At Schell Brothers, we are all about showing gratitude for each other! We have a company tradition to “give kudos” to those who stand out and acknowledge how much we appreciate them. We decided to take this tradition to the public.
Project Kudos is about telling someone they’re amazing and feeling awesome about it. It’s about positivity, good vibes, and acknowledging all that shines around you. We have so many different people, and places, and things to be grateful for but sometimes we forget to show it.
We’re giving back to the community in a BIG way – and you can help.
Each month Project Kudos will be partnering with a different charity to help spread happiness and raise money for a good cause. We’re harnessing the power of social media to make people around us feel awesome! For every kudos given, we will donate $1 to our charity of the month. Plus, we will also place a pinwheel for every kudos at the chosen organization as a fun visual reminder and a thank you.
You can give kudos (to anyone – or anything!) by commenting on our Facebook or Instagram posts or fill out a digital sticker right on our website. At the end of the month, we’ll tally up the kudos, and Schell Brothers will donate. It’s that easy!
This month’s charity partner is Beebe Healthcare Medical Foundation! Beebe’s not-for-profit charitable mission is to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health to the people residing, working, or visiting the communities it serves. We want to help Beebe help Sussex County stay healthy, so make sure to shout out your favorite healthcare workers this month – they deserve it!
Thanks to everyone's contribution, we earned 96,796 Kudos for this month.
This month’s charity partner is The Rosa Health Center! For decades, Sister Rosa worked with the less fortunate in her Georgetown community, but her legacy and compassion for those around her has spread well beyond Sussex County. Her special calling was prenatal care social work, and with unyielding love and dedication, she helped care for and educate thousands of new mothers and babies. Named after Sister Rosa, The Rosa Health Center's mission is to impact the community in need and enhance lives by providing quality primary health care to patients. We are honored to help continue Sister Rosa's cause in collaboration with Apple Electric and will be using the money collected from kudos this month to purchase diapers for babies in need!
We are happy to announce our partnership with Big Fish Grill and their charitable foundation for the first half of March (1st - 15th). The Big Fish Charitable Foundation (BFCF) focuses on providing kids in need throughout Delaware with much needed supplies so they can continue to grow & thrive. Through the Basic Needs School Closet Program in partnership with the Delaware Governor’s Office, the foundation’s main purpose is to provide elementary and middle school students across the state with increased access to free products designed to meet students' basic needs. In return, giving them the opportunity to participate in class more effectively and thereby increasing their chances of being successful inside and outside of the classroom. Each school’s basic needs closet will be stocked with products considered essential to the wellbeing of their students, including hygiene products, school supplies, clothes, and more. Students will be able to discreetly access the closets throughout the school year. The Basic Needs School Closet initiative is currently being led from the Office of Lieutenant Governor, Bethany Hall-Long. Together, we invite you to give KUDOS supporting a CAUSE: improving the quality of learning environments and invest in the young generations.
In the meantime, continue to spread good vibes and to give kudos!
Get out there and give kudos –
for a cause!
As we watched the positive effects of giving kudos manifest themselves amongst our team at Schell Brothers, we thought, why not create a movement? Why not take our good vibes and spread them to other companies and individuals? In a world with so much negativity festering, we want to throw out as much positivity as we can muster and watch it grow. And we want you to help us.
