Prototypez, Therapy Blocks and Battle Born believe 100 percent in community outreach, giving back and supporting other organizations. This weekend, we kicked off our many events that we are either sponsoring or supporting during the holidays. Saturday evening was the Festival of Trees and Lights for DSOSN. It was a beautiful, sparkly night to remember with friends and family. An impressive 5 course meal, dancing, auctions and TREE auctions! Our Prototypez interns put their skills to the test by creating the "Everything Elf" tree. With the help of teacher, Miss Alecia and Mentor, Britt they created a gorgeous tree that any family or business would be proud to have. The night was a huge success and we're always happy to be a part of anything that DSOSN does. Sunday, our interns treated their families and friends to a Thanksgiving dinner at Prototypez. They budgeted, shopped, cooked and served a traditional holiday meal complete with a variety of desserts that would make a bakery jealous! It was so nice to see so many come out and support them. The meal was made with traditional ingredients and fixings....but when you add how much heart and love went into the meal, it's irreplaceable. I was so proud to watch them work as a team, each one taking their own task so seriously and doing it with such pride. SO many of them have come so far! I'm so proud of each and every one of them!

We have some amazing events coming up! Our 2022 Charity Poker Tournament hosted by Harmony Home Loans will be December 17 @ 5pm. It will be at the beautiful Westgate resort! We're so thrilled about it and hope to see some of you there! Please use the contact form on our site to inquire about entering the tournament or possibly donating a sponsored gift to add to our auction! We'll have more information upcoming in the next few weeks! Have a beautiful and safe Thanksgiving week!

Our interns are so involved this year in various events and projects! We're so proud of them and everything they've accomplished. We've settled into our new location and are setting our sights on the upcoming holidays and 2023. The possibilities that lie ahead for our interns are endless.

During this time of year, please make sure to honor those who put everything on the line to preserve our freedoms. While we remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the American way of life, lets not forget about the Veterans that struggle daily with physical disabilities, PTSD, health and emotional problems and ALWAYS remember that they need our support and understanding. Not just on Veterans Day, but every day. I read a beautiful quote that I will paraphrase here. The best way to thank a Veteran is to be the type of American worth fighting for.

New exciting announcements coming soon, we are growing and with that will be some amazing things to watch out for!

SO many new faces and exciting new things to learn! Our interns, both teens and young adults, created their first fictional companies with the theme being Lemonade. We went through the process of choosing interns to fill each position, creating the ads, naming their business, shooting a commercial, figuring out the cost and expenses, promotion, etc. WOW! Talk about a crash course in being in the workplace. Each intern took their chosen positions very seriously and made sure they learned what each job would include and did it to the best of their ability. We're so proud of the teamwork and cooperation we've watched in each classroom. So many more lessons are being learned in addition to workplace skills and that's exactly what our goal is for Prototypez.
