Centrepoint Fundraiser

October 2021

In October, our CEO announced that his birthday wish was to raise money for charity. He invited the entire company to join him in raising funds.

Below is an excerpt from our October 2021 newsletter.

Our CEO’s Birthday Wish

Genistar’s CEO, Jeff Lestz, will be celebrating his birthday soon, and his wish is to raise money for a charity called Centrepoint. Centrepoint is dedicated to giving homeless young people a brighter future. This charity is close to his heart because he experienced homelessness himself as a teenager. He would like to invite everyone to join him in supporting this worthy organization. To that end, he has set up a JustGiving page for any contributions you might wish to make. You can read more about Centrepoint here.

In addition, Jeff and Margo will be personally matching the total amount raised, up to £10,000. So whatever is raised on JustGiving, will be doubled. Please see the short video below to find out more.

November 2021

The entire company pulled together to raise £10,000 (and had fun in the process), then Jeff and Margo Lestz matched funds to bring it up to £20,000.

Genistar Raises £20,000 for Charity

At Genistar we believe in having fun, giving back, and helping others. Last month we raised money for Centrepoint, a charity dedicated to helping homeless young people have a brighter future. The drive was led by our CEO, who has a soft spot in his heart for this cause, since he was homeless as a teenager.

Everyone got in on the act. Our Field Support Centre had two bake sales, and we had two Chilli Challenges where members of the team ate burning hot chillis in return for donations. Then at our conference, we held an auction of donated items.

In all, we raised nearly £10,000, and our CEO and his wife have committed to matching funds up to £10,000 which will take us up to £20,000. And the drive for funds continues through the 15th of November (Yes-vember). So if you would like to contribute to this worthy cause, go to Jeff’s Just Giving page to make a donation.

Just a few of our Genistar reps at the conference having a good time during our travel-themed evening. Having fun and raising money for a good cause.

March 2022

The funds were transferred to Centrepoint in December, but in March Jeff met with the director of fundraising to present a large, symbolic cheque for £22,562.56. We are so proud that our Genistar teams, friends, and family were able to raise so much money for this fantastic charity. All funds go to helping homeless young people gain accommodation, education, and training.
