And just like that, we’re off! #ZURBWired 2016 has begun, and our teams couldn’t be more pumped! In addition to the ZURB team, we’re joined by our chosen nonprofit, Life Services Alternatives, and a several volunteers. It’s a our ninth go round, and the atmosphere is absolutely electric! We’re committed to helping LSA pull off a marketing miracle and raise the funds needed so they can purchase their 12th home.
First things first, breakfast! Our amazing ops team led by Shawna, a.k.a. “Mama ZURB” made sure we had a selection of cereals, fruits and donuts to start off our day. As an added bonus, our good friends at Philz Coffee hooked us up with some of their delicious brew to keep us caffeinated! With breakfast out of the way, we began Wired the way we always do, with a Friday15-esque activity led by Jon. Sharpies in hand, we were asked to draw our vision for what the LSA’s next home would be like. The results ranged from inspiring to completely wacky!
- Kevin C’s house was actually a huge treehouse!
- Daniel’s kitchen had an assortment of Jelly bean dispensers
- Shawna’s house had cats in it (no surprise)
- Mandi’s house was a combo Victorian/Flank Lloyd Wright design
With the creative juices beginning to flow, we broke out into our teams for the morning’s brainstorming sessions. One hour down, 23 to go!
