+---Topic: Cast Member Appreciation Awards started by WebTink

This thread started out over in the Disney Fan Art forum as several of us were discussing our homemade Disney craft projects. One of the gals, Maggie, has a great graphic for creating Cast Member Appreciation Awards. After WebTink (hey, that's me) created some cards, she asked:
"Now, tell me some great reasons to give them out. I know there are a lot of nice CMs, but what would you consider 'award-worthy' behavior?"
I'm so glad you're enjoying my ideas! I don't give out the *certificates* very freely myself, but I am *disabled* due to 3 back surgeries, and when a CM goes out of her way to help me find a spot for the parades or get onto a ride (I have been known to be *ignored*), or help me look for a pin or other merchandise (not something that's in plain sight), then I feel he/she deserves a little something *extra* for their trouble. I've also been known to add one in a Mousekeeping envelope when something extra nice has been done in our room, like a *Welcome Home* card, *Anniversary or Birthday* card, towel animals, aaaand, our room is especially kept clean! I also do some charity work for the Give Kids The World Village (connected to Make A Wish), so whenever we go, I ask Mousekeeping for some extra soaps and shampoos for the kids. I've been lucky...they usually give me a bag full! So naturally, that person gets one, too! One night when we went to 'Ohana's for dinner they lost our P.S., but a wonderful CM made sure we got in in less than 10 minutes instead of having to wait 2 hours! Needless to say...she received a certificate! Another time I observed a CM helping a child trying to decide which pin to trade. The poor little thing had no idea what to do and his parents were new to pin trading. The CM not only traded a lovely pin, but gave the little boy an extra one! Last month I left a birthday package for a little girl who was turning 5 the next day. Not only did the CM see to it that it was delivered, but added 5 balloons! She got one, too!

Love the new mouse-eared Tiki, Rich! But don't change my Minnie Lei!

I wouldn't think of messing with it, Becky!
As a matter of fact, that's why when Tikiman suggested a more appropriate flower on the lei, I made the new version as an addition rather than a replacement to the original, more colorful style.
