20 Wishes for 20 Years from CKFI: Nominations Begin May 4

By now, many of you have received the 20th Anniversary box, which includes information about the 20 Wishes for 20 Years promotion – our way of celebrating through the granting of wishes to clients, family members and caregivers.

Do you know someone affiliated with Comfort Keepers® who would benefit from the granting of a special wish? No matter how small or ordinary it may seem, one person’s wish can make all the difference in his or her outlook and improve quality of life. And after all, isn’t that what Comfort Keepers is all about?

Nominations for 20 Wishes for 20 Years begin May 4 and run through June 30.  Please note that this promotion is meant to be internal, so it's important that you reserve your nomination for someone who can benefit from a wish, rather than polling all clients, caregivers, etc. You will need information about the person you are nominating, so please talk with them to get their story and wish, along with your local Comfort Keepers office information - but don't let them know what it's for. We want to keep the element of surprise.

Local Comfort Keepers' offices will be part of the announcement to the nominee, with CKFI coordinating the wish. And as these wishes are granted, we will share them on social media and through other marketing communication vehicles.

Beginning May 4, Comfort Keepers offices can access the nomination criteria and form in 4 ways:

Go to the Members homepage, and look for the 20 Wishes button Go to CK Brand > Programs > 20th Anniversary On your office SynCK tablet, go to Client Care > Nominate, and access the nomination form Go to CK Community, and look for the 20 Wishes button on the top right-hand corner of all discussion threads

If you have any questions about our 20th Anniversary celebration, please reach out to Joni Magnus-Ramsey, at JoniMagnusRamsey@Corp.ComfortKeepers.com.
