Aloha wonderful members! Welcome to this week on the community, which I'm actually very excited about writing this week!


Community Updates

  • This week saw some huge changes with Queued Goodybags being back on the agenda! To queue, simply buy a second goodybag and it will automatically add to your account :smileyhappy: We're getting some confirmation of questions asked surrounding this and will be updating the knowledge base articles this week. 
  • Alex assured our members about the health of giffgaff.
  • ...and posted his guilty pleasures blog! What is it about men and cheese? Is that a global thing of your gender? 
  • Timo posted an update on Nanogaff. 
  • ... and shared his 'bug out bag/survival tips' - got any you could add? 
  • Gregg asked for your feedback on Educator Introductions. This is still open if you want to contribute. 
  • ... and updated you on changes to our charity nominations.  "After seeing feedback and ensuring we give all members the chance to nominate/change nominations, we have decided to exclude previous winners from the nominations."


The best 5 a day article of the week

 In the week we posted this new film by Pixar - it is beautiful and I recommend viewing the full one:


A favourite song from our spotify this week

Played this in the office on Friday - got a few looks... 15 years later the lyrics just aren't the same. 


Member Shout-Outs

Finally - Us Educators get paid to talk to you lovely lot all week, what a treat - and we get to share in so many brillliant life experiences; new jobs, new babies, birthdays, marriages, test results, etc etc. What we'd like to do is start mentioning a few of these in our 'Week that Was' blogs sharing your good times, or rallying support for a members who are having a little trouble and need some love. We'll pick these out from our PMs and conversations we have/see during the week - but if you want to PM us with any news from yourself, or ask us to shout out for a friend who you know needs a smile - feel free!
