“The purpose of the Give Back Greetings website is two-fold: to provide top-quality products to our customers and to help Schools and Nonprofits with their fundraising endeavors.”
We've been friends since we worked together in the early '90s. We are both parents of school-age children and have been involved in fundraising programs in our community – at the schools our children attend as well as our churches and local nonprofits.
Every year during the holidays, we create photo cards that we send to family and friends. A few years ago, Greg had a revelation… Why not combine the need for Schools and Nonprofits to fundraise with the personalized holiday cards most families order? Why not let Schools and Nonprofits capitalize on the ordinary shopping habits of parents? Susan and Greg teamed up once again, and Give Back Greetings was born.
In 2013, we launched our beta website with just about 100 holiday cards. Today, we offer thousands of cards spanning multiple categories, which enable customers to order all year long and provide Schools and Nonprofits the opportunity to raise money throughout the year. We've expanded from having one manufacturing facility in Philadelphia to multiple manufacturers strategically located throughout the United States. Customers receive their cards in three business days or less with UPS Ground. This makes our customers happy. Schools and Nonprofits are earning money by simply informing supporters about the Give Back Greetings program. This makes them happy. And Greg and Susan are happy to be working together again after more than 25 years, now giving back to our community – and yours – in ways we hadn't imagined years ago. It feels good. It feels right.
Thanks for listening to our story… and Happy Fundraising!
Susan Pink and Greg Braun
