Save With Shareagift Towards… A Gift For A Rainy Day

We love finding out the different ways in which people use Shareagift. This week we caught up with Rebecca, and she told us about how she used Shareagift to collect money online for her friend’s leaving gift.

What gave you the idea to create a page and start collecting money for your friend Danella?

Our friend Danella has decided to leave Toronto and live in Costa Rica for a year.  She has a large circle of friends and we thought it would be the best idea to pool funds and buy a Visa gift card for her to use as a ‘rainy day fund’ while she is away.

Why did you choose Shareagift?

We chose Shareagift because it allowed us to collect funds from her friends by sharing the direct page link.  You can invite people through email or paste the link on social media.  I like that you can customize your page and add pictures, but most importantly, I love that everyone can see the running total, that way the collection process is transparent.

How helpful has this page been in collecting money together?

It was super helpful as I was able to receive collections from some of her friends that I had never met. Instead of meeting up with friends to collect money, everything was done online.

How much of an impact will this gift have on Danella?

This money is going to provide her with a rainy day fund, she will be extremely grateful as she begins this new adventure in her life.

If you were to set up a new Shareagift page what and who would it be for?

I could see myself setting up a Shareagift page for a friend’s upcoming baby shower.

If like Rebecca you have a friend who is moving away, or if someone is leaving work, a Shareagift page is a great way to collect money online with friends towards an amazing leaving gift, to show them how much you are all going to miss them!

Top 5 Tech Gifts For Grandparents

Save With Shareagift Towards … A Gift For Your Grandparents

Technology seems so intertwined into our daily lives it can be hard to imagine a life without your smartphone, laptop or smart TV. If you don’t keep on top of the latest tech it can be very easy to fall out of the loop. Many elderly people feel that they have missed the boat on technology and chose not to get involved with it. However, there are many tech gadgets that are easy to use and can help with improving health, keeping more active, avoiding boredom and giving relatives peace of mind. With grandparents day fast approaching we have put together a list of our top 5 tech gifts that are sure to bring out your grandparent’s inner techy!

Fitbit

Fitbit is a tool to help you monitor how active you are throughout the day and it also keeps an eye on your health. As we get older it gets more and more important to keep on top of your health and Fitbit tracks steps taken, stairs climbed, distance travelled, calories burned, activity level and sleep quality. Their smart scale can also help you track weight, body fat percentage and BMI with online graphs and mobile tools. This would be a great gift for any grandparent as all they need to do is wear it and you can help them look through their stats and see what needs improving or changing in their daily routine.

telyHD

telyHD is a camera unit that sits on top of your television set and delivers high quality Skype video calls directly to the TV. As long as it is plugged in and your TV is on anyone can get in touch with you via Skype. This is a great idea for grandparents who want to be able to stay in touch with family from across the world but aren’t ready or willing to invest in a computer or tablet. The system is also designed with new users in mind and is very easy to use.

TV Ears

Often with old age comes loss of hearing, TV Ears is a clever little tool that syncs with your TV and allows the user to adjust their own volume and tone while others around them can have the TV at their preferred volume. It is designed to sit just under your chin and is ideal for listening if you are sitting or lying down.

Active Protective

If you are worried about your grandparents falling and injuring themselves then why not get them some active protective garments. The smart garment in the form of a wearable belt detects a fall before you hit the floor and deploys a small airbag to protect your hips from breaking with the imapct. Confused? Take a look at the video to see how it works.

iPad

Last but not least is the Apple iPad! You may not think iPad when shopping for gifts for grandparents however it is surprising how easy people find it to use. With an easy to use interface, touchscreen and a button that you can press if anything goes wrong which will take you straight back to the main menu, it is actually a lot easier to use than a computer. With iPad popularity growing amongst older generations many apps are now appearing which cater to their needs including apps like Pill Reminder Pro, Blood PressureiBP and Pocket Physio. Not to mention the back catalogue of music and film clips available via the YouTube app and social media apps like Skype, which help them keep in touch with the family.

Shareagift can help you save with the family towards an amazing gift this grandparent’s day. We provide an easy platform for you to collect money online for a group gift from the whole family that can either help improve your grandparent’s health, make their life easier or even get them Facebook messaging you!

Kasondra Gets A Birthday Weekend To Remember!

Save With Shareagift Towards … A Relaxing Getaway

This week we spoke to Shadia about her Shareagift campaign to send her friend Kasondra on a birthday getaway! Kasondra works a very busy job and only gets one day off a week so for her birthday, Shadia thought it would be a great idea to get all Kasondra’s friends to chip in towards a long weekend away in the coastal town of Monterey, so she could relax and have a few days to herself. Here’s what Shadia had to say about her campaign and Shareagift experience.

What gave you the idea to create a Shareagift page and start collecting money for Kasondra?

I used Shareagift a few years ago to help raise funds to bring my mother to Lebanon for the first time. She’s first generation Lebanese but had never been! So when I was thinking of Kasondra’s birthday coming up, and I knew I wasn’t going to be in town to help her celebrate, I thought the best thing would be to crowdfund a mini-vacation, as she works far too much and could do with a break. The Shareagift platform worked great before and so I decided to use it again.  

How helpful has this page been in collecting money together?

The page was really instrumental because I could load pictures and links. Being able to share the link via Facebook, Twitter and email was awesome, all the info was right there.

How much of an impact will this money have on your friend?

The gift came at a great time, this is what Kasondra emailed me the other day; 

b0f304e0-1657-4da1-973c-51897538dfd8_0

This is one of the sweetest things anyone has every done. And it makes me feel so loved and supported to see this list of people who helped in this wonderful gift. Just as I was starting to feel a little alone in the world, getting this e-mail and seeing a nice list of people who really are there for me was the perfect reminder that I needed, that I am surrounded by an amazing group of wonderful friends.”

She hasn’t gone on the vacation yet but she will in the fall, I’m going to help her plan it and I’m sure some rest and relaxation outside of our busy lives will be just what she needs.

If like Shadia you think that one of your friends could do with a relaxing getaway, a great birthday or thank you gift or simply a surprise to cheer them up, then head over to Shareagift, create a page, invite friends and start raising money!

Top 5 Gifts For Big Kids

Save With Shareagift Towards… Group Gifts

This week we have picked our top 5 ultimate big kid gifts for those people who never quite let their childhood go.

3Doodler

3Doodler is the world’s first 3D printing pen and came to fruition through a crowdfunding campaign that helped the company get their product onto the market. The 3Doodler is now in its second stage of development with the 2.0 model now available to buy. With this pen the possibilities are endless and you can create anything from toy animals to jewellery, clothing, and replica monuments, a great gift for those creative types.

Air Swimmers

Air swimmers are remote control helium balloons shaped as different fish that fly though the air. If you love scaring people or simply wish you could control a flying fish then this is the perfect gift for you! Unfortunately they are limited to the inside but other than that the possibilities are endless! Fly them around the house, about the office or even on the tube as this video demonstrates!

LED Lit Poi Balls

Poi translates to ball on a string and you will have hours of fun swinging these LED balls around in the dark making all sorts of shapes and funky dance moves! Think of them as sparklers that never go out, they are the perfect gift for anyone who loves to move, dance and just swing balls in the air!

Air Board

The airboard is basically a Segway without the handle bars bit. They take a bit of getting used to but once you have mastered balancing on them and turning corners you can pretty much travel anywhere on them (up to 14 miles) and they are light enough to be easily carried around. If you are looking for a fun and let’s face it lazy alternative to walking or cycling then the Air Board is the perfect gift!

Sky Walker Quadcopter

The Sky Walker Quadcopter is essentially a remote control drone in a ball cage. The machine can fly, drive along the ground and even climb walls! The range is an impressive 50 meters and the cage gives it the protection it needs if you are a first time flyer as the controls take a fair bit of getting used to.

Top 5 Alternative Experiences

Save With Shareagift Towards … An Alternative Day Out

Many weird and wonderful experiences seem to be popping up across the UK this year, last week saw the world’s first Wavegarden open in North Wales! Whether it is for a birthday, stag do or just a random day out it is time to get planning! We have picked out our top 5 alternative experiences across the UK that you and your friends must try this summer!

Tank Paintball Battles

As you can probably imagine this experience involves you riding around with 2 friends in a tank shooting paintballs at the enemy tank. You are taught how to drive the tank by looking through a periscope and how to load, aim and fire the cannon. This is a great group experience for any paintball fan or for anyone looking to let off some steam on the battlefield!

Flyboarding

This is probably the closest you will come to that hover-board that Back To The Future predicted. With flyboarding you will be strapped onto a board, which shoots jets of high-powered water from nozzles at your feet and on your arms allowing you to glide across the water or shoot upwards of ten metres.

Vampire Hunting

In a secret location in the village of Droitwich, you can become a vampire hunter for the day! You will be kitted out and trained by a group of ex-military experts who will prepare you for your vampire hunt. You will then be split into smaller groups and put through a number of different combat scenarios where you will be required to venture out into the streets for rescue and attack missions.

Zombie Blitz

If Vampires aren’t your thing then how about escaping from a hoard of flesh eating zombies? Located in Waterloo tube station this experience is set in 1940 during the time of the London Blitz. You will venture as a group through a number of tunnels and play out different scenarios with characters that you will have to judge whether they are trustworthy or not. If running from zombies, getting trapped in pitch black rooms and being scared silly is your idea of a great day out then this interactive group experience is right down your alley!

Wavegarden

This lagoon, which opened last week in North Wales, allows surfers to try surfing on a number of different waves based on their experience. The technology behind the wave machines allows for perfect waves to be created from 0.7m to 2m high. This is the perfect training ground for surfers who want to be able to learn the basics or to perfect their technique in a safe and natural environment.
