the office, we know exactly what we’re doing. On national Take Your Dog to Work Day, and several other days throughout the year, all company employees brought in their furry friends for a visit that was truly pawsome.
They know better than anyone that some days can be ruff, so each dog was more than willing to put in the work to ensure there was a smile on every employee’s face.
Oh, and they definitely each enjoyed plenty of treats in these branded pet products as a reward for a hard day’s work.
Breast Cancer Awareness
In order to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month, the individuals at Blue Soda Promo joined in a fundraiser in which all proceeds went to the Susan G. Koeman foundation.
In exchange for each donation, individuals were given a branded, Breast Cancer Awareness shirt to help spread awareness year round.
The company was able to raise plenty of money for the foundation and all employees proudly wore their awareness shirts in support of survivors everywhere and in hopes of a cure in the near future.
Bake and Take
Holiday cookies are a staple every December, so this year, the team at Blue Soda Promo decided to do things just a little differently.
We participated in our annual cookie swap, but with a bit of a twist; we called it the Bake and Take.
Each participant made a plate of cookies for sharing at the office and another to be taken to a local nursing home for enjoyment by all. So not only did the office smell of those wonderful, sweet aromas, but everyone also partook in the spirit of giving, leaving all with the feeling of satisfaction.
Feed My Starving Children
Last, but not least, the team participated in a packing session with Feed My Starving Children, a local organization that packages and ships nutritionally complete blends of food to the neediest children around the world.
Our team rocked some attractive hairnets in their volunteer efforts, rounding out the year at the company with a final event completely in the spirit of giving.
And, to ensure the team looked like a unit, each participant wore a branded tee showcasing our volunteer initiatives in a fun and creative way.
As you can see, 2018 was an eventful year for the Blue Soda Promo team, and certainly one that will be remembered well into the new year and beyond.
That being said, we look forward to an even more amazing 2019, which will undoubtedly bring with it plenty of fun, various opportunities to give back and a number of new promotional products, ready to promote your brand.
With that, Happy New Year to everyone from the team here at Blue Soda Promo!
See you in 2019!
