Yup, it's been two years since we opened our doors on a snowy, late winter day.
Since then we've raised $50,000 for two local organizations. We've made countless connections with people in the community and those far away - readers from Japan, China and the Netherlands follow us on our Facebook page. We've united something old with someone new a thousand times over. And we've recycled literally tons of stuff.
So, for our 2nd anniversary, we celebrated in two ways. First, we gave a party, and even we who did the work for it were amazed how fun it was! Second, we gave $1000 much-needed dollars to a school in Waukegan to help emphasize positive behavior.
Some photos from this busy month. Party pics:
And photos with Robert Silva, principal, and kids from Carman Buckner Elementary in Waukegan.
