On This Day: International Day of Awesomeness

International Day of AwesomeBesides the fact that we celebrate our awesomeness at DCP every day, March 10th is a day reserved for everyone else to celebrate awesomeness.  Celebrate however you prefer – bake a cake, throw a party, or just be your same old, awesome, self!  The idea for the holiday stems from the belief that people do awesome things every day that go unnoticed.  Take a moment to recognize someone, or something, that is awesome.  No need to waste your celebration on us.  We’ll be celebrating our awesomeness every other day of the year!
