PostNet Raises $55,000 for Charity through #PostNetMerrymakers Campaign
Achieved Fundraising Goal while Encouraging Acts of Kindness across the Country
February 29, 2016 // Franchising.com // DENVER – PostNet, the industry leader in providing customized print, marketing and shipping solutions for businesses and consumers, has achieved its goal of raising $55,000 for their charity partners, JDRF; The ALS Association; United Way; and ASPCA, through its #PostNetMerrymakers campaign.
Held throughout the month of December 2015, PostNet created the #PostNetMerrymakers campaign to raise funds and awareness for four meaningful charities, while encouraging acts of kindness across the country. PostNet locations across the country joined forces in this one-of-a-kind event to spread awareness for this philanthropic campaign by encouraging their customers to perform and share good deeds on social media using the campaign hashtag. For every share on social media, PostNet donated $3 to the charities. To encourage campaign participation, PostNet also gave away a $5,000 holiday shopping spree and donated an additional $5,000 to the winner’s choice of one of the four charities.
“PostNet is a purpose-driven organization that is passionate about giving back. It is instilled in our culture and our history,” says Rachel Reynolds, Director of Marketing at PostNet. “With support from our franchisees and customers, we were able to achieve our fundraising goal and are overjoyed to know what a positive impact this will have on these charities.”
