We are an inquisitive bunch here at Shareagift and we love discovering what people use Shareagift for. This week we caught up with Joanna, a great Shareagifter, who used Shareagift to collect money online with friends and family for a leaving gift for her friend Dave who is moving all the way to Frankfurt, Germany.
Joanna set an exaggerated goal of £1000 for her page and managed to raise 105% of her target in just 9 days! This has gone towards a brand new keyboard for Dave to take to Germany with him. After such a successful campaign here’s what Joanna had to say about her Shareagift experience.
What gave you the idea to create a page and start collecting money for your friend?
As our friend, Dave, is moving to Frankfurt, Germany we decided that we’d love to get him a big and special present from all those close to him.
Why did you choose Shareagift?
My thought process went something like this: “I wish there was a way to create a donations page, like how you would give to a sponsored run, but for a group present” and then I found Shareagift.
How helpful has this page been in collecting money together?
The page has been crucial in collecting the money. It has made such a difference for people to see what they are giving to and the progress of our target – I am sure that we wouldn’t have raised half as much without this page.
With the help of Shareagift have you managed to achieve what you set out to do?
We raised four times more than we anticipated with Shareagift!
What sorts of people have contributed to your page?
Friends and family.
If you were to set up a new Shareagift page what and who would it be for?
I would be keen to use Shareagift again for a leaving present or to help celebrate a big birthday for a friend or family member.
