So, contrary to popular belief, the Lansing Ninjas have not gone into retirement. We … um, we were taking ninja finals. Right. That’s it. And we passed. So, yeah for us! We now return you to your regularly schedule missions.
Recently, we had two different people bestow upon us some amazing piles of gift cards/gift certificates. The wonderful people at The Nuthouse Sports Grill and a messenger in the former of #lovelansing champ Julie Powers passed along some goodies for us to ninja around town. I took my allotment today and set out about leaving some cool finds for people on a very hot day.
- $10 gift certificate from The Nuthouse
- $15 gift certificate from the Soup Spoon Cafe
- $10 gift card from Pet Supplies Plus
- $25 gift card to Darden Restaurants which, locally include Red Lobster and Olive Garden
- And, from my ninja toolkit, 4 round-trip CATA bus passes
I had several worthy attempts fall through, including ones that would have gone to sanitation workers and postal carriers on this awfully hot day. I’m hoping I’ll be able to catch up with some of those good people another day. Or you could. And you could tell us about those missions. We love guest ninjas.
UPDATE: I’m thrilled to report we heard back from one of the gift card recipients, and boy did that card wind up in the right hands! Shortly after I returned from this mission, an MSU student friended us on Facebook. She reported that she’d just finished donating her first gallon of blood, and she returned to her car to find the $25 dining gift card! Way to go, Erin!
