Santina Haywood – the incredible Administrative Assistant/Receptionist at the Community Foundation – came to us with this equally incredible suggestion for promoting Valley Gives!
“I contacted Pitney Bowes, the company we rent our postage meter from. (They work directly with USPS.) I was inquiring about adding a custom graphic for Valley Gives onto our envelopes and found out that they are running a special this month. I thought this would be a good idea for some of the other non-profits or businesses who use this company because it’s FREE this month, a savings of about $80.
Organizations can add the Valley Gives logo (Download it here) or a QR code to all envelopes to remind their customers, vendors, donors, etc. to support them on 12.12.12. They need to contact the Pitney Bowes Sales department at 800-243-7824 or www.pb.com to get started.
Once again, it’s FREE for this month only.”
“I also tried to get them to change the color of the ink in the machines from red to green, but since USPS machines will only read the red and green ink is used for some other country… it’s a one woman campaign.”
