Ok guys, before I ask for donations, we need to figure out what we want to do. I do like the idea of lunch, but I have no idea how many people work in their department.

Here are a few ideas, let me know what you think:
-Local Pizza shop gift combined gift certificate for Travis and Jeff and their department.
-Visa gift card one each for Travis and Jeff
-Gift card to major retailer likely to be in their area
-Gift cards to local restaurant one each for Travis and Jeff
-Framed letter with HKPRO logo/letterhead (if approved) for each Travis and Jeff.

Best Way

I'm a COO for a company and the best way? Send an email or letter to the senior VP or U.S. corporate president. Travis will be promoted and a substantial raise $$$. If he is fired, abandon HK. That is my corporate philosophy.

Better than any pizza!

Guys I'm going to bump this one more time to try to get this accomplished. I think JL and DMG have done wonderful work in getting this going. I think that the letter is terrific and so are everyone else's suggestions on recognition. I'm much more than willing to send something small to whomever's paypal to get the pizza, or whatever we want, going. But, sheesh, this is taking way too long. Soooo, bump!

No one responded to any of my suggestions of types of gifts. I didnt want to make a decision on my own. Maybe I should post a poll in a new thread?

Hey also just to add something. I work IT, right now I do systems integration, prior I was a data specialist for sprint and cingular. When you go to those companies for support they have all these rules about accepting gifts from customers. As if you do it someone could call that being biased towards a customer and file a lawsuit and such. We had to give gifts to the manager he had to clear them, then maybe in 6 months you would get it, or management would keep it and give you a letter in exchange.

The rule at the big phone companies was if it has a cash value (signed autograph NFL football for instance) it cannot be kept by the employee. Just something to think about, would stink to do all that well thought out work and then have someone other than travis or Jeff get your gift card as a company give-away (which is where most of the presents and gifts Sprint and cingular got went). Just to help ya out a lil =) I say go for it if you like the CS though!

Thanks for the info...what if we did something like this. Took the letter and had it inscribed in acrylic like this, one for each of them. It has no monetary value, but still is a very nice way to say thank you.

I think that is awesome, but equally, the letter itself is awesome. If that is where we end up excellent, but again, let's "end up" somewhere soon here. JL if it will start some momentum, either post publicly or private message me a paypal and I'll do my donation now. Thanks again to all who have helped with this, I think it is a terrific thing to do. Cheers.

Let me call a few companies next week that do the acrylic stuff and ask them if an entire letter would be legible. Im working nights right now off of lake superior in some rather desolate areas and dont have much time this week.

The letter might be too big for that type of display. If so, could we do something like a couple of framed letters and then do the acrylic something like just a big thank you from the the guys at HKpro, or something like that.

Yeah this sounds like a cool idea, it is always neat when customers do things for you. I work for a small company now and they could care less if I take gifts =) I would assume though HK america customer service would be like Sprint or Cingular where they have those rules. I would hate to see you guys give them something cool like a gift card and then have the management take it and give them a letter in exchange. The stand up display you posted is very nice though because it has no value to anyone except the person receiving it so you are safe in any case =)

Yes that might look better. I am worried if we try to do the letter the text may be to small to be easily read. This is why I wanted to get the opinion of someone who sells these for their input.

Ok, I talked to a few people and a whole letter in acrylic would be really hard to read and might look jumbled. They said its best to keep it to a few lines so that the award can be read from a distance and really stands out.

With that said, does anyone disagree with this idea of sending two framed letters accompanied by 2 acrylic awards, one for Travis and one for Jeff?

I think that sounds great, where should I send paypal? Thanks for all the extra effort on this one! Cheers.

Are we going to get this done?

As posted earlier, I live relatively close to HKI. If we can agree on an item(s), I will gladly purchase and deliver such to HKI. ;) I know you guys are good for reimbursement of the pro-rata share! :D

Let me know, Tony!
