How do YOU feel about win-wins? You probably love them. Am I right? What’s NOT to love about a win-win?

This week, because it is fall, because we had such a lovely time at the Where the Wild Things Are pre-screening (thanks, really, everyone for all your very kind words, my goodness I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a response!), because programs are rocking along so smoothly, because we have such marvelous interns, because our volunteer orientations are more full than ever before, because we’re feeling a little famous lately, what with Dave Eggers visiting last week and David Cross and Amber Tamblyn shopping in the Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair yesterday, wait … where was I going with this? Off track, apparently. All these things are true, however, what I WANT to tell you about today is:

This Thursday! Whole Foods Market has chosen us as the beneficiary for one of their Community Support Days, during which 5 percent of their total sales for the day goes to 826michigan. Cool, right? Join us, then, this Thursday, October 15, for our Community Support Day at Whole Foods Market! Simply go to the Cranbrook Whole Foods Market (that’s the one at the corner of Eisenhower and Ann Arbor-Saline Road) and grocery shop! A wonderful 5 percent of your purchase supports our free student programming!

I recommend stocking up on frozen foods, wines, and other things that you’ll need in the next few months that won’t go bad. Why not? It’s for a good cause! You: get groceries, which you probably need anyway; We: continue offering free tutoring, in-class support to teachers, field trips, publishing opportunities, workshops, and more; You: get to keep 826michigan alive and well in our community.

Come to think of it, it’s a win-win-win. Even better! Hope to see you there!
