On December 15th, 2018, we launched Gojoy’s prototype. A year later, on December 13th, 2019, we had the pleasure to celebrate our first birthday in the company of some of our members. They came from different provinces in China, some travelling thousands of kilometres in overnight high-speed trains, some bringing children and grandpas along. A good forty Gojoy members came just to give us a handshake and share some food and cake.
The gesture of these members touched the Gojoy staff deeply. When we floated the idea of inviting members to come to our one-year birthday celebration, we were not expecting any reaction. But they took our word for it. And here they were in our office, shaking the hands of each one of our team members, giving us feedback, talking like partners do.
Later, sitting among them, enjoying a Chinese banquet and exchanging life stories, the Gojoy team felt humbled. Sharing that moment with them was the perfect reward for our hard work. Their brand loyalty and the confirmation that we have positively impacted the lives of our members, was the best birthday present we could have asked for. Happy birthday, Gojoy!
