TFMoran gets “Noses On” in support of Red Nose Day – May 24th

TFMoran staff got their “Noses On” in support of Red Nose Day on May 24th, 2018. Thanks to everyone who participated, taking a little time out of their busy day to help raise awareness to ending child poverty in the U.S. and around the globe. For $1, an official Red Nose can be purchased at your local Walgreens.  Half the money will be donated to one of the many charities Walgreens supports, such as Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Save the Children, and Feeding America. For a full list of charities and proud supporters, click here.

If you have not heard of Red Nose Day befor this, it was created by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning writer-director Richard Curtis (Love Actually) and has raised $1 billion globally since its launch 30 years ago in the U.K. in 1988. One of the major charities that influenced Red Nose Day is Comic Relief. Comic Relief is an organization that launched in 1985 to raise money to address poverty and social injustice throughout the world through the use of comedy and laughter. The event is held every two years as a U.K fundraising event, and it encourages people to wear a red nose and act silly to help raise money.

Nearly 1/3 of the world’s population, more than three billion people, have less than $2.50 to live on for one day. One billion children worldwide are living in poverty, and nearly 22,000 children die every day because of it.

Since beginning the campaign in 2015, Walgreens has helped raise awareness and donates to child poverty. They have helped raise over 100 million dollars and helped more than eight million children living in poverty.   $1 gives a child a nutritious meal, while $10 gives entire classroom textbooks. NBC will be broadcasting an all day campaign dedicated to the event that includes a special edition of American Ninja Warrior.

Thanks to NH Bureau of EMS, Bill Wood for the AED demonstration

TFMoran recently installed an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)* in our Bedford office. The AED life-saving medical device was purchased through the State of New Hampshire’s “AED Direct Purchase Opportunity”. On May 14th Bill Wood, Preparedness Coordinator for the NH Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, demonstrated to the staff how the device works, explained what to expect and answer any questions. Thank you Bill for taking the time to give us such a thorough explanation and demonstration!

Any New Hampshire business, organization or individual can purchase an AED through this state program. For more detailed information, click on this pdf link State of NH AED Information

* According to the American Heart Association , “An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly. If not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death.”

TFMoran Celebrates “Friday” with a TGIF Staff Party

On Friday, April 6th, TFMoran staff celebrated “Friday”, the end-of-the-work week, by taking a well-deserved break for a TGIF office party. Engineers, surveyors, landscape architects and office support and principals all gathered in the reception area to socialize while enjoying hot appetizers from TGI Fridays. The table was filled with chicken wings galore, along with potato skins, mozzarella sticks, out-of-this-world sliders and more – accompanied by the healthy choices of veggies and fruits of course! And, yes, there were cookies for a sweet ending.

The reception area was looking festive, decorated with approximately a zillion custom-designed TGIF! Friday signs, and metallic blue and gold balloons, thanks to receptionist Jenn Clark. The bright bouquet of yellow tulips and iris, arranged by Maryanne Murray, added to the festivities giving the party a dose of spring. However, looking outside was a different scene, snow was falling and sticking to the ground! No one seemed to mind, because, after all, it was Friday! As always, the dedicated, hard-working TFMoran staff appreciated the work break to catch up with co-workers, and a good time was had by all!
