"What we honor we increase."
Announcing "The Crazy Ones" Discount
Here at Roosevelt's Terrariums we take 10% off of every purchase made by those folks in our community who are just "crazy enough" to give so much of themselves to make Portland, Oregon a better place to live.
The word "honor" has its roots in the idea that something is "weighty." Therefore, to honor someone requires us to stop taking them "lightly," to stop taking them for granted. We honor such people with the intention of encouraging them to keep on doing what they are doing, and inspire others to follow their good example. What we honor we increase.
With this in mind, Roosevelt’s Terrariums chooses to honor certain people in our community for the important work that they do to make our community a better place to live and raise a family. It's just a small Courtesy Discount of 10% off any purchase. We call it our "Crazy Ones" Discount because it is for all those folks who are “just crazy enough” to be such good neighbors. That category includes:
- all school teachers (public, private or home school),
- all healthcare workers, elder care and child caretakers,
- all social service agents, police, fire, emergency first responders and military personnel,
- all pastors, rabbis, imams and other faithful and loving religious leaders
- and all our elected political officials of any party who bear so many insults in order to win and serve in their office.
We want to say thank you to all those who work so hard, laying down their lives in so many ways to help make our community a better place to live, work and raise a family.
Sure, we know that it’s your job, but hey, you could have done so many other things that would have payed you so much more for being far less heroic. (Please, don't get any ideas.)
So, if this list includes you (or someone you are married to), please don’t be shy about it. Tell us what it is that you do and allow us to take 10% off the price of whatever you purchase, every time, including tuition for our terrarium classes.
Once again, thank you. Please, keep up the good work. It is so important, and you really are making a difference. May your kind increase.
— Gregg Harris, Owner & Proprietor of Roosevelt's Terrariums
