Downtown Milwaukee
Refuge Smoothie Cafe & Milwaukee Downtown
2328 N Farewell Ave

OnMilwaukee.com is proud to partner with Refuge Smoothie Cafe and Milwaukee Downtown to bring you #MEETMKE during Downtown Employee Appreciation Week on July 28. We will introduce you to leaders throughout Milwaukee from all walks of life. Name tags for #MEETMKE will be distributed the week leading up to Downtown Employee Appreciation Week and we hope you will be a part of it. Say hi to your Downtown neighbor and get to know those around you. For every name tag worn on July 28, new #Meetmke tweet or mentioned on Facebook, Refuge Smoothie Cafe will donate a $1 to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin (up to $5,000). Be a part of your community!

The WHY:
We hope to bring a positive energy to the employees of downtown Milwaukee by encouraging them to smile, say hello, and possibly even go as far as meeting a stranger. Social interaction and networking can not only brighten someones day it can also lead to a new customer or connection that could generate income for the person or business. Through this refuge ripple we hope to bring Milwaukee just a little bit closer :)

Ways of participating:
Secure a name tag 1 of 4 ways: by requesting a certain amount from one of our partners, at a Refuge smoothie cafe, See a downtown Milwaukee public ambassador, or at one of the 3 Downtown employee appreciation week events on 7/28/14

  • Wearing a name tag indicates that you are open to say hello to a stranger and participate in our Refuge Ripple.
  • On 7/28/14 any mention of #MeetMKE on twitter or FB will result in $1 to the Make a wish foundation donated by Refuge smoothie cafe. Pictures or stories of how and who you met are strongly encouraged.
  • Positive message bracelets will also be available at all 3 Downtown employee appreciation week events. There is no cost for them we just ask for a donation that goes straight to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin.
