It's hard to describe what it's like here in the Forever Companies headquarters at this time of year. Our Customer Care department is buzzing with people placing last minute orders, our goldsmiths, artisans and production people are working late into the night and weekends creating beautiful jewelry, and our shipping department is packaging as fast as they can.
All of this is against a backdrop of what is basically a Christmas Wonderland. Every year we have a departmental decorating contest and this year everyone went all out. There are Christmas lights everywhere, hundreds of paper snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, and our marketing department has been transformed into Dr. Seuss's Whoville
Our Forever Artisans custom design studio won the decorating contest this year. They have a snow machine in their area. Seriously. It actually blows snow in the air.
So basically it's Santa's Workshop. With bling.
During the holiday season is when it's really plain what a special business we are in. Simply put, we are in the business of creating "moments of joy".
This year, thousands of people, all over the world, will open thoughtfully conceived, beautifully made, and carefully packaged gifts that we here at Forever Companies have created for you. Wedding engagements will be made, anniversaries will be celebrated, and love will be shown, all with the products that we have touched with our hearts and hands. I can't think of a more wonderful business to be in.
All of that is possible because of the faith, confidence and responsibility our amazing customers, now over 300,000 strong, have put in us as a company.
Everyone of us here at Forever Companies thanks you for that trust and faith, and we understand how important it is for us to make every one of those Moments of Joy as perfect as it possibly can be.
So, from the deepest part of my heart, I wish you all the happiness, love and joy you could possibly desire during this wonderful Holiday Season. May your travels be safe and your time with family and friends blessed, and, may your heart be merry during this very special time!
Gary LaCourt, Founder and CEO, Forever Companies
