It pays to thank – how thanking can double your acquisition efforts

Saying "thank you" is something we say hundreds if not thousands of times a month, it's good manners, yet when it comes to saying "thank you" to fundraisers we miss an opportunity, or worse still do not thank them at all. In this session we explore how the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention took the human to human approach to thank their fundraisers and the amazing results they say from doing this.
