Happy Thanksgiving

For this week's post, I wanted to highlight how thankful I am for our customers.  Aside from the obvious business reasons, I am grateful for each of you because of the fun and unique relationship we've built over the years.  I look forward to continuing those relationships and building new ones with new people and entirely new organizations.  Working with nonprofits is its own special joy.  It's such a privilege to work with people whose purpose is to help others, whether through community service organizations, spiritual organizations, health services, education, animal welfare - the list goes on.  Know that you and your work are appreciated!  Happy Thanksgiving.
