This is the very core of our service and one of the fundamental reasons why we started GiftRound.
Giving connects people. It cultivates community and makes people happier and healthier; whether they give or receive, and we love being a part of it all. It is human nature to want to connect and care for one another and the process of gifting helps to do this.
We believe that it shouldn't only be about giving gifts on special occasions. That is only the beginning. Every opportunity, to give, is worth celebrating. Wouldn't you agree?
"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity"
The moment there is a need for something there is, in turn, an opportunity to help answer that need. Making the most of these opportunities is where the magic lies. Here at GiftRound, we don’t just provide a simple hassle-free money collection service, we also provide the opportunity to help those people most in need.
We are committed to giving a percentage of our profit, increasing each year, to our charity partners. As we grow, so does our contribution. But it doesn't stop there. Earlier this year we trialled an option for our users to give a small donation to charity when contributing to their collection. This proved such a great success that we were able to raise over £2,500 in just 3 months. The success of this initiative has inspired us to do even more. So in 2021, we will bring back this option, with the hope of raising even more money and helping even more people.
"Great things are done when a series of small things are bought together."
A statement that rings true, regardless of the context. Your donations, even small ones, have a huge impact.
A sticking point for many, when deciding whether or not to give, is a lack of trust and the question of whether the money donated will actually get to the people who need it. This is a valid point and one that I’m sure you have raised many times before.
Transparency is very important to us and we like you to know exactly where your donation is going.
We currently support two charities:
Both of these charities do great things for the local community, providing support to the people who need it the most.
We plan to expand our reach, in regard to the charities that we support. We will also provide more information on the great things that have been accomplished with your generosity. Watch this space.
Thank you so much for using GiftRound for your group collections for gifts. As we grow we can help more charities and change more lives.
We would love to hear from you. If you know of or are involved with, a charity that would benefit from the help of the GiftRound community please get in touch and let us know.
