What was your favorite present somebody bought for you 10 years ago?
Two years ago?
(Need a minute to think about it?)
Who was your best friend 10 years ago?
Who is someone who helped you through a difficult time?
Who is someone who comes to mind when you hear the words “just a really cool person”?
(See where this is going?)
We sent you an email a couple weeks ago with a fill-in-the-blank writing prompt.
The prompt was:
"I could really use __________."
An overwhelming amount of responses contained one of these two answers:
"...someone to talk to" or "...a friend"
This week you're likely about to receive a wave of sales promotions and emails for the holiday season (ours included), our challenge to you is to pause before you purchase.Whoever you're shopping for, is it possible that a phone call or a lunch meetup could mean a whole lot more than another gift card?
