Well, look at this, we went and got ourselves a blog and we thought the best way to start this thing off was with a heaping helping of GRATITUDE!
It’s that time of year! Leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping, and to-do lists seem to get longer and longer. Thanksgiving is almost here and Christmas is right around the corner! While, the holidays can be a bit stressful, even for the coolest Zen masters among us, we think the best way to fight the hectic holiday head-spin is to take a moment, take a breath, and meditate on everything we have to be grateful for. For us here at Portland Best Buds, that means recognizing how grateful we are to be here with the opportunity to connect with and serve you! We are grateful to have such a meaningful platform to learn, to grow, and to provide our community with a service that can truly change lives for the better, or at least put a smile on a few faces.
It’s been shown that gratitude can have genuine and long-lasting positive effects on our mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing, not to mention helping to promote and encourage that wellbeing in others!

Our team is seriously overflowing with gratitude right now and we want to take a moment, count our blessing and take action by dedicating the rest of 2018 to paying our thanks to YOU! For the remainder of November and all through December we will be working to show just how grateful we are to you and our amazing community by organizing and/or participating in some of the following:
• Gathering & donating food to the Oregon Food Bank during November to keep our neighbors fed & nourished
• Gathering & donating clothing to Transition Projects during December to keep our houseless neighbors warm & dry
• Gathering & donating Christmas toys for Portland Fire & Rescue Toy & Joy Makers to help spread joy to our youngest neighbors
• Offering some extra love to our current & future guests to spread a little extra joy to your wallets!
We know we can’t change the world overnight, but every little act of gratitude and kindness helps to shape our world a bit more for the better. We hope we can help bring the best out of the holiday season and want to encourage our Portland Best Buds family to do the same for the loved ones, friends and community members around them! We hope some of you will be able to join us in spreading the gratitude and love this holiday season and look forward to teaming up with you to bring some additional joy to our communities!
Wishing a safe and loving holiday to all!
Your Portland Best Buds!
