High School Students: Help Yourselves and the World
Here are two great opportunities for high school students to make the world a better place, while also benefiting themselves.
Everyone will google you. When you apply to college, a job, internship, or scholarship. Even when you meet people in school, at a party, or online. They want to know about more than just your grades. They want to see what makes you you.
You will gain a distinct advantage when they see that more dimensional, likeable, impressive picture of who you are; when they see your activities, leadership, what you care about, and what you are doing to make a difference; and when they recognize that you share their commitment to making the world a better place.

How We Are Changing The Present
Nonprofits Urgently Need More Funding
Nonprofits have nowhere near enough funding to tackle the causes you care about—hunger, climate change, cancer, animal welfare, human rights, mental health, sexual abuse, and countless others.
Schools Need More Funding, Too
Millions of students are shortchanged by the lack of books, computers, sports equipment, musical instruments, science materials, art supplies, and other resources in schools nationwide. Perhaps your school has this problem, too.
A New Resource for Making a Difference
You know what? Mom and Dad don't need another scarf or necktie.
At the same time that nonprofits struggle for funding to address the causes you care about, Americans spend $450 billion a year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.
That money could do so much good if some of it went to nonprofits and schools.
Charitable Donations are the Most Meaningful Presents
We help nonprofits and schools capture some of that fortune now spent on presents.
We do it by making the experience of a meaningful donation, which you give in a friend or family member's name, feel like a rewarding present and a nice alternative to shopping for yet more "stuff."
Specific charitable gifts let everyone change the world in exactly the way they want.
A Rewarding Experience
As well as specific charitable gifts, we provide personalized printed greeting cards, e-cards, wish lists, registries, charitable gift cards, and more.
Let's Change the World Together!
Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people give and request meaningful donations instead of "stuff"! Each 1% of the money now spent on presents is $4.5 billion a year. That's more than the largest nonprofit in the country raises nationwide.
