 What We've Been Up To: Giving Back

I know it has been such a looooong time since I’ve sat down and typed out an update for you all on what we’ve been up to.

Every Thanksgiving, I find myself in a very contemplative mood, thinking about who and what I am most thankful for - and of course I thought of you all. The thousands of people, who although don’t know me or my team personally, believe in this product and its ability to change someone's life. So thank you for your support, love, and sharing how this planner has changed your life with my team and I everyday.

Why Do We Give Back?

I’ve said this before, and I will say it again - a huge reason why I started this company was to give people a tool I wish someone gave me when I was feeling lost.

I realize that I’ve been blessed with so much in such a short amount of time that I try my best to give back to my community and make a positive impact in the world in the best way that I can. The past four months have been filled with doing just that.

To date, we’ve given more than 117,461 planners to non-profits, community organizations, and schools all across the nation!!! That's $4,580,979 worth of planners! WOOOO, that's a lot of giving!

How We've Given Back So Far!

For the second year in a row, we’ve given Passion Planners to all 3,100 students and teachers at my alma mater, Otay Ranch High School! This is me giving a presentation to some seniors at ORHS. :)

We launched our Free Planners for Students campaign, where we sent more than 26,000 planners to classrooms all across the nation! Here is less than half of of those planners heading out to their new homes! :)

  • We held two giveaways here in San Diego and handed out 3,500 planners!

We flew from coast to coast to hand out a total of 33,000 planners at UCLA, UCSD and NYU during their welcome weeks!

  • We gave 2,000 planners to all teachers and staff within the Sweetwater Union High School District here in SD!
  • We sponsored Rady Children’s Hospital Fundraiser event and handed out 500 planners! 
  • In addition to this, we've given to more than 600 different non-profits ranging from non-profits that help women and men struggling with domestic abuse, to the management teams of animal shelters all around the country! 

Other than giving, we celebrated our 3 year anniversary!

According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. So hitting this benchmark is HUGE!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for believing in this dream and giving us the opportunity to help more people, together.

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones! <3

Hey #PashFam!

Well, hello there...
Well, hello there...

First thing's first...

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Kickstarter campaign, Passion Planner: Be the Change.

We believe that students will change the world.

Passion Planner will help students find confidence in themselves so that they can cultivate the strength to build a better tomorrow.

We dream of a world where every student has a Passion Planner, even if they can't afford it.

So we're putting our money where our mouth is.

We will be giving 3 planners to students for every planner sold through this campaign.

We feel in our hearts that the Kickstarter community is filled with people who share our mission and want to be the change they want to see in the world.

Let's do this!

Oh... and one more thing!

With this Kickstarter, we are excited to welcome TWO NEW LIMITED EDITION planners for the Academic calendar (August 2016 to August 2017)!

Now introducing... (Drum roll, please!)

Get One, Give One Kickstarter + #stayGOALden Limited Edition

To our amazing backers,

The success of our company has always revolved around giving.

From day one, we have offered the PDF for anyone to use for free, then we launched our Pay-it-Forward program, a program that allows people pay a planner forward to a stranger in need at half the cost, and we've given thousands of Passion Planners to non-profits all around the country. But we want to do more. 

Now, on our two year anniversary, Passion Planner is taking one of our biggest steps forward. Today, through Kickstarter, we are becoming a Get-1-Give-1 Company. 

We are excited to announce we will be transitioning into a Get 1, Give 1 company through Kickstarter

Every time you purchase a Passion Planner, we will be giving one to someone in need. When you invest in yourself, you will also be investing in the dreams of someone else. 

In celebration, we will be releasing the very first limited edition of Passion Planner - the “‪#‎stayGOALden‬” edition, designed by one of our very own members of the Passion Planner community.

Launching Passion Planner Academic on Kickstarter: Create Your Own Lesson Plan For Life + Early Bird Specials! + NEW Pay-It-Forward Program + Behind The Scenes of Making a Kickstarter (Photos)!

88 likes

To our amazing backers,

First off, THANK YOU!

We know that we've had our growing pains and we are so grateful for you having our backs through it all (see what we did there? ;) ).

We learned a lot and have had many milestones since you last heard from us, including:

  • Our staff is now 35 strong! All incoming emails are answered within one business day and new planner orders are shipped within 1 to 2 days. Woohoo!
  • We've also been featured in HUGE media outlets such as Washington Post, Metro New York and Entrepreneur.com.


And without further ado our BIG announcement that we want YOU to be the first to know as our loyal supporters:

Passion Planner Academic is here and we're launching it on Kickstarter!

You asked for it, so we made it happen!

Why do we want to do an academic version?

We believe that Passion Planner could be very beneficial to the academic community:

  • Time management skills
  • Work, personal and school life balance
  • Accountability in meeting set goals
  • Provides structure in an unstructured world

We are set to launch this coming Thursday (aka TOMORROW!), May 21, 2014 at 12 pm PST!

So mark your Passion Planners so you can be the first to take advantage of the limited number of special prices! :O

Why another Kickstarter, you ask?

Along with the Academic Version, we are launching a new program called the Passion Planner: Pay it Forward Program. We believe that Kickstarter is the ideal platform for  this, specifically, because we want to put it in front of a group of people who are willing to help one another - and what better than the Kickstarter community?! We will be doing something that no one has ever done before, kind of like our own social experiment.

Why are you doing this Pay It Forward Program and how does it work?

We understand that not everyone can afford a planner, so we made the full PDF of the planner available.

With that said, we wanted to take it a step further this time around. The Pay It Forward Program will give people an opportunity to help and connect with one another.

How it works:

1) Someone who can't afford a planner signs a pledge to become a potential recipient

2) A sponsor buys a planner at a discounted price for a recipient

3) A Recipient gets a planner with their sponsors name & email in it

4) The recipient sends a thank you letter at the beginning and end of the year to their sponsor

5) Finally, the recipient is encouraged to pay-it-forward and become a future sponsor

We believe in this program so much that we will match the first 500 sponsorships AND cover all shipping costs for this program!

We hope you all are excited as we are for what’s to come. We will now leave you with EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes pictures from the making of the Passion Planner Academic Kickstarter Campaign :)
