As the unofficial custodian of the Lunchsense Facebook page, I’ve decided we should make a push this month to reach 250 (FB) “likes.”
“Why?” you might ask. Why should I bravely endeavor to persuade complete strangers to become new friends?
The answer is simple—“It’s what we’re all about.”
Certainly, new “customers” are nice, but consider the Lunchsense mission:
to change the way people THINK about (and pack and carry) LUNCH.
Sure, we want you to contemplate the benefits of our box, but first, we’d just like to get you to consider what’s inside. We want to invite you to re-evaluate the possibilities of this under-appreciated, “brown-bag” meal. In the interest of your health and well-being, it strives to be a much larger part of your life. And, it’s eager to be shared.
We rarely get a chance to have lunch with family members during a busy work-week, but that doesn’t mean we can’t cultivate “family” wherever we are. Relationships develop over shared bites in lunchrooms, cafés or at picnic tables every day. A noontime respite is the perfect opportunity to share rants & raves and to formulate like-mindedness. It’s a communal exercise—when we collectively stop grinding for a moment, and grab some grub with our mates.
It connects us with our community.
Do you eat at the same place every day? With the same people? Alone? Indoors, or out?
This simple practice, nourishing ourselves, improves the quality of our lives if we let it.
We want to spread the word—“lunch!” Hopefully, becoming more well-liked on Facebook will enable us to enrich a larger community. AND, if we reach our goal—250 “likes” by March 31, 2011—Nancy will offer $5 shipping to everyone for the month of April (2011)!
Please visit our page this month, and invite your Facebook friends to do the same, as we attempt to build our group of enlightened grubbers one lunchbox, and one lunch-break at a time.
