Hi there, I thought I’d take a minute to give you an update. As you know, here at DreamBank we believe in accountability with regards to how we run our business. With that in mind, we wanted to let our Dreamers know how things have been going with regards to raising funds for our 6 charity partners for the first six months (July ’08-Dec ‘08) we’ve been in live beta.
Since we’re so shiny and new we (and our charity partners) expected that we wouldn’t be generating enough revenue to net them some big contributions (quite yet). Meanwhile, we are growing every month and building momentum that will increase our ability to generate charity funds. As a gesture of goodwill and things to come, and on behalf of our Dreamers, Contributors and DreamBank, we made a corporate contribution to each of our 6 partners at the end of 2008. The contribution wasn’t tied to revenue (and was more than what our revenue would have allowed us to offer) but rather was as a symbol of appreciation for both our charity partner’s great work, and their support and vision for where we are headed. These are very early days here and we are excited about the potential DreamBank has to both provide a great service, and raise money for these great causes. We’ll be releasing more detailed information about contributions after the end of our first year in operations. Look for it in August or September ‘09!
Until then, tell all your friends– “If you don’t ask, you don’t get”. We need your help in spreading the word that it’s not only o.k. to ask for what you really want; it’s actually good (for planet, you and the charities). Thanks for your early support and keep dreaming!
