During my time in the Marine Corps, it was a big deal never to let one of our Marines spend Christmas alone. I’m instituting the same policy here with Team Cooper.
No one should be alone on Christmas Day. No one.
If you are planning on spending Christmas alone, please share your information at the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/oPcwpKp81aUEfPSr1
I or one of my motivated team members will call you on Christmas Day for a 5-10 minute very merry chat. If we can’t reach you because you’re out helping Santa, we’ll leave a message filled with enough holiday cheer to keep Rudolph’s nose glowing for decades.
Bottom line: We want to make sure you’re okay, and we wouldn’t mind getting to know you in the process 🙂
That’s all for now. Be on the lookout for a new release coming next week-ish…
