How We Calculate Meals Donated
We are currently donating as often as we can to a charity called Food for the Poor. We think this is a great organization. We have been purchasing a gift called “Feed a Family of Four for a Month” in their gift catalog.
We buy these in honor of our customers. It’s a great way, in our opinion, to do something good for our fellow humans and also to market our company without just throwing money away on advertising and marketing, enriching those that already have plenty.
We’re sending out emails to our customers when we make these donations saying that we donated “x” number of meals in their honor. This is how we come up with that “x” number:
- Number of Gifts We Give
- Multiplied by 4 people per recipient family (our estimate)
- Multiplied by 30 days in a month
- Multiplied by 3 meals per day (our best guess)
- Divided by the number of customers we are giving in honor of
So, for example, the math might look like this:
(1) gift x (4) recipients x (30) days in a month x (3) meals per day / (18) customers = (20) meals per customer
We think these assumptions are fair and sensible. They are made in good faith whether or not they are exactly correct.
Thank you, as always, for using Doors Done Right!
