Simbi Community Letter #4: Here come the holidays!

November 2021  Community Letter 
Hello Simbians!
As Thanksgiving approaches in the US, we’re thankful to Simbi’s worldwide community of members, donors, and volunteers that keep us humming along on our mission to provide the best mutual aid platform ever!
If you’re looking for holiday gift ideas, Simbi volunteer Monique has you covered with some great holiday gifting tips on our blog for avoiding the trap of Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness!

Giving Tuesday is coming! Wanna help?

On Giving Tuesday, donors reject consumerism by showering love on nonprofit organizations. In Simbi’s first year as a nonprofit organization, we’d LOVE to make a Giving Tuesday splash!
If you have experience planning and executing similar philanthropic marketing campaigns, we want your help making it the best we can!

New Feature: Send simbi credits directly!

Simbi members can now send credits directly to other members, no negotiation requred! It works a lot like Venmo or PayPal, but within the Simbi community. The memo line you add for the payment will even create a request listing in your account that you can re-use later.
Give it a try:

Supporters keep Simbi alive!
Special thanks to new Supporters (recurring donors to Simbi) in October: Ian and Becca!  To become a Simbi Supporter, just click on the prominent “Supporter” badge on your profile to get started — even $1/month helps greatly! (If you’re logged in to Simbi, just click here) 
Simbi will always be free to use and engage with. That being said, some things we aren’t able to trade skills for, such as web hosting, and other monthly expenses that can be seen on our Operational Expenses page. As a nonprofit organization, we are deeply appreciative of all ongoing financial support we receive from our member community, and provide tax receipts for all donations! 
Volunteering with Simbi
Simbi needs the support of its entire community to stay strong and successful! In early 2021, Simbi was granted 501(c)(3) non-profit status in the United States. As a non-profit organization, we would love to get more volunteers aiding us in making Simbi the best it can be! Connect with other volunteers on our new Discord Server to let us know how you would like to assist and improve Simbi!
Simbi is also on Simbi! Check out our current requests to see how your skills could help improve the Simbi experience for everyone in the community!
