A Nonprofit Perspective on Customer Appreciation
Over the past several Christmases my wife and I have taken up the practice of donating money in someone’s name as a Christmas gift. A couple organizations in particular set a fantastic example of customer appreciation and I want to highlight those for you.
Plant With Purpose (@PlantWPurpose)– Our donation to this organization was used to plant a garden in Oaxaca, Mexico and educates the farmers on sustainable farming methods. Plant With Purpose sent us a nice, hand signed thank you note shortly after we donated.
Mr Holland’s Opus Foundation (@HollandsOpusFdn)- Our donation to this foundation helps keep music education alive in schools. Shortly after donating, we received a phone call from someone at the Mr Holland’s Opus Foundation thanking us for our support.
In both cases, this personal touch of appreciation went a long way toward making us feel that by donating, we were partnering with these organizations to make a difference in our world. Thank you to these organizations to welcoming us to be a part of that!
