Helping Hands Stories (Part 2)

Here are the rest of our stories from WamBam Fence’s first Helping Hands Program!

 

Andrew:

“I took the money and, adding some of my own to it, bought groceries. I donated the groceries to Cooperative Christian Ministries in Concord, NC. They help families and homeless that are in need.”

Chris:

“I donated my money to The Prevent Cancer Foundation. I’ve lost two grandparents to cancer, and The Prevent Cancer Foundation has become my charity of choice since losing them. They’re a charity that focuses on improving technology for prevention and early detection of cancers.”

Linda:

“I have a neighbor and friend in need.  She made a comment that she and her son have a game to see if they can only spend $50 a week on groceries and smiled because they were successful.  Broke my heart.  She cried when I gave her the check.  I also gave her a gift card to the grocery store and a few gifts for the kids.”

Paul:

“A friend of mine told me about a charity where you can donate money to local military families in need. I donated the money to a local Military family of 6. I added some of my own money to help them out.  I wanted to give them a nice Christmas.”

Helping Hands Stories (Part 1)

Last week we told the story of our new Helping Hands program. Our employees did some great things with the money they donated, and we’ll be telling those stories in this post as well as one other post next week!

 

Karen: 

“Our helping hands money was donated to an associate of my husband, who he has worked with for a few years.  He was struggling with a lot of bills due to personal issues and was concerned about not being able to provide Christmas gifts for his children. He was blown away with the gesture and extremely thankful for generosity.”

Tonya:

“I donated the money to the Joe Martin ALS Organization.  It is a local charity in Charlotte that helps families and patients that have been affected by ALS. Specifically, I asked that the money donated be used towards “Joe’s Camp”.  During my mom’s struggle with ALS, the Joe Martin Foundation provided critical caregiving, financial support, and equipment to my mom and our family.  I was ecstatic to be able to give back to them and show them how grateful I was for all that they did for my mom and our family in our time of need.”

Kevin:

“Mine when straight to my church. Every year they do a huge “Giving to Christ at Christmas” offering.  This goes above and beyond our typical weekly offering.  Every penny that is donated goes directly into the local community to support food banks, Christian mission partners and aiding people in paying bills who suddenly find that they can’t.  Some of it also goes toward our worldwide mission partners which fully funds an orphanage in Argentina, halfway houses in the Philippines for girls rescued from sex trafficking and churches being planted in India.  The main goal is to help the “least and the lost” of the world…children.”

WamBam Fence’s “Helping Hands” Program!

WamBam Fence is a company that likes to help out those in need, and with 2017 being such a great year for the company, we knew we had to give something back. During one of our team lunches, the idea arose to take the money the company was going to donate to a charity and do something more personal with it.  We asked each employee, “Is there someone you know that can benefit from a donation?  It could be a family, friend or a special charity that you believe in.  We will split the donation equally among all of you and you can donate it in your name”.  Our employees at WamBam are some of the most caring individuals we know, and they loved the idea!  So, we weren’t surprised at the level of thought and excitement they put into the program. The best part was that the employees got to see how their donation helped people in need.  Some employees even added their own money to the donation to help even further! Over the next few weeks, we will be posting the stories of these donations to this blog, so stay tuned for the stories of WamBam Fence’s first “Helping Hands” Program!

The 2017 WamBam/Zippity Photo Contests have begun!

Every year our customers send us pictures of their beautiful WamBam and Zippity fences, often installed by their own hands, and every year we post their photos to our Facebook pages to show off their hard work, and to give them a chance to win prizes! We’re very excited to announce that 2017’s contests are officially underway, and if you have an active Facebook account you can participate by voting for your favorite entries in each line! This year’s contests are our biggest yet with over 75 total entries between our two product lines, WamBam and Zippity! Between the two lines, you can see installations not just of fencing but of mailbox posts, privacy screens, shower kits, and more! One of our favorite things about these contests is seeing the creative “outside-of-the-box” ways in which people use their products, and this year doesn’t disappoint! Both contests end on Friday, January 26th, and the winners are determined by popular vote. You can submit your votes by simply “liking” the photo you want to vote for. There is no limit to the number of photos you can like, so show as much love as you’d like! The top 3 photos from each contest will win the following cash prizes:

1st Place: $500

2nd Place: $250

3rd Place: $100

So if you want to see some great fencing and more installed by homeowners all over the country, check out our Facebook pages and vote for your favorite! And remember to check out our full product lines for WamBam Fence and Zippity Outdoor Products and you may be one of next year’s winners!
