"Take away my factories and my railroads, take away my ships and my money but leave me my people. And in a short time I will have it all back again." - Industrialist, Andrew Carnegie

In the last few weeks we have been lucky enough to reach some major milestones for DoGoodBuyUs. Not many of them would have been possible with the smart, wonderful and talented, Elise King.

One year ago today, Elise (now a Co-Founder) and I began a mission to change the world through what we buy. There have been ups and there have been downs but one major constant through the entire process has been Elise. Her work with our partners, causes and keeping the this place in order have been invaluable.

Without her, we could never have:
- Gained close to 300 partners
- Raised over $150,000
- Grown the team

We were introduced to each a few years back by a mutual friend who said, "She is the only person I have ever met who is more dedicated to giving back than you." He was right. 

Along with the amazing one year milestone of being at DoGoodBuyUs, July 7th was also her birthday. Please join me in wishing her the best on these glorious occasions!
