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!
