As many of you already know, we just launched our bars on all domestic United Airlines flights! For $2.99 you can now purchase a 2-bar box which includes Apple Pecan and Cherry Almond– and also give 2 meals to children in need…all from the comfort of your seat in the sky!
Moreover, we started receiving emails, text messages and comments from friends, family and strangers like this one:
Great speaking with you a moment ago and definitely looking forward to reconnecting back in the Bay.
Quick story: I purchased 2 Degrees bars on my United flight over to Boston, and was proudly carrying the bar around all weekend. I’ve shown the package to many people, all of whom seem to be truly impressed with the nutritional content and ingredients. Just yesterday, I eventually ate one as I was really hungry, and it hit the spot. Then in true 2 Degrees spirit, I gave the other away to a hungry homeless man living on the street in Cambridge. The homeless man first looked directly at me with a huge smile, and said “God bless you, thank you so much.” Then, as I was walking away I overheard him say: “Wow, cool!” I looked back and he was reading the message on the packaging…Wanted to share this as I thought you’d appreciate hearing the 2 Degrees philosophy in action!
This type of message makes our whole team smile. It reinforces the reason that we do this work– that we’re in it for hungry kids all over the world, but also for anyone in a tough place…we do this to serve others–and enable you to do the same. We like to refer to folks like David as “2 Degrees people.” They believe in the mission of food for food, and serving others through their daily purchases. As we expand both our distribution and giving efforts around the world, we look to the future where every food company gives back. To help reach even more people, we’ll be launching new types of snack products in the coming year that we know you’ll love.
If you have stories of a time when you felt touched by giving or receiving, we would love to hear it! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, post on our Facebook page, Twitter, even to Instagram— we’re @2DegreesFood– and use hashtags #oneforone and #raisethebar.
Thank you all for your continued support of our team, products and mission. We look forward to feeding even more children with you, every day.
