Giving Back Time

Andrew Kordek

When Morgan and I started Trendline more than four years ago, we wanted to create a company driven by passion.  Passion for email.  Passion for customer success.  Passion for collaborative learning.  Passion for both professional and personal development. And finally, passion for giving back.

For the last several years, I have been involved in many different organizations dedicated to giving back to the community, and I found that giving my time was far more fulfilling than just donating money. At the beginning of this year, I challenged a group within Trendline to come up with a way for our distributed workforce to give back within their respective communities.  This group consisted of individuals in each of our three offices, and the opportunity had to be one in which groups could take part in volunteering activities during the week without interrupting service to our clients. (you know…email marketing is 24/7/365)

I am proud to announce that the groups came through with flying colors, and below you will see pictures from the Austin, Portland and Chicago events.  Our Austin event, which took place in late October at the Austin Community Food Bank, took place over two days.  They packed over 4,300 meals for area families in need, and the pictures tell a great story.  Our Chicago event was held in early November at Feed My Starving Children, and we were able to pack 15,984 meals for children in Nicaragua.  In Portland, the team worked at the Oregon Food bank, and were able to pack over 23,400 meals for those in need.

I wake up every day honored to have such smart, caring and truly wonderful people working at Trendline Interactive. These give-back days are truly special events, and we cannot be more proud of everyone who took the time to take part.
