So here is the annual charity report for Tribe. This year we tried something different. As many of you know we started our Keep the Change program when you check out. For those that do not know what this is we (Roy and I) pick a different charity (usually monthly but sometimes we keep it longer). If you as a customer want to help us support that charity you just tell us to "keep the change" and we will round up your purchase to the next whole dollar. The change is then used to support the charity and at the end of the month we add it up and figure out how much. In addition to this we also donated money to other things and gave a lot of product for silent actions and the like to help even more charities.
This year you guys raised $345.15 in small change and we donated another $1202.27 to Randy's Cancer Fund, The Austin Planetarium, American Red Cross, Boy Scouts, ACLU, St Judes, Austin Pets Alive, Conspire Theater, Project OUTYouth, Capital Area Food Bank.
In Product we donated some $21560.82 retail price. Athena Academy silent action to help a ill teacher pay bills, Rockin Tomato and Jump GYM did the same, auction to help raise money for Crohns, Summer Stock Austin, Give to Game, and of course the Heroes Alliance.
So in all we were able to give $23108.24 our best year yet. Here is hoping we can do more in 2013!
