 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

P.S. Also! I made it on TFC (The Filipino Channel), the largest Filipino media and entertainment network in the world this week! I grew up watching this channel with my nanay (aka my grandma) almost everyday and when she saw it, she was so proud! :D

 

My grandma, my sisters, and I. My grandma was so proud and in disbelief that I was on TFC! :')

      Great read - thank you for the update! :D Too bad for my poor timing, I'd just ordered two planners a couple of hours before your e-mail arrived. :/ Will you do this again next year, so I will know to time my order better?
