The Magic Bullet
One of the first things I did when I got to Milwaukee was put up an office wish list. This way, people who stop into our field office can see what we need and are encouraged donate any extra supplies that they may have lying around. Our wish list has things like computer paper, rubber bands, and food for volunteers.
Nick and Matt wanted me to add the "Magic Bullet" to our wish list. They explained that the Magic Bullet is an all purpose blender that would allow us to make things like smoothies and salsa. Since we practically live in this office, how could I say no to such a useful tool?
Throughout the past few months, volunteers have donated some well-needed supplies, such as tape, highlighters, and staples, but I never expected anyone to actually bring in a magic bullet -- until today.
Last week, two of our star volunteers -- Jenna and Amanda (both students from Alverno College) -- copied down our wishlist so they could bring it back to their dorm to see what they had lying around. Today, they actually came in with a Magic Bullet. But what's even more incredible is that they used their student food-cards to buy food for our volunteers.
