Acts of Charity
We here at GrabSlam.com started this company with the idea of bringing great games that may have missed the wave of public perception to you, the consumer, at a cheap price. But that’s not all the awesome that we had in mind. We also want to give back and show that we’re putting our money where our mouth is by giving back to those have a need. So to that end, from the outset, we’re committing 25% of our net revenue to charitable contributions.
“Now, wait a second,” you might say. “I’ve got a couple issues with that. First, who the heck are you giving money? And, second, net revenue? That sounds fishy.”
To which I would say, “those are pretty good questions. So let me answer them.”
In regards to the charity we’ve chosen Child’s Play. (www.childsplaycharity.org) This charity is near and dear to our hearts for a couple of reasons not the least of which is the support that local Children’s Hospitals have provided for family and friends. These hospitals are extraordinary in the level of care and diversity of services that they provide to children in need. We can’t express our gratitude for their expertise, courage, and compassion. In this small fashion we hope to support the institutions and the children that find their care there.
Now, to discuss the Net Revenue component. Needless to say, we’re a business and we have costs that we need to manage. Here, though, we promise to commit our funds and manage our business to fulfill this basic tenet: provide service for the greater community at large. Each year we will send a check to our chosen charity and post images of this transaction to demonstrate its resolution. There’s a bit of trust here on your part but I hope that you believe us when we say that we are committed to giving back.
Thanks again for your support and we hope that you’ll be able to join us in the excitement we have for this endeavor.
