In a stunning act of generosity, FloraCraft, a Michigan-based small business, gave out $4 million total in Christmas bonuses to its roughly 200 hard working employees.

“This idea has developed over the past year and is my way of saying ‘Thank you’ to our team for the role they have had in our success,” FloraCraft’s owner and Chairman Lee Schoenherr said in a press release, according to Michigan Live.

“My wife, Joan, and I are blessed in so many ways,” Schoenherr continued in his statement. We want to share these blessings with the men and women whose energy, passion and loyalty inspire us every day.”

The average worker at FloraCraft has been with the company for nearly a decade, with some being second- and third-generation employees. These employees will receive around $20,000 for their bonus, while those with a 40 year tenure or more are receiving a whopping $60,000.

FloraCraft’s CEO, Eric Erwin explained the breakdown of the bonuses. 25 percent of each bonus will be in the form of a cash payout, while the remaining 75 percent will be distributed in the form of a contribution to each employee’s 401(k) retirement account.

“[Schoenherr] wants to ensure our employees have resources available as immediate reward for their hard work, along with a nest that allows them to save, plan and prepare for their future security.”

“Our employees were beyond surprised – and deeply grateful of Mr. Schoenherr’s generosity,” Erwin said.

“It was very humbling,” said Mary Overla, one of the company’s assistant production supervisors. “I started crying – it was huge for him to do something like that for everybody.”

FloraCraft began as a small venture in 1946. Under Schoenherr’s leadership, and thanks largely to the work of its dedicated employees, the small Ludington-based company has become the world’s leader in foam products for the floral and craft industries.

“I’ve got one sole and overriding reason for doing this,” Schoenherr said to his employees in a video posted to Facebook. “And that’s to show you my appreciation for all the hard work and things that you do. It doesn’t go unnoticed.”

LGBTQ Activists Blitz Drew Brees Over Support Of ‘Bring Your Bible To School’ Program. His Response Is Perfect.

Classy response.

Published

on

LGBTQ activists, or more affectionately, the “alphabet people,” are once again up in a tizzy over a Christian doing what Christians do, supporting things Christians should support. This time the target of their rainbow tinted rage is New Orleans Saints superstar quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is a big supporter of a program that encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school. Brees has openly been a Christian for a long time, so his support of such a program is not at all a shock, but the perpetually offended folks in the homosexual community are nonetheless attacking him over it. Well, Brees has responded and it’s awesome. Here’s a video of Brees talking about his support of the program in question: https://youtu.be/qPFEyeug99g via TheBlaze: Deadspin ran the headline “Drew Brees appears in video for gay conversion therapy sickos, doesn’t understand what the big deal is,” for the story. Others on Twitter accused Brees of being a “bigot” and aligned with a “hateful group.” Brees responded to the online furor through a video on his Instagram trying to clear the air and saying that he was falsely smeared by a deceptive article on the story. https://twitter.com/Amie_Just/status/1169705243216666626 “What I did was I filmed a video recently that was encouraging kids to bring their Bibles to school for national Bring your Bible to School Day,” said Brees. “So I’m not sure why the negativity spread, or why people tried to rope me into certain negativity,” he added. “I do not support any groups that discriminate, or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality. OK? So hopefully that has set the record straight, and we can all move on, because that is not what I stand for.” Unfortunately, you can almost guarantee that such a statement is not at all going…

Pete Buttigieg Adds New Sin To God’s List; It’s A Real Eye Roller

This guy clearly never read the last few verses in the Bible.

Okay, so you know how the Bible, in the book of Revelation warns folks about adding to or taking away from the Bible, the Holy Written Word of God? Apparently, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has never read that portion of Scripture. During a town hall about climate change hosted on CNN, Buttigieg mentioned that skeptics of the science on this issue were committing a grave sin. Yes, that’s right, folks. Apparently the Eleventh Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Deny Climate Change.” Guess we missed that one on our first read through. via TheBlaze: “Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” said Buttigieg, an openly gay presidential candidate. “You know, if you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it ⁠— countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas ⁠— what do you suppose God thinks of that?” he asked rhetorically. “I bet He thinks it’s messed up,” Buttigieg answered. “And you don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this, because frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us,” he continued. https://youtu.be/gq7rwFPC3vU Buttigieg also brought up how not caring about climate change is also an issue of not loving your neighbor. “Not to mention taking care of our neighbor. Eventually it gets to the point where this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing, and more and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now,” Buttigieg said. You know what else God hates, Mr. Buttigieg? People who twist up the meaning of His Word and add their own manmade…
