Oh, sorry, are you still here? I thought you might have fallen asleep, as I almost did. YAWN!
I recently went to a SpeakeasyDC event, and I was so thrilled to see the titles they assigned to their giving levels. Creative, related to the work that they do, and FUN, which reflects the fun spirit of the organization! Their donor levels are:
- Bringing Down the House
- Encore Performance
- Standing Ovation
- Hootin' & Hollerin'
- Whistles & Cheers
- Enthusiastic Applause
OK, I know that their mission statement sounds all serious and academic and stuff, but their storytelling events are REALLY fun! Some of my best laughs and most memorable experiences in DC.
As another example of their creativity - at the end of the event, they presented their outgoing chairperson with a thank you gift for her service. It was a T-shirt, with the organization's name on one side and "I'm Kind Of A Big Deal" on the other side. Love it!
Kuddos to SpeakeasyDC! You should check them out!
