community + collab over competition
Think about driving collaboration in Omaha, YOUR COMMUNITY. The more collaboration we have, whether it be pop-up events, meeting for coffee to chat about how you can help each other, supporting others on social media, etc., IT ALL MATTERS. Let's drive our community to be better and supportive to make Omaha a great place. We love Omaha. We are Omaha. Let's work together to create fun events that attract people, not narrow ourselves into a box.

thanksgiving reflections

thanksgiving reflections

Starting a business has been INSANE. I started hello ruby LLC last August and launched this year in April. The spring, summer and fall went by so quickly. It's crazy to see how the business has changed in that little of time. I never thought I would be doing a storefront for the holidays, but it's been a great learning experience! The best part of owning your own business if showing love for what you support and what you {and the business} stand for.

I wanted to talk about giving thanks to you, my #1 customHERS, as our first year wraps up. I also wanted to share the good causes we were able to support this year because of YOU. 

With your help, we were able to donate and contribute to the following charities/causes:

American Cancer Society

Sunshine Kids

Marian High School

Ronald McDonald House

Junior League of Omaha

The Humble Lily / Bethlehem House

UNO

The Stephen's Center

WOW! Thank you! 

As you sit down to your Thanksgiving meal {or 2nd or 3rd for the day -haha}, I encourage you to think about contributing in ANY way, shape or form to something that means a lot to you. Whether that means monetary or donating your time and volunteering! In 2018, I would like to focus on cancer related causes {BECAUSE F*CK CANCER - my family has been affected more than once: see previous post here} and Cystic Fibrous {my great friend Chad passed away + he was such an inspiration to me -- we will be focusing our February Valentine's Tour on CF donations and supporting that cause in memory of Chad}.

What are your fav. causes to support?? Is there one you love or one you want us to focus on??

Gobble gobble,

Jill
