Thanks for organizing this.

One of our colleagues sent us an email. He wanted to take a collection up for a gift for our beloved secretary. I told him I would contribute. I also wanted to say to him, "thanks for organizing this." Does it sound alright? What would you say if you want to tell him that you appreciate his initiative and efforts regarding this activity? Thanks.

    It is fine. I would probably write "thank you" out in full here, on the basis that if it is worth thanking someone in writing for something, then the casualness of "thanks" can sound out of place, but I think you could use either here.

    If 'thank you' is not as casual as the typical speech of your office, and you want to sound as sincere as you feel, you could say "I really appreciate your organizing this."
