We are always intrigued to find out what fun and exciting things our Shareagifters are raising money for. This week we caught up with Natalie who used Shareagift to raise money for a birthday surprise for Jesse.
What gave you the idea to create a page and start collecting money for Jesse’s gift?
I got the idea because I know Jesse would have enjoyed a big surprise for his birthday such as riding a fast posh car on a track (which he has wanted to do for ages) but that it was too expensive for his friends to pay for alone.
Using the page meant that everyone could chip in for it, I also thought that it would be fun to make it a bit of a competition between two different things, a shed (which he needs) or a fast car (which he wants!). Seems like people want the shed so far!
Why did you choose Shareagift?
I chose Shareagift as for my friend’s 40th in January it was used to club together to buy him his dream guitar and seemed to work well.
How helpful has this page been in collecting money together?
It has been helpful in that it’s nice to have a page that everyone can see and that I can show Jesse afterwards.
How much of an impact will this money have on Jesse?
It will have a great impact as Jesse has had a hard year, we have a one year old who never sleeps (Oscar) so he deserves something special happening for him, although he will be really embarrassed, he’s quite shy!
If you were to set up a new Shareagift page what and who would it be for?
I have a couple of close friends who are/have been really poorly and I would set up a page for a charity of their choice.
Does someone close to you have a birthday coming up? If like Natalie you want to surprise them with an amazing gift then head over to Shareagift and start collecting money with friends for an unforgettable birthday present!
