It’s been almost a week since Chicago Soup and Teen Living Programs celebrated their $100K social media win from Chase bank and we’re still reeling in the craziness of it all. So much food and so many congratulations! What a great effort and campaign.
See pictures on Chicago Soup’s Facebook page. And please become a fan while you’re at it. Because then you’ll be the first to know about ways you can make an impact in your local community without much money, effort, or time.
On a personal note, thankyouthankyouthankyou to the following individuals who have donated their time, talents, and efforts to making Chicago Soup a reality (I’m estimating that over 500 hours have been donated to Chicago Soup):
Geoff – my new bao friend who has a bunch of fancy titles at Wow Bao/LEYE and apparently every single connection in the world
Nia – the easiest person ever to work with on a project and high-up gal at Teen Living Programs
Christine – the loveliest PR person I’ve ever had the pleasure of collaborating with at JP Morgan Chase Bank
Patrick – brilliant designer, project managing fiend and co-founder of C2 Creative Consulting
Derek – community strategist, new Canadian, and co-founder of Foodtree
Tim – video guy who can whip together great pieces and founder of Beyond the Pedway
It was great collaborating with such a talented team to make this all come together so nicely. So thank you from the very bottom of our mixing bowl.
I’m literally floored. In just a matter of 30 minutes and a handful of tweets, we were able to collectively donate $500 to the Red Cross Haiti relief effort today. Thank you to the following individuals who donated (and will be receiving 2 Dozen of our Favorites cupcakes as a result):
By the way, even if you didn’t get free cupcakes out of donating, it’s still always a good thing to do.
I’m always amazed at what a group of totally unrelated people can do together to make a difference. You guys all freaking rock. I’m so verklempt.
This morning, I tweeted that I felt like giving away cupcakes. Got a variety of responses. “Give me free cupcakes!” “I’ll take ‘em!” “Drop them off to my house!”
But this DM from Rick Murray was hands down a win-win:
D foiledcupcakes: I’ll buy a dozen cupcakes for the next five people to donate $100 to Haitian relief via the Red Cross. (email proof req’d)
D rickmurray: wow! i’ll throw in an additional dozen. so 2 dozen cupcakes to the next 5 people who donate $100 to haitian relief via red cross?
So there you have it. Donate $100 to the Haitian relief effort through the Red Cross. You’ll get 2 dozen cupcakes. Simple. Easy. Fun.
Forward your confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll touch base with you to work out all the details. You’ll get two free ”Dozen of our Favorites” (an assortment that we pick, but you’ll love!) delivered anytime, anywhere within our delivery region, in the next two weeks.
Use them for office meetings, parties at home, gifts, whatever. Just donate!
Don’t forget, you can also text “Haiti” to 90999 and donate that way if you’re not into cupcakes.
By the way, #rickrocks. Thank you, thank you, Rick Murray!
Where will you be on the night of November 5th? The Foiled team and I will be here:
We are so proud to sponsor Platform One Entertainment’s show benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Two of our own on the Foiled team have a direct connection with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, so you see why this charity means so much to us.
We’re so happy to have such passionate supporters of LLS; join us and get your tickets today. Help us support a great cause
See you there,
P.S. I am really excited to finally meet Amy (our order coordinator), her daughter Katie, and Jamie (one of our bakers). Oh, and I forgot to mention – the VIP section will have Foiled Cupcakes!
