The promise of summer and blue skies has us all in good spirits. As we reflect on everything we’re grateful for, there is nothing that comes to mind more than the chance we’ve had to work with our wonderful clients over the years. Your vision and dedication help so many people, and hearing your ideas and needs is invaluable to us.
Fifteen years ago, Anna and I founded Blue Sky Collaborative. Online peer to peer fundraising was new at the time; there was no name for it even. The first DIY/Peer to Peer fundraising platform we built in 2001 generated $6 million for ALS research thanks to a dedicated group of families.
We were blown away by the energy those supporters brought to championing their cause. We were determined to harness that same power to help other amazing nonprofits achieve their missions.
What a difference 15 years makes! Peer-to-Peer is now essential to fundraising and responsible for billions of dollars in online transactions each year. Your creativity, dedication, and vision drove so much of the Peer to Peer innovation over the years. We can’t wait to see what you imagine and set to achieve over the next 15 years!
Thanks for all you do, and especially for allowing Anna and I to support you. Please don’t hesitate to contact either of us for anything, at any time. It’s always a pleasure.
Syam and Anna
