#LitmusGives: A Big Thank You to the Email Community for Supporting the Pine Street Inn

[ 0 By

October is the month of giving here at Litmus. That means we encourage Litmus team members around the globe to volunteer, but it also means that we want to use the power of Litmus Live and the wonderful email community that comes together for it to support local charity organizations that are close to our hearts. 

That’s why we had the Pine Street Inn join us for Litmus Live. The team at Pine Street Inn helps homeless men and women in the Boston area with emergency services, housing, and workforce development programs. At Litmus Live, we invited them to share the incredible work they do for the Boston community.  

We’re so proud to share that we helped raise a total of $8,872 cash donations for the Pine Street Inn, along with plenty of other donations. Here’s the breakdown:

  • The Litmus Live attendees helped us unlock a total of $5,000 in Litmus donations.
  • The email community donated another staggering $1,872 on-site. Two anonymous donors committed to matching all donations made by attendees—and they generously rounded up to contribute a total of $2,000.
  • We collected about $225 worth of gift cards to help homeless people in need buy a meal.
  • The community also donated countless shirts, toiletries, and locks to help people in the homeless shelter keep their personal belongings safe.

#emailgeeks, thank you so much for supporting our #LitmusGives initiative at Litmus Live and for supporting the Pine Street Inn’s mission of ending homelessness in Boston. The entire Litmus team and our friends from the Pine Street Inn couldn’t be more thankful.

“A big thank you to the Litmus Team and everyone in the email community who stopped by our booth to learn about the Pine Street Inn and for your generous donations to support our cause. We really appreciate your support.” 


Scottie Wait, Director of Corporate Engagement, Pine Street Inn
