​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.

GL Supervisor Tu Le decided to seize the opportunity to toss her pebble. 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. Employees were able to purchase a Valentine's Day card for $1 and include a personal message on the back to let their fellow employees know they are appreciated.
