Change the World as a Campus Ambassador


"an of the nonprofit world.”

About Changing The Present


We channel to nonprofits and schools some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.


We do that by making the experience of a donation, given in a friend's name, feel like a rewarding present and an appealing alternative to buying yet more "stuff." We provide tangible charitable gifts (preserve an acre of the rain forest, fund an hour of cancer research, etc.), personalized printed greeting cards, wish lists and registries, gift cards, etc. This slideshow provides an overview of our program.


Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people adopt this more meaningful type of giving!
