Bringing the Holiday Spirit to our Clients and the Community

by AH for Masha Halpern

Our annual Holiday “Party with a Purpose” had a new theme this year, “Come Chill with Us Before It Gets ‘Chili’!” This was a great opportunity for us to tell our current & past clients how much they are appreciated and to allow us to work together to give back to our community.

We shared good food, enjoyed awesome conversations, and spent time with so many of our favorite people!

 

On top of it all we gave our clients over 60 pies at our "Come Chill with Masha Before It Gets “Chili” Party 2019 & made a difference for our community writing holiday cards to our local Veterans, donating food & toys for kids and dogs & kitties ( Thank you to TABLE and Independent Animal Rescue for hanging out with us )!!!!.

 

Our “Party with a Purpose” was definitely full of Purpose this year.  While we gathered together to enjoy a fabulous Chili Bar, our clients joined us in giving back to our community. 

Thanks to everyone for your generosity! 

  • We delivered a huge stack of your handwritten thank yous & coloring sheets to veterans at the VA Hospital in Durham & lifted a lot of spirits!! 
  • We collected 185 boxes/cans of food & $63 for TABLE, our local organization to help feed school children.
  • We collected lots of pet food & monetary donations for  Independent Animal Rescue.
     

One of our favorite things about this party is the opportunity to introduce so many of you to each other!!  Being able to help foster connections is a bonus and one that I want to keep growing. If you have a service, run a business, or would like to start a group (something fun or something serious) let me know. Please think of me as a “connector”! I’m pleased to continue to be a referral source for you.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR RAFFLE DRAWING WINNER!!!!!…..Anne Marie Schneider! We are glad you could join in on the festivities and hope that you and your family enjoy all the holiday treats in your gift basket !

A VERY special thank you to Sunshine Scoville of Scoville Photography for capturing the essence of our event with her gorgeous photos. Enjoy photos & video of the event below.

We want to thank each and every one of you for coming to YOUR party and allowing us to express our gratitude for your friendship and business!  We are honored to give back to our clients.  Thank you so much for your continued friendship and supporting Masha with your referrals to friends and family.

Keep an eye out for upcoming Ambassador and VIP client appreciation events in February and Spring of 2020!

Five Pieces of Tech to Make Your Home Smarter

by KW for Masha Halpern

Five Pieces of Tech to Make Your Home Smarter

New home automation technologies pop up each year. Here are five pieces of currently trending tech that can make your home a little smarter:

 
1) Video doorbells.

See who is at your door, whether you're inside or halfway around the globe. In addition to cameras, these doorbells offer two-way communication, so you can tell that deliveryman to leave your package by the door.

2) Smart speakers.

These Wi-Fi-enabled speakers not only let you queue up your favorite jams on demand, but many also come with smart assistants, like Amazon's Alexa, Google's Assistant or Apple's Siri. 

3) Smart lighting.

Thanks to special lightbulbs and switches, you can turn lamps, overhead fixtures or exterior lights on with a simple voice command.

4) Smart fridges.

Ever been to the grocery store and forgotten if you needed eggs? With smart refrigerators, you can get a virtual peek inside your fridge from anywhere, so you'll always know exactly what you have on hand.

5) Smart security.

Instead of outsourcing your home's security, smart security systems allow you to take the DIY route with sleek sensors, battery backup systems and command centers that allow you to monitor your home 24/7 wherever you are.
