We are on cloud 9. Literally, Taylor is on an airplane. No but seriously folks the Wellies are totally humbled, honored and in utter shock that we were awarded $25,000 through United Way of Tarrant County’s KERNEL Live Pitch Competition and were the recipients of Fort Worth Weekly’s People’s Choice Awards. Like, what?! Congrats to our friends at Rosa es Rojo and Taste Project on their awesome wins as well. We will say it again – Fort Worth has the best, most uplifting and collaborative nonprofit vibe, hands down. Together for each other, together for good in the world, together makes us all better. #kernellive#united #welliewin #fortworthnonprofit #philanthropysharktank
