Was YOUR Name Drawn?

Wow! A big thanks to all our amazing contestants this past month! We had some terrific entries – and we thank you all so much for sharing your ProspectPLUS.com experiences! If your name wasn’t drawn – no worries!  We’ll choose three MORE winners January 5th!  Congratulations everyone!

Our $250 Winner is Cathy Cinnamon Holloway who shared, “I had been using another company for our “New Listing”, “Open House” postcards until I found ProspectsPLUS! I have been EXTREMELY happy with all their services. I love their capture address tools, the fact they use the “mailing address” from the property appraiser instead of the physical address is a HUGE asset to me since we are largely a second home market. I have far fewer postcard returns. My husband and I are doing our Marketing plans for 2017, and I think I’ll be using ProspectsPLUS! for a large part of our marketing efforts!”

Our $100 winner is Jakki Henriquez who shared, “I have been using ProspectsPLUS! for over two years now. I have it automatically set up so that ProspectsPLUS! works for me. Automatically sending out just listed and just sold postcards has been great for my business. I have gotten many listings and prospective buyers from using this simple and easy tool. The wonderful part of it all is that it seems I’m doing all the work but in reality, ProspectsPLUS! is doing it all for me. Love it!”

Our $50 winner is Mary Ann Varner‎ who shared, “ProspectsPLUS! continues to deliver efficiently and effectively. I enjoy the many avenues they offer to market to prospects and the variety they provide in their marketing pieces. You’re the marketing PROs… Thanks ProspectsPLUS!!”

Thank you to everyone who entered! Ready to throw your hat in the ring? It’s easy!  Leave your review of your ProspectsPLUS.com product or service on our Google+ Page or our Facebook Page today!  We’ll give away a total of $400 more in ProspectsPLUS! gift cards!  Next drawing is January 5th!

Meet Gideon!  Baby Gideon is a handsome little guy with a ready smile. Just three days after it was found Gideon had stage 4, high-risk neuroblastoma, he was receiving his first dose of chemotherapy at St. Jude little gideonChildren’s Research Hospital®. His long and intensive cancer treatment plan involves surgery, antibody therapy and a bone marrow transplant – but his smile has never waned.

Gideon’s dad said, “As soon as we got here, it was abundantly clear that St. Jude was by far the best place to be in a terrible, terrible situation.”

Gideon’s great-grandmother has been giving faithfully to St. Jude for over 25 years, never expecting she would personally know anyone who needed St. Jude – much less be a member of a St. Jude family herself. Like all families at St. Jude, Gideon’s will never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. “Those concerns evaporate when you’re here, because of the supporters,” said Gideon’s mom.

If you’d like to help us help kids just like Gideon, please donate today.  We will match your donations dollar for dollar!  Learn more at blog.prospectsplus.com/st-jude/.

By the way – for EVERY football schedule postcard order through September 15th, we’re also donating 10% (less postage, tax and shipping) to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Get started today.

Gracie, 5 years oldgracie

Diagnosis: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Gracie’s story:

When 5-year-old Gracie didn’t want her belly touched, her mom feared appendicitis. In fact, the diagnosis as worse: acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood cancer that is also the most common form of cancer in children.

Referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Gracie began a treatment plan of two and a half years of chemotherapy, at no cost to her family.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. “Everything St. Jude is doing for us, and we won’t have to pay a bill? That’s amazing,” said Gracie’s mom. “Being able to focus on nothing but your child is a wonderful thing.”

Gracie adores her care team at St. Jude. From her Child Life Specialist to her doctor, she calls them by name and doles out hugs and love-notes.

Please help us help kids like Gracie and their families.

Introducing 8 Year Old Leland

As proud supporters of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, we would like to introduce you to their patient of the month: Eight year old Leland!

His story:

In 2014, Leland started having headaches. His parents were concerned but not alarmed, because migraines run in the family. But then more symptoms appeared. Leland’s grandmother noticed he was holding his left arm funny. His mother, Marisa, noticed his smile was off kilter in a photograph. Soon, a series of tests revealed Leland suffered from an aggressive brain cancer known as an atypical teratoid/ rhabdoid tumor, or simply ATRT.

When considering treatment options, Marisa sought her doctor’s recommendation. “My doctor said, ‘If it was my child, I would be going to St. Jude,’” Marisa recalled. After receiving a referral, Leland and Marisa were on their way to Memphis.

At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Leland’s treatment has included surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. “St. Jude is amazing,” said Marisa. “Not just all the leaps and bounds they’re taking medically, and how many children they save, but how they don’t just treat his diagnosis. Kids can be kids here, and I think that helps a lot with their healing.”

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

Leland loves to make people laugh. He says silly things and never lets anything get him down. “He’s strong and amazing,” Marisa said. “I draw my strength from Leland, because he amazes me every day.” Some of Leland’s favorite things are tacos, baseball, kittens and the beach.  Watch a video about Leland here.

Here at ProspectsPLUS! we’ve committed to helping kids just like Leland and their families get the help, support, and medical attention they need. We’d love to have you join us in effort!

ProspectsPLUS! Partners with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to Raise $30,000

Raising Research Funds With Our “Year of the Kids” Campaign

As part of our renewed commitment to service, we’ve selected St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as our official charity partner since 2016. Since 1962, St. Jude has led pioneering research and treatments for kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude has helped increase the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20 percent to 80 percent and with the generous support of donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

We kick started our first year as a St. Jude partner with a “Year of the Kids Campaign” and will match every donation to St. Jude from our customers dollar for dollar through May 31, 2018. ProspectsPLUS! will donate a minimum of $30,000 to St. Jude to support its lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®” by offering four different donation denominations ($5, $10, $25, $50 dollars).  Customers can choose a denomination in the order management system and ProspectsPLUS! will match every donation dollar for dollar.

Additional opportunities for employee participation and product-specific donations will be announced in coming months.

“Cancer is something that has affected the lives of us all and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s impeccable reputation for research, development and patient care in the fight against childhood cancer made it the perfect choice for our organization,” said Jim Morton, President of ProspectsPLUS! “Our team has long supported great causes. We brought a team of ten to the Habitat for Humanity project in the lower ninth ward after Hurricane Katrina, sponsored a Coats for Kids drive for inner city schools, and are a frequent contributor to arts programs in our local schools. This partnership with St. Jude allows us to bring our level of service to another level, and we couldn’t be more passionate about the mission.”

Our goal is to introduce the new partnership and platform opportunities for giving to more than one million real estate professionals across North America, as well as to our customer base of entrepreneurs and business colleagues around the globe to reach or exceed their $30,000 goal.
