Sesame Collective Thanks You for Your Help Supporting Our Community!
When a Community Bands Together…
2021 was a year of both challenges and triumphs, not just in our industry, but in our whole community. We wanted to take a moment to reflect and thank you for your ongoing love and support. You’ve not only supported us through this year with love and patience, but you have also given us the opportunity to give back by supporting our efforts with our charitable partners.
Friends of Trees – Yalla
One of our more recent campaigns is at Yalla. Order takeout and enjoy a Pastrami, Cauliflower or Short Rib Feast and for each one, we’ll contribute $5 to support Friends of Trees! This is a simple way to enjoy a delicious meal and ensure that our community stays green for years to come.
Love Burger – Bless Your Heart Burgers
Our most successful campaign to date! This collaboration with local creative agency Kamp Grizzly all started with a great idea from them to both give back to the community and collaborate on a delicious burger in the process! The top prize for our loyalty program is to name and design your own burger on our menu. Kamp Grizzly jumped at the chance to pledge the $5,000 to make it happen on the condition that all of the proceeds went to feed hungry Portlanders. On July 8th, in partnership with Portland Rescue Mission, Transition Projects, New Avenues for Youth, Feed the Mass and Neighborhood House, together, we fed hundreds of hungry Portlanders. The launch party for the Love Burger raised an additional $4,400 for Neighborhood House.
What’s our favorite part about this program? That we get to keep spreading the love! We pledged to donate $1 of each Love Burger made to continue our support for our friends at Neighborhood House. $1 adds up quickly when you’re talking about a delicious burger. You, yes you, have already raised an additional $3,500 to date! Come by anytime to order a Love Burger and bite into a great cause.
Other Ways to Give Back This Week!
Eat for Education – Yalla
Enjoy a meal in our dining room, on our patio, or order takeout every Monday this month and we’ll contribute 10% of sales to support local elementary education. Last week we partnered with Bridlemile. Tonight, order to support Capitol Hill and come back next Monday to spread the love to Mary Rieke Elementary.
Dine Out to Donate – M.E.C.
Dine in or order takeout from M.E.C. tomorrow, Tuesday January 25th, and we’ll contribute 10% of all sales from the evening to our friends at Transition Projects. They do amazing work helping Portlanders go ‘from homelessness to housing’.
