OPTIZMO™ Teams up to Grant Wishes with the Make-A-Wish Foundation
Supporting the community is built into the company’s culture
September 18, Austin, TX — OPTIZMO Technologies, the industry leader in email and SMS suppression list management, is excited to announce its support for the Make-A-Wish® Foundation.
A core aspect of our mission at OPTIZMO is to have a positive impact on our clients, partners, team members and communities. Over the years, OPTIZMO has provided support to a number of community and charitable organizations. In 2019, our team was thrilled to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation through the LTPA Lonestar Thunder Run in July. The event raised raised a total of $59k, which will allow Make-A-Wish Central and South Texas to grant 6 wishes to children facing critical illnesses.
“OPTIZMO has been and continues to be, extremely fortunate over the last decade. As we celebrate 10 years of momentum, it would be remiss not to acknowledge how we got here. We got here with help. Help from a dedicated team of employees, help from our industry peers and mentors, and surrounding ourselves with partners willing to share in their successes, to help us grow and continue to build.
This is what compels us at OPTIZMO Technologies, to share in our successes and pay forward what has been so graciously awarded us. Make-A-Wish is a foundation that goes above and beyond. They do so much for these young people, helping them to remain positive, encouraging them to continue fighting the good fight, and providing them with the resources, treatment, and experiences that foster healthy growth and recovery. We feel privileged to play a role in it in any way that we can!” said Khris Thayer, CEO and Co-Founder of OPTIZMO.
Following the event over the summer, OPTIZMO has been exploring a long-term relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, where we will provide ongoing support throughout the year. We’re excited to announce that this program will officially launch in 2020 when we will provide support to grant one wish per quarter during the year. Members of our team will also be involved in additional events 2019.
“I strongly feel that OPTIZMO’s ongoing partnership with the Make-A-Wish foundation and their pledge to grant 4 wishes in 2020 provides a great deal of insight into their company culture, as well as, into who they are as individuals.
On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the families who will benefit from this partnership, we would like to sincerely thank Khris Thayer and his team at OPTIZMO for their gracious past donations and their pledge for 2020!” said Kathrin Brewer, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas.
