Our friends at Morgan Stanley shared a favorite hug on Twitter for National Hug Day. The photo captures a group hug with Prime Brokerage Associate Dean Fabrizio during our first Fitness Fest event last spring. It was named Volunteer Picture of the Year in 2015 with $5,000 in proceeds donated to our preschool as part of Morgan Stanley's Giving Back philanthropy campaign.
After posting the picture on Twitter, Morgan Stanley Executive Director Jeremy Welles surprised us by accepting donations for JFTN for every hug Dean received from his colleagues.
600 Morgan Stanley employees hugged Dean last Thursday. And our staff stepped up with matching donations, giving hugs to every student.
Thanks to the Prime Brokerage team, we've hugged our way to more than $900 in donations!
This is a picture worth a thousand hugs. Help us reach our fundraising goal of $1,000 by supporting our preschool with a donation. For every dollar you donate, a child at JFTN will get an extra hug.
Update: We exceeded our goal of 1,000 hugs! We're grateful to everyone who donated and helped us give so many extra hugs to our students this week. Thank you!
