What a treat for me to be in our home office this week when the energy level is so high. That is due in part because Mother’s Day is just ahead and that’s one of our busiest times of the year. But another reason why our staff is in such high gear is because everyone here is working feverishly to produce the complimentary Operation Hi Mom canvases for the mothers of our deployed service men and women.
As most of you know, our Operation Hi Mom program awards our deployed men and women a free fine art canvas, printed from a favorite photo, which we mail or deliver to their moms on Mother’s Day. But this year has been far and away our BIGGEST year yet for this program. We have literally received more than 2000 requests! The deadline for requests has passed and everyone here at our corporate office is working like crazy to get these special orders out in time for Mother’s Day. Thousands of moms across the country will be very surprised and very blessed in the next two weeks when these packages arrive at their doorsteps. Just take a look at the photo below, and you’ll get an idea of the magnitude of this project.
After this photo shoot, I was at our company snack bar getting a cup of coffee, and one of our employees turned to me and said: I’ve never worked for a company before where what I am doing every day really makes a difference in peoples’ lives.
Before I could reply, he added: You must be very proud.
He is so right. There simply are no words to describe how proud I am of our staff and our company owners for their spirit of community service and for their commitment to those serving our county!
And to all you moms out there who have sons and daughters who are deployed and serving our country…we at Canvas on Demand thank you and honor you on your special day. Mom
