​During the January Town Hall gathering, Owner Mark Danos demonstrated the impact we have as individuals at Danos with a pebble and a mason jar exercise. He explained that we as employees have the power to create a ripple effect when we toss our pebbles, or ideas, into the pond, indicating that any employee can make a difference.

For Valentine's Day, Tu presented the idea of Valentine's Day cards as a Danos Foundation initiative to raise money and spread a little love.
