So much to be thankful for, even in 2020

So much to be thankful for, even in 2020

November 17, 2020


At GOEX, we choose to see the good in this unpredictable world. We’re thankful for the many things in our lives that keep us sustained and bring us joy. Below, some of our team members share what they’re grateful for this year! 


“I am thankful this season for so many little things. I am thankful for coffee and heated blankets as the weather gets cold. I am thankful for FaceTime and Zoom to keep in touch with friends and family in the middle of a pandemic. I am thankful for sunny days and that I have been able to keep most of my plants alive. Finally, I am thankful that this year brought me to my husband who has quickly become the best part of my life.”  


Carly Moore | Sales Manager


“I’m grateful for new beginnings in the midst of difficult times in the world. I am grateful for a new job with GOEX and the work we are doing. I am grateful for a new place to call home, a healthy family (and myself), amazing friends and my best gal, my dog Evie.”


Jen Parlin | Sales Manager


“I think it’s important to think about what we are thankful for even in a year full of challenges and difficulty amongst ourselves and the world beyond! I am grateful for activism this year, seeing people stand up for each other even as times are tough. I am grateful for the health and safety of myself, my friends and my family. I am grateful for new beginnings and the people who have stuck with me through it all! I’m also beyond grateful for a family who is loving, caring and always there for me.”


Maris Moon | Warehouse Assistant


“2020 has been an interesting year. My husband and I are thankful that we were both able to keep our jobs and work from home. We have enjoyed the extra time together and I have become even more of a homebody. But I have also learned to appreciate and cherish time with friends and family even more. I am so thankful for the loving people in my life. Lastly, I am thankful that we were able to update our kitchen this year! Now I just wish we could host a big party, hopefully one day!”


Kenna Russell | Graphic Artist


“I always feel thankful for my family, but this year even more so. Being locked together for so long reminded me of how much family time we had lost through our hustle and bustle of sports, work etc. We now make more time for each other. Dinners together, game night, etc. I am also very thankful to have found GOEX during the pandemic after being furloughed, then let go. It was a very dark and scary time for me personally.  Not only do I love my new job, the people I work with are incredible!”


Allison Carson | Sales Manager


“I’m grateful that in a year filled with uncertainty and fear my husband and I have been blessed with employers who make it their first priority to take care of us instead of only focusing on their bottom line.”


Meghann Wheelock | GOEX Product Management Coordinator


“At GOEX, we are immensely grateful for the community of givers and customers who have made it possible to keep going in a tough year. Every shirt we get to print or ship is a reason to celebrate. I am grateful for an amazing team who has kept a positive attitude, navigated a ton of challenges and kept us rolling. Personally, I am incredibly grateful because I have a miracle nephew who was born this year at only 26 weeks, weighing less than one pound. He’s home now with my sister and doing great – off of oxygen and eating well and, so far, getting a clean bill of health. He’s a precious reminder that we’re not in control regardless of how hard we try and that, even in this wild year, we have much to be thankful for!”
