News & Opinion: Mystery Box Success

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 5:42 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

We would like to extend a very special thank you to everyone who was kind enough to take part in the Mystery Box sale to benefit Room to Read. Due to the overwhelming response, we have raised just over $3500 for a great charity and mailed out close to 600 books in just over two weeks. Our bookshelves are empty, and we all have smiles on our faces from everyone showing such amazing support.
Needless to say; due to the lack of books to mail out, the Mystery Box offer is officially closed as of 5:00pm CST today. Thanks again!
