We’re perpetually honored by the generosity and whole heartedness of our customers, alongside the design community as a whole. In recent memory, the Kill the Spill campaign (in conjunction with MetaLab, SquareSpace and WooThemes) raised more than $21,000 towards wildlife rescue in the Gulf. Authentic Jobs’ charity:water hit a similar target with help from their friends. Now, one of our resellers has set their sight on a positive goal – raising money towards cancer research.
In the last week, we’ve been speaking to Nick Aitken from The Studio at Grayrock about their pledge to donate 5% of all proceeds from ‘She’s Got Mail‘ to the Canadian Cancer Society. In regards to what motivated him to raise funds for this cause, Nick explains:
“The Studio at Grayrock website and all of our collateral feature tributes to a dear friend and colleague who lost her battle with Cancer in 2008. Each of us here has lost friends, family and colleagues to Cancer and this year was especially tough on us. This site and project is dedicated to them.”
As someone who has personally had family members affected by the big “C”, I’m touched by the generosity of spirit on display by The Studio at Grayrock. Given a little time and talent, The Studio’s work shows that we can all do our bit to give a little something back.
Many thanks to Nick and the team at The Studio at Grayrock for walking us through their rebrand and charitable work, plus for being unbelievably awesome.
