Users collected $1.3k for gifts in July

Valentin Hinov @ValCanBuild

July was a really strong month for Thankbox.

It finally reached the point where people and companies that I don't know are using it (always exciting).

The big achievement in July, though, was that users used it to collect a total of $1.3k for gifts for Thankbox recipients! One of the biggest Thankboxes we had $240 in it! It's kind of scary to be entrusted with this money but it's so exciting to be facilitating people collecting for gifts for their friends and colleagues.

Now I just have to get my revenue to match that number 😂
