This post has not been compensated, but I would like to thank Evite for the Thank You gift I received for participating. All opinions and my love for celebrating and giving back are 100% my own.
Thankfully, life gives us a lot of reasons to celebrate. We can even turn what may seem minor events into reasons to celebrate if we want to and whatever the reason is that we decide to celebrate, the most important part of that celebration is time spent together. Togetherness is really how we create most of life’s most special moments. What would happen though if we took those celebrations a little further though and tried to create some special moments for others as well? Family, friends, memories and charity all at the same time? I’m telling you this is completely possible.
Now I’ve always heard about people who accept charitable donations from family and friends for a favorite nonprofit in place of, or in addition to, traditional party gifts and I’ve always though it was an awesome idea and something I’d totally be into trying…someday…when I figure out a good way to make it happen. Well, thank goodness for Evite because they’ve done the hard part for me with Evite Donations. Evite Donations, powered by Pledgeling, is a free tool that turns every Evite event into an opportunity to give back. If you’re already using Evite to send out the invites to the amazing celebrations you’re hosting, you can easily add donations to your invitations by selecting a favorite nonprofit when you create the invites. Easy peasy right?! Just the way I like it because giving back shouldn’t be hard. And if your favorite non-profit isn’t already on the list of over 10,000 organizations, you can even recommend your own. It’s super easy for guests donate without ever even leaving the Evite website and Evite never charges a fee to make donations. With 32 million+ registered users so far, that’s a lot of giving power right there and to date, Evite Donations has been part of 20,000+ events, and guests have helped raised over $1 million to-date for charities nationwide. Wowza!!
