Good Morning Dale!!!
We received our order of buttons and thank you very much for your prompt response! These will be distributed locally to anyone who would like them. My boss will be putting up our Christmas message on our “bill board” out front in a couple of weeks. When he does so, I will take a picture and email it to you. I am putting a check in the mail today.We are very excited to be able to hand out these buttons as last year we received a wonderful response from everyone. We have had people actually search us out in an effort to obtain these buttons. Not only that, but it has opened up many conversations with like minded people, people who want to make their opinions known but did not have an avenue to do so.
In addition, I had the pleasure of passing on a supply of these buttons to one of our church elders with the idea that she would then pass them on to various individuals in our congregation. That did happened but there was an added benefit that she told me about. Unbeknownst to me, she was recovering from a stroke and her recovery was slow which caused her to experience a lot of depression and anxiety. She was dreading Christmas for various reasons such as not having the energy to undertake all the miscellaneous rituals, not physically being able to perform at her normal level, and she just didn’t feel up to all the festivities. She wore her button out in public and many people approached her and engaged her in conversation. These conversations were all about God, Jesus, and Christmas. The enthusiasm that these people displayed toward her and the statement being made by the button was enough to lift her depression and also presented the opportunity to witness (they to her and her to them). There is a ripple effect that is an added bonus. We learned of the above situation but I am sure there are many more that we never hear about.
I also want to tell you what happened last year to my boss. Every year for the last (10) or so years, he purchases at least (50) $50.00 gift certificates from Red Lobster which he hands out to friends, family, and business associates (that’s a total of at least $2,500.00 each year for the last 10 years or so…that is over $25,000.00 he has spent at their restaurant, not including the dinners he has purchased for himself). He went there last year with a friend and while the manager was filling out all the certificates, they had lunch. His waitress noticed his button and made a positive comment so he took his off his coat and gave it to her and she immediately pinned it on her uniform. When she returned with their lunch, she apologized to my boss and told him that management would not allow her to wear the button at work but she assured him that as soon as she left, she would put the button back on. As he is eating and thinking about this, my boss came to wonder why he was buying Christmas presents from a place that did not apparently believe in the celebration of Christmas. He got up and went to the bar area where the manager was still processing his (50) certificates and told him to stop, he decided not to buy the certificates. The manager initially thought he was kidding but my boss went on to explain that he did not want to support a business that did not support Christmas. The manager explained that the company stance was that they did not want to offend anyone. My boss told him that was odd as this company policy offended him. He then proceeded to tell the manager that only 13% of the population would actually be offended by the idea of Christmas so Red Lobster was willing to offend remaining 87% of the population in order to not offend the 13%. The manager apologized saying that this policy was set by upper management and there was nothing he could do about it. Consequently, Red Lobster will never benefit again from my boss’ Christmas purchases nor will they ever serve another meal to him, me, or any of the Christians we have relayed this information to. My boss ended up giving out $50.00 gas cards to our local gas station.
So, in closing, these buttons have opened up many doors, provided opportunity to witness, lifted spirits, and helped to “weed out” people or businesses that do not support the real meaning of Christmas. As I mentioned earlier, the ripple effect goes beyond our knowledge or awareness and I thank God for each life that has been touched. Thank you for all you have done to assist us in our “grass root” attempt to put Christ back onto Christmas!

I am sending you a photo of the display I made for my church to sell the “It’s OK to say Merry Christmas” buttons and magnets. I placed one box by each church door (6 boxes in all)
It was a pleasure talking to you. I hope to see the buttons all over the city some day.
Happy holidays! (just kidding)
A very MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family.
