What We Honor We Increase

Here at Roosevelt's Terrariums we take 10% off 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 for everyone.

It's our "Crazy Ones Discount" and goes to all of the following people:

School teachers, healthcare workers, elder care and child caretakers, social service agents, police, fire & emergency first responders, active military personnel, veterans of war, pastors, rabbis and imams as well as all our elected political leaders and officials of any political party.

Thank you for what you do!

(However, you have to mention what you do before we ring you up.)

 Teachers change lives for the better.

 These people risk their lives in so many ways to save our lives in so many ways.

 "A Christian pastor, a Jewish rabbi and a Muslim Imam walk into a bar..."  Actually, this is no joke. These three religious leaders are all holding bricks to help build a community center. Sure the photo is a bit cheesy, but hey, it's still inspiring. Jesus taught us to love our enemy and love our neighbor as our self. That's not cheesy at all.

The word "honor" has its roots in the idea that something is "weighty" and therefore, to honor someone requires us to not take them "lightly," to stop taking them for granted. When we honor such people we do so with the intention of encouraging them to keep on doing whatever they are doing, and to inspire others by our gesture to follow their good example.

"What we honor we increase."

With this in mind, Roosevelt’s Terrariums has chosen to honor those people in our community for the important work they do to make our community a better place to live and raise a family.  It's just a 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.

We know that it’s your job, but you could have done so many other things that probably would pay you much more for doing and being something far less heroic.

So, if the list above includes you (or someone you are married to), please don’t be shy about it. Mention whatever it is that you do before we ring you up 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 for what you do. Please, keep up the good work. It is so important, and you really are making a difference. We honor you. May your kind increase.

— Gregg Harris, Owner & Proprietor of Roosevelt's Terrariums
