Work was rockin’ yesterday! Kronite musicians across the world shared their shine to celebrate our global community and to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Music-making moments took place at our Lowell, MA headquarters, Indianapolis Technology Center, and Bracknell, UK office.
Everyone was encouraged to take #inspiredacts selfies with Kronite “buskers” and share them online. For each picture posted, Kronos donated $10 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. What a wonderful way to spread joy and inspiration and encourage us all to embrace the spirit of giving. Not only did we make music today – but we helped make a difference.
I was smiling ear-to-ear with all the beautiful sounds resonating around the office. We had drummers, guitarists, vocalists, pianists, trombonists – you name it. I’ve got to brag at least a little about my coworkers…they were amazing!
‘Tis the season for kind hearts. Last week, the Indianapolis team volunteered their time at the WZPL’s annual Request-a-Thon, a fundraising event also benefitting children from Make-A-Wish. Next week, all Lowell bakers are being called to host a bake sale for the Merrimack Valley Food Bank. The Marketing organization (that’s where I live!) has adopted two families from Jewish Family Services of Metro West and will help purchase mattresses for a Salvation Army family who recently lost many of their possessions in a fire. And that’s not all. Numerous other groups within the company have their own initiatives to give back as well.
Yeserday's events remind me of one snowy day in 7th grade when I stood outside of a Walmart with my best friend. Our soccer team was raising money to help support a local charity. We decided to come up with a script, so we’d have an idea of what we would say to people passing by. One part was that every kind-hearted gesture counts, big or small. Today, I saw so many kind hearts come together in harmony – and it was marvelous. These Kronites give life to the GiveInspired culture we have, and who knew so many of them had such remarkable musical talent! What a merry, music-filled week it’s been.
