We're celebrating success & 'paying forward' to charity

Posted by: Rachel Davidson-Foster

Update: We handover the cheque...

Rachel & Steve, Junari present the donation to Melissa Collett, E.A.C.H

Today, 14th May, we visited the lovely fundraising team at E.A.C.H to handover our donation cheque and find out a little bit more about what the charity does.  It was lovely to meet Melissa and hear about the fantastic hard-work they do helping children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. It is a pleasure to be doing our small part to help this very worthwhile cause.

And the winner is.....

27th April saw the Essex Digital Awards 2014 event in Billericay and we had a lovely time soaking up the South-Essex atmosphere and enjoying amongst other things the “The Big Breakfast’s” comedian Mike McClean’s comedy set whilst we nervously awaited the results for the category we were nominated for.  Regrettably we didn't get the top award – our heartfelt congratulations go to online jewellery business Love Lily Rose (lovelilyrose.co.uk).  

BUT! Although we didn't win, we are not disappointed because we do get to announce a winner of our OWN – and that is the winner of our charity-draw to receive our one off donation. So, with drums rolling in the background, the winner is our LinkedIn follower John McNeil from Itron who nominated East Anglian Children's Hospices (E.A.C.H) as his charity of choice. Thank you John for your nomination and congratulations on being a winner this morning! 

We found ourselves a consolation award!
(we did put it back after the photo honest!)

Finally, and importantly, we wanted to say a profound "Thank You" to all our new LinkedIn followers who took the time to write such lovely messages of congratulations and wishes of good luck. Reading through your comments and your explanations of why your chosen charity meant so much to you has been lovely.  We really appreciate you doing that and we will definitely be thinking up new “excuses” to support charities in the future.

From the Junari Team - Thank You!

For those readers who aren't familiar with what the charity-scheme was, this is the previous blog post which explains the background and what our donation scheme was about:

As you may have seen from our previous blog-post on the subject, the Junari team are thrilled to have had our JunariCRM+ software product shortlisted as a finalist in the On Line Business Category of the Essex Digital Awards 2014. We hope to be selected as Medal winners at the awards ceremony next week on 24th April in Billericay.

Having heard the happy news we did the usual whoops of merriment and high fives (we may even have indulged in a little David Brent style dancing – but that would be telling) and then, once we’d all calmed down a bit, we got to thinking that we should pass on some of our good-fortune and “pay-forward” our success.

So, we’d like you to think of your favourite charity!

Have you got a cause that you hold dear and for whom you know a bit of extra money would help? Then you could get them at least a £100 donation from us!  All you have to do is:

  1. Go to the JunariCRM+ LinkedIn page and “Follow” us to qualify.
  2. Once you’ve clicked on the “follow” button simply leave us a comment on the page of your nominated charity's name. 

We will be doing the randomised draw on Friday 25th April to pick one lucky winner.  We’ll let you know if your name was chosen and if it is your charity that will receive the donation. We’ll also post the winner and the chosen charity on our page.
 
Gold Boost! – just to add to the celebratory mood; if we are successful enough on the night to win the Gold Medal for our award category then we will boost the donation up to a total of £250!
 
So, please act – visit our JunariCRM+ LinkedIn page now (or before end of business on 24th April 2014) and click on “Follow” to join in with our celebration party and give your chosen charity the chance of receiving at least £100 courtesy of JunariCRM+

                                   Will it be the JunariCRM+ team celebrating on the winners podium on 24th April? We hope so!
