Today, Wallit founders Mike Vien, Allyson Ray, and Chris Williams renewed their commitment to supporting community financial institutions and merchants during this difficult time and to keeping everyone in our community safe.
Dear Wallit Community,
The hearts of everyone here at Wallit go out to all those who have been affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The health and safety of our community, including customers, merchants, and employees, is our number one priority.
The last few days have been incredibly challenging and confusing for everyone. It’s our goal to be as proactive and transparent as possible.
First and foremost, we are going to get through this crisis as partners – our success is dependent on your success, our community partners. We are working day and night on an action plan that will help you get through this extremely difficult time and strengthen your relationships in the communities you serve. We will share this with you as soon as possible in the coming weeks.
Second, these are unprecedented and uncertain times, people are struggling. All around us, the COVID-19 virus is affecting communities, whether they’re in our own communities or around the world. Since the start of the pandemic, we’re seeing an increase in demand from companies and consumers interested in ways to give back in their communities in response to COVID-19. As the demand for charitable giving increases, we are committed to doing our part to help our customers quickly and seamlessly make a difference.
As of today, we are expanding our Crowdsource Savings Goal product into Charitable Giving Goal campaigns. This means any of our customers looking to launch a crowd fundraising drive for a cause, such as donating to local food shelters or feed first level responders, can take advantage of Wallit’s Charitable Giving Goal product. We can turn around a charitable giving campaign for a community financial institution or local business in less than 48 hours. And, for any individual who wants to launch a charitable giving goal, to empower their friends and to support their favorite causes, it can be live in less than 2-3 minutes.
While it’s clear to all of us that the coronavirus has deeply impacted our community, we know that this moment will pass and local commerce will be back – stronger than ever.
We need your help to keep our people well and safe. We are partners, and we will get through this together.
Mike, Allii, and Chris
