Dear Clients, Partners, and Friends,
As we bring 2016 to a successful close, I want to take a moment to thank our great team, our partners, and especially our clients—many of whom we have the great fortune to call friends. For many years, Red Privet has sent out holiday gift baskets to acknowledge our appreciation and thanks for the wonderful opportunities our clients and friends have presented to us. This year, however, we are going to change that tradition.
We know the holiday gift baskets were appreciated based on the many notes of thanks we received. But we also recognize that this small gift likely makes a minimal difference in the joy the recipients will receive this holiday, as almost all of us are truly blessed with warm homes, ample food, extra gifts, and loving families. Sadly, there are so many others who are not nearly as blessed. For them, even a token of hope and holiday spirit can make a meaningful difference in their life.
For that reason, we have decided that in lieu of sending gift baskets this year we will be making a donation to Toys for Tots in honor of our clients, colleagues and friends. We believe this contribution has the potential to bring more joy and happiness than all the chocolate truffles, spiced nuts, and gourmet crackers could ever provide. To all our great clients and friends, I hope you find this change in our giving to be a bigger, more meaningful gift to you as well.
I truly want to thank you all again for everything you have offered Red Privet and me personally. I hope you have a very happy holiday and a successful, peaceful new year!
Matt Hummel and the Red Privet Team.
