On Tuesday February 14, 2012, the subsidiaries of Filters Fast LLC (FiltersFast.com, W3 Project: Work and Walk for Water and Filters Fast Local Service) surprised the teachers and staff of Indian Trail Elementary School, in Indian Trail, North Carolina with “Thank You for Being My Valentine” gifts. The company treasures the importance of what our hardworking teachers and administrators contribute to the growth and development of our children. Often, these hardworking professionals do not hear or receive our gratitude for what they do five days out of the week.

This is a critical time where we find so many of our schools suffering for basic core necessities due to budget cuts for the fiscal year. Many teachers have to use their personal money to provide these basic and much needed items for their students. For Valentine’s Day, Filters Fast wanted to reach out and simply say thank you to the hard working professionals at Indian Trail Elementary School. We hope that at least for one day, we were able to put a smile on their faces and let them know how very special they are to our community and the educational system.

Filters Fast wants to extend a special thank you to the following staff members from Indian Trail Elementary School who were instrumental in helping us to pull off our Valentine’s Day surprise and for working with us to help them with upcoming projects to benefit the school:

Candice Boatright, Principal
Kelly Ransbottom, Bookkeeper
Allison Audet, Physical Education Teacher

The cold month of February is the perfect time for couples to cuddle up under blankets by the fire. Valentine’s Day also falls in February, so it is no stretch that this month is also known as Chocolate Lover’s Month. Even donut and coffee chain Dunkin’ Donuts is celebrating by introducing new donuts such as the Chocolate Chip Bagel Twist and Reverse Boston Kreme. Dunkin’ Donuts is also featuring heart shaped donuts for you and your sweetheart!

When it comes to chocolate, I usually prefer to eat it rather than drink it. However, every once in a while, a good cup of hot chocolate does just the trick. Nothing feels better than wrapping my hands around a warm cup of hot chocolate after being outside in the snow and wind. The following products will help get you that perfect cup every time:
