First of all, I want to thank everybody who wrote to me after my last issue. Your content submissions and offers to help are much appreciated! And your questions help me figure out what I need to address in future issues. So keep those emails coming to [email protected], and I’ll keep you in the loop on what’s happening.
We recently received the following in an email that captures how important AfterBurn is to members of our community: “I have truly found my community and my drive and my family…I am going to sign up for least one shift in every single department. Should anyone in any department need me for any reason at any time, if you see me walking by, call out or grab me and say “hey we need you, at *insert Department here*, and I will do the best that I can for whoever it is that asked me.”
100% participation: How ’bout that?
