Founders Series: Part Three - People Power

Let me start this latest installment of the Founders Series by stating something I think is rather obvious: People are awesome. Of course, there are times in our lives where doubt may be cast over this statement; but, on the whole, I hope all of us are reminded of the genuine goodness of humanity far more often than the contrary. I know I certainly am, most recently just last week...


I was compelled to write this post (and put it as part of the Founder Series) because I simply could not ignore the selfless generosity displayed by two awesome individuals, each of whom wanted nothing more than to help us advance the Helium mission. With them by our side, as a company we've been able to spread the reading word to people and places that, to us, were previously inaccessible. Now, I won't go naming names, but, if you're reading this, you know who you are and we thank you.


What did they do that makes them so awesome? Alright, I won't bury the lead any longer...


Awesome Individual #1

Okay, so over last month or so, we'd been in talks with a local teacher who reached out to us about the possibility of sharing what we do at Helium with the parents of her (I'll divulge that detail) students. Amazing. She loved what we were doing to promote reading and wanted to help us get the word out to a younger crowd; a crowd at such an impressionable, malleable age in which reading is just about the best hobby they can attach themselves to for a mentally healthy future. Needless to say we were on board in whatever capacity she had in mind.
