So 2018’s been a hell of a year, huh? To close it out properly, everyone on the Postlight team got $500 to donate to the 501(c)(3) of their choice – just like we did in 2017 and 2016. So many organizations are working hard to make this world a better place, and we’re grateful for them and proud to be able to offer our support.
