Year-end Recap Email Example

Here’s a nice example of how the University Community Collaborative of Philadelphia, based out of Temple University, used one of MailChimp’s Holiday Templates to send out a year-end recap email.  One thing that is unique and interesting about this campaign is  the embedded a video recapping some of the group’s favorite moments of 2008.

Although you can’t embed video in your HTML email and have it play within your recipients’ email program, it will work when they click the link to "view this email in a browser," because at that point the email is being rendered as a web page.
