Sharing Wishes Holiday Wish List

Message from FSP Case Managers:

Thank you for all of your recent donations. Because of your generosity, we have been able to provide diapers for the families with young children. TeamSoft has also donated gas cards to the Family Stabilization program. With these gas cards, clients have been able to get to their jobs, go grocery shopping for their family, attend important appointments and even have transportation to experience summer activities that they would not ordinarily be able to participate in. The families have been appreciative of all the help they have received in order to complete these tasks and activities.

This holiday season, we are asking for help purchasing presents for the parents. There are many community programs to assist children around the holiday season but nothing for the parents. Many of the parents participating in the FSP have not received gifts since they were children. The children we have talked to are also very excited and told us it will actually feel like Christmas if everyone has a gift to open.

We are really thrilled that you are helping their Christmas Wishes come true. This will be an amazing opportunity to fully assist these families who cannot afford to make the holidays special.

Grovember for Movember

Movember

The leaves have fallen to the ground. The grass is brown and dormant. Frost will soon set in. Growing season is over, but for us it’s just beginning. November is Men’s Health Month. At TeamSoft, it is Grovember!

Time to 'stache' away your razor, grow a mustache and help the TeamSoft Charitable Giving Committee contribute to the Movember Foundation for Men's Health Research.  
Guys, your part is easier than your normal morning routine: For each November day that you grow a mustache, the TCGC will donate $1 to The Movember Foundation for men's health research.

Ladies, your part is even easier – either encourage a guy family member to participate, or send us a creative, fake-mustache picture of your own and we’ll donate $1 for each picture.

We encourage you to get friends, co-workers and family to match the TCGC’s daily donation, but for you it costs nothing more than your pride!

The rules are simple:

  • Shave cleanly and send Craig your "before" picture anytime during November (or post it on our Facebook page).
  • Post or send us periodic "update" pictures (or fakestache pictures for women).
  • At the end of November, or on whichever day you choose to shave, send us an "after" picture with a creative pose.
  • It's an honor system - just let us know how many days your mustache has grown.
  • In the spirit of "Movember," our Grovember team encourages mustaches over beards. At the end of the month, we will conduct a vote for the most creative picture. The winner will receive a certificate for a free shave from a local barbershop.

Please reply and let Craig know if you'd like to particpate in Grovember. If you have any questions, please contact Craig at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

TeamSoft's 2014 United Way Campaign: DAIS

uw 4s ful-Dane-County

TeamSoft recently wrapped up our 2014 United Way campaign. United Way of Dane County set our fundraising goal at $9,000, which was significantly higher than last year’s goal. However, we had no trouble surpassing that goal and raised a total of $10,419.08!

For this year’s campaign, we chose to highlight the Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS), an organization that empowers those affected by domestic violence and advocates for social change through support, education, and outreach. We know that there are many causes that are close to all of our hearts, and many of you directed your pledge money towards DAIS this year.

We had an increase in people turning in their pledge forms this year. The biggest change over last year’s campaign is that we now have four young people who will be involved in the Rosenberry Society (giving level to join Rosenberry starts at $250), which is made up of professionals in Dane County 40 and younger who are motivated to effect big change in our community. All of the people who will be in the Rosenberry Society are very excited to attend events and participate in service projects throughout the year.

We would like to thank everyone who helped made this year’s United Way Campaign a success and for everyone’s hard work! We would also like to thank American Family Insurance for the iPad donation we used in our raffle, which was won by TeamSoft consultant, Michelle Thruman.

Baseball Comes to the Philippines

A former TeamSoft consultant who recently moved to the Philippines has a son that goes to elementary school in Cebu City. His son’s school wanted to create a baseball team in the past, but the cost of the equipment deterred the school from creating one. Thanks to TeamSoft’s donation of balls, bats, helmets, and fielder gloves, the children in grades 5 and 6 at St. Cebu (St. Theresa College Elementary) will now be able to start practicing baseball! This will give the children experience before they get to middle school, high school, and college, and will also give them a chance to learn the game that America loves.


TeamSoft Office Closed November 28th

The TeamSoft office will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 28, 2014. Enjoy your time will family and friends!


Greyhound Pets of America Fundraiser

TeamSoft helped sponsor a hole at the 6th annual Greyhound Pets of America golf outing in Cottage Grove, WI on a beautiful Sunday morning on August 24, 2014. The outing helped sponsor the Greyhound Pets of America, an all-volunteer organization that helps place retired racing greyhounds into loving homes. With the cost to prepare a greyhound for adoption far exceeding the $250 adoption fee, events like the golf tournament are greatly needed to make up the difference. TeamSoft account managers Mike Saunders and Greg Shemanek were able to attend this event and reported that the outing helped raise over $10,000! We are proud to support great organizations such as the Greyhound Pets of America and we wish them the best of luck in the future.

200 Consultants

On September 8, 2014, TeamSoft celebrated a significant milestone in our company's history of having over 200 active consultants out in the field at a single time! Since our inception in 1996, we have focused on creating long-term partnerships with each and every one of our consultants. When one contract position ends, our first interest is always to find you your next and best position. We also pride ourselves on our consultant's quality and longevity, which can be showed by our several active consultants who have been a part of the TeamSoft family for over 10 years!

It is no wonder why we are the largest locally-owned IT consulting firm in the Madison area and we owe it all to you. We are thrilled with how far we have grown and we look forward to welcoming new additions to the TeamSoft family. Once again, thank you for all of your hard work and everything you do. We couldn’t have come this far without you!

Alzheimer's and Dementia Walk

 Alzheimers WalkDid you know that there is a great organization in southern WI that needs our help to raise money for their efforts and to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s or Dementia? The Alzheimer’s Alliance (ADAW) helps people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers achieve the best possible quality of life. Through one-on-one care consultations, support groups, education classes, and professional training, the ADAW staff provides customized solutions and resources to overcome the challenges of this disease.

We are asking you to join the TeamSofties and walk with us in the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance’s Alzheimer’s Walk. We chose the team name TeamSofties because we all have a soft place in our hearts for those family members and friends that have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

The walk will be on Saturday, September 27th, 8:30am at Warner Park, 2930 N. Sherman Ave., Madison, WI.

Join our team today through our team page at  http://support.alzwisc.org/goto/TeamSofties

  • Click "Join Team"
  • Select if you are a New User or Returning User (returning users would have a username and password from previous years)
  • Select if you want to walk (no fee), run a 5k ($35) or be a Virtual Participant (no fee); you can also make a donation at this time and set your individual fundraising goal
  • Agree to terms, conditions, and waiver
  • Provide your contact information and create a username and password for your personalized fundraising page
  • Start fundraising!!!

Once you join TeamSofties, you will have access to “My Participant Center” which will provide fundraising tools like email templates, and the ability to create a personalized URL by clicking the blue “URL Settings”. You can then use this URL in your emails, Facebook postings, etc. to direct people to your fundraising site which will allow them to make a donation via credit card. You will also have the ability to personalize your Personal Page, so when people click your URL they will be greeted by a personalized message written by you.  The default is a standard greeting, but again you can customize it with your own stories of how Alzheimer’s & Dementia may have impacted your life.

This is truly a great cause and a wonderful event. We hope you will join us this year to help support the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance.
