Oh, the people we meet in Starbucks

A Few days ago, Tiffany and I were sitting in a Starbucks in Naperville, IL and a man came up to us and said, “So tell me about what you guys do?” as he pointed to the Nuru van parked outside.

At first, we both wondered how he knew we were with the van and then realized that we both have Nuru stickers on our laptops. We told him briefly about Nuru and he stopped us and told us that he had someone he wanted us to meet. He proceeded to then set up a meeting with the missions’ director at a local church.

About an hour later, a woman came up to us and asked about Nuru. She told us that her daughter has hopes of working for a non-profit organization in the future. She seemed very pleased to hear about the work that Nuru is doing and that it aligns with her daughters aspirations. And then she asked for some print materials to pass along to her daughter and some other people that she thought might be interested.

These are just a few conversations we have had with people in the past couple of days, but I cannot tell you how many times people have asked us about Nuru in coffee shops just because he each have a Nuru sticker on our laptops.

If you want to spread the word about Nuru, I would suggest putting a Nuru sticker on your laptop and going to your favorite coffee shop; I promise, eventually someone will ask you about it. Granted we are probably in coffee shops working on our laptops more than the average person, but I think it can work for anyone.
