Every Door Has a Story to Tell

Boyden & Youngblutt

When you pass by the houses in your neighborhood, do you ever stop and think about the people who are living there and the hardships they might be facing? This was the inspiration behind our holiday card this year, which encourages people to get out and help their neighbors in need. This time around, we took it a step further and got our hands dirty — pulling weeds, mowing and cleaning gutters for a woman who needed just a little help getting by. Our advent-style card reminded our friends and partners that every door has a story to tell — all you have to do is listen.
