As 2016 comes to a close we fulfilled our pledge to donate to JDRF as part of our annual customer survey. For each survey sent we pledged $2.50 and promised another $2.50 for each completed survey. In total more than 400 responded which, along with the more than 2000 sends, totaled $6,430. Although the onset of winter weather forced us inside we welcomed the JDRF Greater Missouri and Southern Illinois Chapter Executive Director, Chris Martinez, to our location in St. Louis to commemorate the donation.
Chris had this to say:
Thank you for responding to the Paulo customer survey. Your feedback is not only invaluable in helping Paulo provide exceptional customer service but because of your responses, Paulo was able to contribute more than $6,000 dollars to JDRF. Your time and the simple act of filling out the survey brings us one step closer to a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). In our region alone, your response helps:
- Provide funding for 50 clinical trials of potential T1D therapies.
- Send nearly 375 Bags of Hope and Care Kits regional children & adults diagnosed with T1D each year.
- Support advances in technology like insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors.
- Ultimately find a cure for T1D for everyone living with this disease.
On behalf of JDRF, Thank you.
Our annual survey is an important part of upholding our commitment to helping our customers succeed, and provides actionable feedback that we use to improve. Paulo would like to thank all of our customers who participated in the survey for their feedback and for helping us support JDRF.
