Trista and Ryan Sutter On Giving Back

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

 

Remember the duo you fell in love with back in 2003, Trista and Ryan Sutter? Of course you do.

Since their days on the Bachelorette, Trista and Ryan have been sitting snug next to each other on the rollercoaster ride that is life. One of the consistent challenges the Sutters face is dealing with Ryan’s commitment to working overnight shifts at his Colorado fire department. He has to tell his kids that he’ll be away from the home for a few days at a time, and he struggles knowing Trista will have to man everything on her own while he’s away.

Since the Sutters know just how hard working overnight shifts can be during the holiday season, they teamed up with Coffee-Mate and surprised some overnight-shift workers with holiday cheer and well-deserved presents! They captured the moments in a beautiful short film, Coffee-Mate Brings Home to the Night Shift.

Trista described filming the charitable video as a total “bonding experience” between her and Ryan. In addition to giving back and drawing attention to overnight workers, one of her favorite moments was sneaking up to the security guard’s desk, and leaving him his surprise envelope. Ryan loved it too, and he says, “It feels good to give back and it’s really fun to make other people feel good.”

This holiday season the Sutters will be decorating tons of Christmas cookies to show off to their German relatives on Facetime. Ryan wishes Santa would bring him the silver Airstream trailer featured in the Coffee-Mate video, and all Trista really wants is to be blessed with many joyful holidays to come. Her Christmas wish comes as no surprise, as Trista knows a lot about being thankful. If you need to learn a thing or two, check out her gratitude memoir, Happily Ever After: The Life-Changing Power of a Grateful Heart.

This holiday season, what will you do? It might not be the worst idea to grab your partner and dive into the community with a charitable heart. Giving back with your partner seems to work magic on both the community, and your relationship.

“I plan to do a lot of swimming and I want to enroll my son in official swimming lessons and get Sydney in the water,” Laila said. “I want to do a lot of outdoor activities, like take them to the beach. We haven’t really done that, because I wanted to wait until my son was old enough. You have to be careful with the kids and sand; I don’t want that situation where my daughter gets sand in her eyes. I want to take my son to the beach and do a lot of swimming, and maybe get him on the back of a bike. A lot of outdoor activities.”

Kimora Lee Simmons:

“This summer, everyone is working,” Kimora said. “I’m launching Shinto Clinical all over the world, Djimon is on-set filming, the girls have summer activities, Kenzo has a little camp he’s going to – but i know we’ll have fun. I honestly wouldn’t mind spending more time around the pool. Maybe grill out…that sounds fab to me!”
