A BIG thank you to all of you for helping make giffgaff payback a huge success - we have just finished the biggest ever Payback. In total, Members have received over £1.85m, that’s an amazing £750,000 more than the last Payback, in June 2012.
Comparing this to the very first Payback, where we gave back a humble £27,000 shows how hard you have all worked to make this a success. The first full year we paid back £155,000 to our members, this year, we will be giving back a just under £3m (combining the June and Nov Payback). So a huge thank you for your hard work in recruiting new members as well as helping members in the community.
Some of you decided to donate your money to this year’s selected charities- Teenage cancer trust and Air Ambulance Association . Did you know that the first charity vote had only 5 votes-this Payback around 13k of you participated. The new voting process seems to have been a great success, so thanks for everyone who took part. The charity pot has also grown, the first payback w the Community donated £700, this Payback Members donated £15.5k. As giffgaff match Member donations the total raised this year was £31k.
As many of you already know, giffgaff means ‘mutual benefit’. Which means as you help us grow, the amount of Payback grows, a win/win. In the very first Payback the top earner managed to earn £654, a far cry from the what the top earners earn today. A special thanks to Uzzy, who retained his top spot, despite being at University.
Once again a huge thank you to all of you who have helped giffgaff, we hope you enjoy your payback.
