FirstBank + Carbondale: Giving for Good

Over the past few months FirstBank has had the pleasure to be the presenting sponsor of First Fridays Carbondale. Building on the time they have had to mingle with, and learn about their new home, they are excited to announce “Giving For Good,” a community outreach program that partners with two of Carbondale’s well-respected organizations.

Giving for Good:

Here’s how it’ll work. For the entire month of September, visit the Carbondale Creamery and Café (assuming this is already a daily routine… it is for them). For every latte or cupcake purchased, FirstBank will donate $5 to Ascendigo Autism Services, up to $5,000. We recommend ordering both, double the impact, double the flavor.

A little about Ascendigo:

This Carbondale-based nonprofit is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Ascendigo provides opportunities for growth and independence for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Ascendigo’s mission is to elevate the spectrum by empowering people, inspiring lives and shattering expectations. The organization provides opportunities for recreation and adventure in the outdoors, skills development and coaching, vocational and residential support and in-home behavioral therapy for individuals with ASD. 

Join FirstBank in supporting these wonderful organizations. So the next time you’re washing down a homemade cupcake with a latte, don’t sweat the calories. Find comfort in knowing you’re contributing to a nonprofit devoted to empowering individuals with autism to live a life with dignity, purpose, and respect.

FirstBank believes this is the beginning of a lasting bond between FirstBank and Carbondale, a town that embodies their philosophy of ‘banking for good’ for their customers, communities, and employees.

By October of this year, FirstBank will be making their debut in the Town of Carbondale, Colo. In what marks their seventh year in the Roaring Fork Valley, this will be FirstBank’s third branch, adding to the Glenwood Springs and Aspen locations. Located in the heart of Carbondale (791 HWY 133), they look forward to continuing their relationship with the amazing folks of this uniquely beautiful community.

Repost: ONE NEED NOT practice yoga to appreciate the deity Lakshmi, who sits with peaceful strength in a small alcove at True Nature Healing Arts in Carbondale. ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠LAKSHMI seems comforting, perplexing, inspiring – a woman turned quietly inward while also responding powerfully to the outer world. ⁠⁠⁠⁠“Lakshmi is the Goddess of good fortune, fertility, prosperity, and joy,” Deva Shantay, co-creator of TNHA shares. “Her name means to know and understand your purpose.” ⁠⁠⁠⁠As it happens, each of the six women we feature in this year’s Mothers’ Day tribute spoke of Lakshmi without naming Her. For She embodies the owl’s ability to work and prevail in confusing times. She brings balance. Spiritual and material; activity and stillness. ⁠It is a gift of True Nature that we found ourselves seeing these qualities in each of the women featured this year in MOUNTAIN PARENT's Annual Mother's Day Tribute: ⁠⁠⁠⁠Deva Shantay of True Nature Healing ArtsGail Schwartz of Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley⁠⁠Bella Collier of Legacy Dance CompanyErin Cuseo of Erin's Acres FarmJillian Livingston of Aspen Real LifeKathleen Wanatowicz of PR Studio CO⁠⁠Each, a leader in her field. Each, raising children while giving birth to her own purpose. ⁠⁠⁠⁠Each was photographed for our MOMPRENEUR Mother's Day Tribute at True Nature Healing Arts by portrait artist Sarah Kuhn. ⁠⁠Imagine the tranquility of an already-serene place. Imagine slowing down and breathing. Being present in conversation with women whom we invited, one-at-a-time, such as it is. We heard of their ideas, their concerns, their children, their plans.⁠⁠⁠⁠In our MOMPRENEUR series that follows, we will share their stories in their own words. We surely felt the presence of the Goddess. She sat still and listened and so did we.⁠⁠______________________________________________________Thank you Mountain Parent Magazine for spotlighting women in our valley who have done what they can to bring the community together and help others while also raising their own children.⁠⁠#celebratedwomen#celebratingmoms#womenempoweringwomen #mompreneur#mothersdaytributr#tributetomoms#goddessvibes ...
