Greetings everyone,

This past week, as part of a partnership with the Washington Capitals, we began to distribute hockey equipment to kids in need. first string of events with the Capitals. Over the last weekend we distributed hockey equipment to Maryland Blind Hockey & Dreams for Kids.  Hockey is an extremely expensive sport, so it was great to see so many kids get to try out hockey when they otherwise would not have had that opportunity because of equipment costs. I brought a full cargo van worth of equipment to the event. The equipment consisted of helmets, gloves, and shin pads so skating participants could fall comfortably and safely.

During the actual event, I was paired with a boy named James. We went sledding around the ice for a while (he didn’t want to skate), and then went to chat with some of the other participants. I had seen the sleds before in videos, but never got the opportunity to see one in person or use one. They glided comfortably on the ice and I got the hang of driving it around pretty quickly. On the other end of the ice, some of the children were showing off some really impressive hockey skills. I got to spend some time passing around pucks with the children. I was really glad that the Capitals brought us on for the event. It was a huge success.

I also had tickets to the Caps game this past Monday when they played the Arizona Coyotes. My friend got to the game before me and called me to tell me that I was on the jumbotron in a video recap of Friday’s event. Every video and photo for the event seemed to include a picture of me, but only at incredibly unflattering angles. This has led to a lot of ridicule from my friends.

We are also in the process of furnishing our office. Last week Max went on a trip, so I was here at 7 a.m. a few consecutive days for the drywall crew. I am definitely not a morning person. This job is really pushing me to drink (coffee for anyone who needs clarification) even though I’m not a fan. I am certainly understanding the benefits of it now.  As of right now, the drywall is done. I will be picking up tiles, paint, lighting, shelving, and furniture over the course of this weekend to fill out the office.  As we continue to grow, we have more and more visitors to the warehouse and thus need a more professional office space for these meetings.  So far so good!
