Three years ago, I signed onto this blog for the first time to introduce myself to all of you as the new girl in Platinum. I can’t believe it has been 3 years already.
(I am going to walk down memory lane for a bit before I get to the good stuff, I hope you don’t mind.)
This place formed me into the person I am today, and these women formed me into the person I want to be. If it was not for them, I would be so lost! Even though I cannot believe it has been 3 years, I also cannot believe it’s ONLY BEEN 3 YEARS. So much has changed in not only me, but the company. So many roller coasters, all the ups and downs, but definitely no regrets. Walking into MJC on my second day (notice I said second day, I’ll get to that later) I had no idea my life was going to evolve so much. I love this place, I love these people. They are my people, and my forever friends.
My first day at MJC was actually at a Women’s Build with Habitat For Humanity. What an awesome first day, huh? Once Denise offered me the position (after making me wait almost an entire week), she asked if I wanted to join a few of the girls for a day on a Habitat site, how could I say no??
I am so glad that was my first day, I got to work with Kiara and Kayla in our community. My first day was not about MJC, it was about what we could do, through MJC, for others.
It didn’t take long for me to learn the phrase “it’s not just clothes”. The clothes are what brought me here, but it was also the people. I loved “stalking” the Facebook page and reading the blog, I wanted to be a part of that world, a world of cute, fun, strong women who were changing OUR world.
Now, I will get to my point today. Platinum has always been about giving. From slipping surprises into orders to secretly reading comments on FB and IG to Spread the Love. Oh, how I love STL. I love reading your stories, learning about those you care about, and discovering your giving hearts.
Being able to give back is my favorite part about my job, sending along a little extra smile and letting someone know they are thought of goes a long way.
So here we go, Platinum Spread the Love is back! Well, I guess it has always been here, but I think a reminder needed to go out. It’s super simple. Nominate anyone who makes you smile and who you want to return that smile to! It can be a mother, your friend’s daughter, your wife, someone down on their luck, or a friend who would love a little surprise. Send your nominations to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. **DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE COMMENT SECTION.** And in turn, once we read through all the nominees we will pick 1 or 2 a week. You MUST include address, names, ages, and sizes. If these are not included, your nomination will not be accepted. All packages are sent anonymous with a simple note from the Platinum Girls.
Can’t wait to read your nominees, so keep sending them our way whenever you feel the need. 😊
