Below is an excerpt from our October 2021 newsletter.
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.

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.
