It’s been awhile since we made a long-winded update about how things for us have been. The delay in updates is a testament to how insanely busy things have been for us. The year of COVID has created so much uncertainty for the world. And as someone who has become accustomed to planning out every single aspect of our lives as well as our business, you can imagine how frustrating in has been. But it’s always at the forefront of my mind that no matter how dire our personal situations may be, at any given time, there is someone else in the world who is struggling more than we are...
I’m reminded of a set of memes that have floated around, both poignant and highly relatable as we reflect on this past year:
We are all in the same boat. We are not all in the same storm. For some people it's sprinkling. This is a break. It's a breather. It's a rest. It's a pause. A time to reconnect with their families. Honestly, it's kind of peaceful. For some it's a storm. It's a bit scary. It's disruptive. It's enough to make you stay up and watch the news in worry. For some, it's a damn hurricane. It's tearing at boards. It's pulling off roofs. It's washing them out to sea. It's dark and unknown. It's life changing.
It's not wrong to enjoy a sprinkle or enduring a storm. But please don't negate the difference. Rest with your family. But don't minimize the hurricane engulfing your neighbor. Laugh at a meme, but get on your hands and knees for your friends. Get in someone else's storm.
But we are not all in the same boat. We are in the same storm. Some have yachts, some have canoes, and some are drowning! The sooner we all realize that not all of us are on a level playing field, the sooner we’ll get to experience a vision of what our country, and the world as a whole, can truly be.
We long for the day when we can return to “normal,” but I for one always go into every situation with the end game being better than we started. To quote the great Jonathan Larson, “the opposite of war isn’t peace, it’s creation!” But much like life, creation is easier for some than it is for others...
Bubble Gum Day helps raise money for schools and the charities they support. Students donate 50 cents to be able to chew bubble gum in class on Bubble Gum Day.
Long before any substantial chewing gum formed bubbles, ancient human beings chewed bits of resin from trees. All around the world, people collected substances from the available trees and used them for dental care and general enjoyment.
It wasn’t until 1928 after decades of failure by those before him, and several of his own, that Walter Diemer created the first bubble producing gum. His employer, the Fleer Chewing Gum Company, marketed it as “Dubble Bubble”.
The largest bubble gum bubble ever blown was 50.8 centimeters (20 inches) in diameter. Chad Fell of Haleyville, Alabama blew the bubble with three pieces of Dubble Bubble on April 24, 2004 at Double Springs High School in Winston County, Alabama.
Grab your quarters and bubble gum! It’s time to chew some gum, blow bubbles and raise some money for a good cause.
OverSoyed Fine Organic Products will donate $.50 from everyone product sold from our Bubble Gum Day collection to Donors Choose, which supports local schools and teachers with much needed funding for classroom projects.
