FILES - Farewell Letter

FILES - Farewell Letter for New Members

Sometimes it's a good idea to poll your members on their reason(s) for leaving. It could be for something as simple as relocation, but perhaps there are underlying issues that need to be addressed.

Here are a few examples you can use for your files regarding Farewell Letters for your Freecycle (R) members. Simply copy and paste... and feel free to edit as necessary!

Replace all XXX references with your local group name.


Example #1 - Farewell Letter - On-Site Groups



Dear Freecycle.org[R] Alumnus!

We certainly hate to see you leave our group. Is there something we can do to change your mind? If you could let us know the reason, we would love the opportunity to help!

If you were getting too much mail, we want to make sure you know that you have the option of changing the frequency you receive messages. If you would like to try one of those options, please rejoin My.Freecycle.org and make the appropriate changes to your settings. Go to the My Groups tab, click on the drop-down, and scroll to the frequency you would like. Remember to click on Change e-mail Preferences to save your changes.

If someone said something that did not agree with you, we would like to know about it. Perhaps there's a problem that needs to be resolved. Or maybe you just didn't have time? We all seem to be so busy these days!

Whatever the reason, we thank you for visiting us, and invite you back whenever you can stop by. The doors of Freecycle.org are always open to you!

If you have moved, visit http://www.freecycle.org to find the closest Freecycle.org group.

Example #2 - Farewell Letter



Dear Freecycle (R) Alumnus,

Thank you for helping to make The Freecycle Network the special thing that it is.

Now that you have unsubscribed, please realize that it can take up to 3 days to process. We apologize for the delay. Trying to unsubscribe or switch to "special notices" or any other change generally delays the process even more (add a day for each additional change).

Best advice: grin and bear it and you'll be free soon to continue your life beyond our little community online. If there was something that we could have done to make your stay with us any better, please reply to this email and let us know. Your email will reach the group moderators.

May all your journeys be safe ones!

Example #3 - Farewell Letter - Yahoo Groups



Dear Freecycle(R) Alumnus!

We certainly hate to see you leave the group. Is there something we can do to change your mind?

If you could let us know the reason, maybe there's something we could do. If you were getting too much mail, we want to make sure you know that you have the option of getting the Digest version (which brings up to 25 posts in one email) or the "special notices" version which would allow you to just read the posts on the home page (instead of receiving individual messages).

If you would like to try one of those options, please rejoin and make the appropriate changes to your settings. If someone said something that did not agree with you, we would like to know about it. Perhaps there's a problem that needs to be resolved.

Or maybe you just didn't have time? We all seem to be so busy these days! If you'd like to come back to the group on "special notices" and just visit occasionally, you're more than welcome to do so.

Whatever the reason, we thank you for visiting us, and invite you back whenever you can stop by. The doors of Freecycle are always open to you!

Example #4 - Farewell Letter - Yahoo Groups


Dear Freecycle(R) Alumnus,

We're sorry to see you leave. Thank you for having helped make The Freecycle Network(R) the special thing that it is.

We always wonder why people choose to leave the group.

- Were you not sure what to give away?<br>
- Did you think you had nothing more to give?<br>
- Did you get frustrated?<br>
- Were there too many emails?

We would love to hear from you what reasons you have for leaving. If it is something that can be resolved to maintain your membership, we would be glad to have you back.

For example, too many emails can be resolved by changing to Daily Digest from Individual Emails!!! One email per day versus dozens!!

Please email us at XXX-owner@yahoogroups.com and let us know what prompted your leaving the group. If we can help you solve it, we will.

If not, your feedback is still valuable to us. Now that you have unsubscribed, please realize that it can take Yahoo Groups up to 3 days to process... our sincere apologies for the delay.

May all your journeys be safe ones!
