Celebrating LOVE Throughout the Year

Part of our philosophy is the idea that doing well starts with doing good. We find that social impact can be a source of inspiration and a motivational force in our work and beyond. To us, financial support is only one aspect of social responsibility. For that reason, our company giving program includes initiatives around Leadership, Opportunity, Volunteerism and Education. We call it (add)love.

This Valentine’s Day, we’d like to express our love and gratitude to all of our friends and client partners. Instead of sending a cupid sing-o-gram to each of your offices, we organized some little acts of kindness with you in mind.

As a part of our (add)love initiative, we spent a few hours at Baker Street Rue, a local cafe, buying our neighbors a cup of coffee (check out some of the footage in the video above).

We also recruited Joedega, a Providence-based coffee truck, to accompany us to the Hasbro headquarters this morning, where we celebrated their big move to downtown Providence by treating employees, neighbors and friends to a cup of coffee.

It is our hope that little acts, like Cups of Kindness, will warm hearts and inspire folks to pass on the good will. Please join us in spreading positivity and adding some love to the lives of others today (and every day).

Cups of Kindness is only the first of many 2013 (add)love efforts, so follow us on Twitter & Facebook to keep up to date on our other (add)love initiatives.

In 2012, we added quite a bit of love both locally and nationally. Below, you’ll see a list of organizations that touched our hearts in a special way. We supported them through donations as well as in-kind contributions like time and talent.
