Today I am truly humbled by my bank. I have always been a big supporter of First National Bank. Their bank fees are low, their service is incredible and their online community is very helpful. But today they have blown me out of the water.
It all started when I made a donation this morning of 14 pairs of shoes to the BobsForGood foundation. It’s an incredible charity, set up and run by Bob Skinstad, to give shoes to under-privileged children. Incredibly, there are more than 7 million children in South Africa who have never owned their own shoes.
After my donation, I decided to challenge First National Bank to match my donation. Here’s my tweet:
A while later, this is the response I got from Michael Jordaan, the CEO of First National Bank:
Unbelievable! Who ever said twitter was useless? Ha! This is such an amazing opportunity to see the lives of 2300 (plus my 14) lives changed! I am incredibly excited. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think that this would happen!
Well done to everyone at First National Bank – from one very humbled client.
