Over the next couple of months, companies and their employees will be hitting beaches, theme parks, stadiums, and pavilions for their summer team events. Is your company one of them? Are you struggling to get excitement and participation for your event?

Months back, we surveyed a large group of our customers, and what they told us is that this was a major pain point: they just couldn’t get the enthusiasm for or attendance at their appreciation events. In response, we created an Idea Genie article with great tips on how to remedy the situation. Sound like something you could use? Read the article here!

This is a hot topic for summer, but we know you have more on your minds, too. In total, we created 10 Idea Genie articles to address your top workplace issues. Read about them all in this newsletter article.  

Now, go out there at create some summer team event fever!

Happy Independence Day from the 'ville!

One of my favorite holiday weekends is finally here! (and a bonus – three-day weekend)! Hopefully you can talk your boss into handing out our Freedom Passes to let you leave work a little early so you can get a jump start on the festivities!

I come from a family who's full of traditions, and ever since I can remember my grandpa will get up early to blare The Stars and Stripes Forever, every July 4th. Now if you are familiar with this John Philips Sousa classic, you know it just plays on and on! I am sure the neighbors love him for that! Once the music has played, the festivities can begin. The weekend is full of family, friends, food, fireworks and more.

Whatever this holiday weekend brings your way, enjoy!

Here are some interesting and fun facts I'm sharing with you in preparation for the Fourth!

• The "Star Spangled Banner" was written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812 and not decreed the official national anthem of the United States until 1931.
• To avoid cracking it, the Liberty Bell has not been rung since 1846. To mark the quintessential day, every fourth of July it is symbolically tapped 13 times.
• In July, 1776, the estimated number of people living in the newly independent nation was 2.5 million. According to the U.S. and World Population Clock, the nation's estimated population is 318.4 million!
• The average age of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence was 45. Benjamin Franklin was the oldest at age 70, and Edward Rutledge was the youngest at age 26.
• The percentage of American homes with an outdoor grill is 87 percent.
• Americans consume about 155 million hot dogs on Independence Day alone; it is the biggest hot dog holiday of the year.
• Benjamin Franklin proposed the turkey as the national bird, but was overruled by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who wanted the bald eagle.

Be sure to grab our reusable event cup, strike up the band and enjoy this holiday weekend!

Oh…and don't forget 275 new products launch on Monday!

Congratulations to our June Facebook Contest Winner!

June's Show Us What You've Got Facebook contest has come to an end. The winner of $500 in prizes is (drumroll please) Karla Navarro from DCFS of Nevada!

Karla entered her team with a heartwarming Facebook entry. She and her team give our Shout Outs™ to young adults in foster care so they can recognize and praise each other. They had a 2-day meeting with these young adults and the board was full of Shout Outs™ that they had written to each other; even the back was covered!

The point of this competition is not only to give some of our fans a chance to win some great prizes, but for us to see how our products are being used. This is something we haven't seen before, but we love the creativity and love that our products can be used for something so meaningful!

Now, for the fun part: what do they win? Karla's entry earned her team $250 in Baudville bucks to be used for more Shout Outs™ and gifts for the young adults in foster care to keep encouraging them to do great things. Karla and her team will also be receiving a $250 Target gift card to help them stock up on some supplies they need for the children at their organization!

Enjoy your Baudville swag and your Target gift card, Karla! We hope it helps keep the positive mojo flowing at DCFS! Congratulations and thank you for being a part of our competition!
