Everyone Googles You

Everyone Googles You

When you apply to college, for a job or internship, for scholarships. When you meet someone at a party or online. They will google you.

They are looking for more than grades. They want to see what makes you you.  That includes your activities, what you care about, and what you are doing to make a difference.

 

Yale

"Selecting future Yale students was a combination of looking for those who would make the most of the extraordinary resources assembled here...and those with an outstanding public motivation - in other words, applicants with a concern for something larger than themselves."

Kingman Brewster
Former President

Meaningful Gifts Make a Difference

We help nonprofits and schools—all of which urgently need more funding—capture some of the $450 billion fortune Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.

We do that by making the experience of a donation, which you give in a friend's name, feel like a rewarding present and a great alternative to buying yet more unwanted merchandise.

Imagine the impact as more and more people adopt this meaningful type of giving! Each 1% of the money now spent on presents would be $4.5 billion per year to do good.

Here are a few of our thousands of charitable gifts from hundreds of outstanding nonprofits.

Help your favorite nonprofit or school capture some of the money now spent on presents. Just say the word, and we will gladly prioritize an invitation to them.

Feed a child

Cancer research

Protect an Acre

Human Rights

Stop sexual abuse

Shelter animals
