In honor of 29 years with the community we wanted to share 10 things you may not know about our team!
- Our Logo: Nefertiti was Queen of Egypt during the early 14th century B.C.E. She possessed legendary beauty. She is a timeless symbol of consummate beauty.
- What is a WM DayMaker? Simply put, it’s someone who makes your day. For us, it means to make a difference, whether it be brightening someone’s day, increasing their self-esteem or making them smile. It’s inspired by a book called; Life As a DayMaker by David Wagner. He believes that the world has more good than bad and that each of us has the ability to make the good bigger, while shrinking the bad. Kindness can inspire others, diffuse anger, bring hope, heal pain, and change the world
