A Colourful Bet

It was a colourful bet that couldn’t be refused. If the team at Rewind could raise $5,000 in a week, the CEO and CTO, Mike Potter and James Ciesielski, would have to dye their hair the company colours: Ripe Mango Yellow and Electric Purple.

Mike and James accepted the bet and doubled down, announcing they would match donations if the target was met.

Team Rewind surpassed their goal, thanks to their generous staff and community, raising $6,000 in a week! As promised, Mike and James not only headed to the salon but also matched the contributions donating a total of $12,000 to the Ottawa Food Bank.

Thank you to Team Rewind for your generosity and for having fun while supporting our city. Your kindness has helped us meet the needs of thousands who turn to a food program each month.
