This week’s theme is cool stuff going on around us. I hope it sparks your imagination like it did mine and that you find ways to apply those sparks to your business:

  • We’re getting closer to teleporting. Right now we’ve got “holoportation.” What, you haven’t heard about this yet?
  • Have you joined the metaverse? Do you want to? Do you know what I’m talking about?
  • Brainwashing is bad, right? Not according to this article from Boston University’s “Back2BU.” Our brains apparently wash themselves while we sleep. It’s a good thing…check it out.

Do Good Spotlight: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALFS)

One of DBE’s employees suggested we showcase Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, and we thought that was a great idea. We learned that when Alex was 4 (she was diagnosed with childhood cancer just before her 1st birthday), she wanted to set up a lemonade stand and use the money she earned to help doctors find a cure. Her first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand,”  raised $2,000 in one day. She continued to grow the program with the help of an amazing community of supporters. When she passed away at the age of 8 — her stand and inspiration had raised more than $1 million. ALSF was started by her parents in 2005 to continue the work that Alex began. Their mission is simple: to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. We are inspired by Alex’s story and donated to a local in memory of Ronald Hogas. Here’s where you can learn more and support a wonderful cause.

That’s it for now–short and sweet. Stay strong, stay focused, and stay well. Have a great rest of the week!
