Now, University of Iowa students and alumni can raise even more money to help even more kids! This new site is letting us capture some of the $450 billion Americans spend every year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents. Here are three easy ways to participate:
1. Give it as a Present Instead of buying and giving yet more "stuff," do something meaningful. Use this site to make a meaningful charitable donation in a friend's name. Find your favorite team below, select their charitable gift, and donate any amount. Personalized greeting cards make it truly memorable. (The team and the member you specify will both be credited with the donation).
2. Get Others to Give it as a Present to You Create a Charitable Wish List, and add your team's donation gift. Then, share it with friends and family to let them know you would rather they donate in your name instead of buying you another pair of fuzzy slippers. (Again, the team and the specified member will both be credited with the donation).
3. Get Others to Give it as a Present to One Another Encourage friends and family to use this site to donate in one another’s names instead of shopping for merchandise, as well as to create their own Charitable Wish List with your team's charitable gift..
Student Profile Pages As well as creating a wish list, you can easily create your Profile Page to show what you care about, and improve your online reputation. That will also display you on your team page.
