We want to make sure every Ninja, employer, vendor, and media outlet is buzzing about our kick-ass, week-long celebration by doing a few simple things like sharing posts on social media and emailing A+ vendors. If you’re wondering, of course there’s a how-to guide (this is OfficeNinjas HQ you’re dealing with).

Because we’re big on appreciation, we’ll happily send you OfficeNinjas goodies to thank you for your time and energy. And the more you participate, the more treats we’ll send your way!
