Raise your hand if you have ever been in charge of coordinating a group gift collection for your child’s teacher, principal, coach or scout leader.
I too have been there, and while the work to recognize these very important people is worth it, haven’t you ever wondered if there were an easier way than the classic group e-mail/front the money/hope you get reimbursed rigmarole?
So, get this: There is an easier way. And we can use it for our group gifts this Chanukah and Christmas season.
I think this warrants both a “Mazel!” and a Hallelujah chorus, personally.
The Gifting Bunch is a new, easy-to-use website that allows for simple group gifting and access to more than 500 e-gift cards for the recipient. Here’s how The Gifting Bunch works.
Start A Group Gift
Choose a single gift recipient or a group fund for multiple recipients (contributions will be split evenly among all gift recipients.)
Invite Others To Join
Invite others to privately contribute and personalize the card. The recipient will be able to read personal messages from every individual or family who contributes!
Send Your Gift
Give the gift of choice – recipient can choose from 500+ incredible gift cards like Target, Amazon, Starbucks, Visa, movie theaters, restaurants and more.
The Gifting Bunch offers convenience, personalization of the card and the gift of choice for the recipient. This is HUGE for parents facing chronic VB (volunteer burnout) everywhere! I think The Gifting Bunch will completely change group gifting, just as online signups have revolutionized potlucks and volunteering. This video explains the easypeasy process.
Think of all the possibilities! Want to get that bride- or mom-to-be a larger group gift? The Gifting Bunch. Want to collect funds from all parents in the school and then distribute all contributions throughout the school staff? The Gifting Bunch. Want to round up the cash for that teacher appreciate breakfast next month before you hit Costco? The Gifting Bunch!
There is no membership fee to use The Gifting Bunch. Everyone contributing to a gift is charged a 2.9% credit card and processing fee at check out. That means on a $10 gift contribution, you would pay $10.29. This is less than the cost of one stamp needed to mail a check or a card at the store.
