Did you expect this post would detail how we raised our Series ‘B’? Wrong. Then at least it must be about the Signpost Super Bowl ad, right? While it would be one way to spend our latest round within 2:30 minutes, it’s not. Instead we want to share that Signpost has put heads (and chins and cheeks) together to use our growing team, dedication and competitive culture for a noble cause.
For the past weeks the masculine part of our team has been living ‘Manuary’. Manuary is our male equivalent of January in which we pause our daily practice of shaving and use this time to promote and fundraise for a local, non-profit charity organization. This year we’re raising awareness of mental health issues and donating 100% of the proceeds to The Mental Health Association of Morris County.
We’ve seen an overwhelming response from Signpost employees in our New York, Austin, and Denver offices as well as from our network of sponsors: in less than a week of our launch, the campaign received more than 125 donations totaling over $5,000, quickly surpassing the $3,000 fundraising goal.
We just passed the $9,000 mark with 5 days to go. We ask you to review our campaign and please help us and MHAMC go beyond $10,000. Our Manuary has been a success already and we can’t wait to repeat this again next year!
UPDATE: We ended the Manuary campaign with around $11,000 to donate to MHAMC and great additional exposure for this cause in the Daily Record and NorthJersey.com publications. Thank you everyone that has been part of this from growing beards to donating to sharing.
