SPS Commerce Wins United Way Twin Cities Best Video Award

by | Apr 3, 2015

Take five grown men, teach them some hot dance moves, write a song about the United Way, and then record them singing and dancing to it.

When you’re SPS Commerce, that’s how you inspire employees during the United Way campaign.

Last year, as part of our employee donation campaign, several of our staffers created the video, “I Donated to the United Way.”

Including the singing and dancing part.



 I made a difference
I helped a few kids
Believe when I say
I donated to the United Way

But this wasn’t just a few guys standing around with a smartphone and a karaoke machine. These guys went all out and put on a show with some real production values.

Seriously, ours was voted the best video in the Twin Cities United Way Campaign Week for 2014.

There’s even an annual competition for the different campaigns and categories — Best In Show, Best In Fundraising, Best Campaign Innovation, Best in Community Impact, and Best Video.

We beat out two excellent entries by U.S. Bancorp and Enterprise Holdings, and our staff even rushed the stage when they announced “SPS Commerce.”

It was a proud moment, and even though it was fun, we were even more proud of the SPS Commerce staff’s continued support and commitment to the United Way.

So how do we top our 2014 performance? We’ve got hundreds, thousands, of creative minds working here at SPS. Stay tuned for Campaign week November 16 – 20, 2015, to find out how we can make a difference to our community, and have a good time doing it.
