With Christmas a mere few weeks away, I’m wondering if anyone else has felt like it has snuck up on them? No matter how much time I have – or in the case of this year, don’t have – for Christmas shopping I always like to make the effort to make an extra donation of sorts to a children’s charity or similar.
And this year, given I’m going to be pressed for time, I think I’ve found the perfect solution to spread a little extra cheer.
Simply Giving is an online toy drive facility bringing convenience, cost-savings and appropriateness to the giving process. They do this by partnering with charities and establish a branded page to facilitate a toy drive.
The business was founded about ten years ago as a way to assist charities reduce their costs, increase their donations and increase their efficiency of getting donated gifts to those in need.
Simply Giving not only provides the digital interface for charities, they also store and coordinate the toys in their warehouse before distributing them to various locations around the country – effectively taking the logistical challenges away. This makes it super easy for donors and the organisations who now only have to deliver to families and children.
Since beginning it has facilitated the giving of over $2m worth of toys. For charities in need of sourcing toys for their beneficiaries, or donors hoping to get into the spirit of giving, you need to connect with Simply Giving.
So, this Thank You Thursday, we say howdy to the team of elves at Simply Giving for helping bring Santa into the digital age and making an otherwise busy time of the year just that little bit easier for charities.
See you in the pond,
The Fish Chick.
