Group Gifts for the Holidays

Holiday Group Gifting that Feels Great

Happy Holidays!  Who else is excited for the holidays?  Even though it will look a lot different this year, there are still lots of ways to celebrate.  And we have made group gifting easy and fun!

Wish & Give is the perfect solution to thanking teachers or coaches virtually.  Our online platform helps you arrange a group monetary gift and a donation to charity.  All from the comfort of home.  No shopping required. And everyone will feel great about giving back to a local charity.

How to set up a group gift:

  1. Ask your teacher, coach or honoured recipient what charity they would like to support.  Or choose one for them.
  2. Create an invitation at wishandgive.ca. In step 1, choose ‘Teacher’s Gift’
  3. Send the private URL, generated after the invitation is created, to those who are contributing.
  4. Watch the contributions come in and add up!
  5. Email us after all the contributions are in and we’ll send the cash gift* to the honoured recipient and the donation to the charity.

Easy-peasy and everyone will feel great about giving back.  Canadian charities need our support more than ever now.  This is a one stop shop to do something good and say happy holidays to your teacher, ballet teacher, swim coach, hockey coach…

No shopping. No leaving home. And feel good about supporting a local charity!

*We use Pay Pal to send the gift, minus the administration fees of 5.5% and 50 cents per transaction.

Celebrate your Co-workers in a fun & easy way!

We have a solution to improve office celebrations and make everyone feel great at the same time!

Do you celebrate birthdays, weddings or new babies at work?  We hope so!  We spend more time with our co-workers than our own families sometimes.  They deserve to be celebrated!

But who is organizing these celebrations?  Who passes around a card, tracks the contributions on excel, buys the gift or gift card?  It’s a lot of work and usually falls to the same staff person over and over.

Remember the last time an envelope was passed around the office to collect cash for a co-workers upcoming wedding or baby shower but not having any cash on hand to contribute?  Were you the one passing it around, trying to track said envelope each night, tracking contributions and sending reminders?

Wish & Give will make celebrating and gifting your co-worker easier!  And help everyone feel great at the same time!  A win-win.

Wish & Give is an online invitation platform that manages group gifting.  The twist?  Every invitation includes an option to donate to the honoured guests favourite charity. 

Science has proven it feels good to give, so you’re basically giving a shot of happiness to your entire department!

To get started, create your free personalized invitation online at www.wishandgive.ca and send the personalized URL to your department.  Everyone can contribute with their credit card with a few easy clicks.  Wish & Give will send the cash to the honoured guest and to the charity.   Office parties have never been simpler.

 

Looking for the perfect teacher’s gift this holiday?

Group gift giving is a perfect way to show your appreciation for your child’s teacher or coach this season.  But we understand coordinating everyone can be complicated and time consuming.

Wish and Give is an easy solution to group gifting! And you help a Canadian charity at the same time!

It’s easy…simply set up an invitation on wishandgive.ca and send the URL to the parents in your child’s class or team via email or text. Ask your teacher or coach about a charity that is close to their heart and parents can contribute to both the gift and the charity.

Wish and Give will send the cash gift to your teacher or coach and the donation directly to the charity. Saving time, being green and spreading that oh-so-good feeling of giving.

Happy Holidays!

“As a teacher, I am very grateful for the thoughtful acts of appreciation and kindness that I get from my students, but to be honest, I don’t need a lot of things.  Wish and Give allows the parents of my students to donate to a charity that is important to me (Sistema Toronto), while also giving me a portion of the money that I could spend on something for myself.  I think it’s a fantastic idea.  It is better for the environment, convenient for parents, and we get to give back to charities that could really use some extra support!”
