Dear Mr. Handyman Family Members,
With the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on our nation's eastern shore last week we have seen much devastation, destruction and personal loss. While our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with all citizens of our great country, we thought a "family" such as ours could band together to help one another even from a distance.
Over the next five days we are encouraging franchise owners to pledge support to our most affected Mr. Handyman businesses, largely in the NY/NJ area. Please pledge to donate funds in support of these franchises, and in particular their staff, who have been without work or pay. These businesses are dealing with many issues including job cancellations, technicians and CSR's that cannot travel to and from work because gas is unavailable, roads and bridges are closed, or they are dealing with the clean-up of their own residences. Our intent is to donate the pledged money to the Technicians and CSR's of our franchise owners to help defray the lost wages they incurred as a result of the storm.
To pledge, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Owner Name
- Owner Franchise #
- Amount You Pledge
The Home Office will EFT your pledge with a 30 days' notice.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 in the next five days and even more if we dig deep. Service Brands International will also be matching funds up to the $5,000 mark. So let's take a moment to consider all that we have and all that might have been lost by our friends and neighbors in the NY/NJ area and pledge our support. We will be updating the fundraising thermometer below daily until pledging closes.
Once we have closed the pledging on Friday, Nov. 9 we will communicate with the system as to our plans for distribution to those in need. One hundred percent of the funds will be dedicated to support of the owners/employees in need.
I thank you all in advance for your support, consideration and commitment to our extended Mr. Handyman family. I am sincerely proud to lead an organization of such amazing people.
