Giving2Gether.org today announced that it has unveiled its new website, a platform which it dubs, "an engine for change". Through this website anyone can make purchases with popular retailers at no extra cost, while generating contributions to a nonprofit or school of their choice. To celebrate the new site launch, Giving2Gether.org is also offering members cash back on purchases for an introductory period.
"We're excited to provide this new opportunity for nonprofits and schools across the country." said founder Vince Martin. "There's certainly a need there, and quite honestly we believe that there's a need among givers. Many people would love to contribute to making the world a better place and to feel the satisfaction that comes with giving. With Giving2Gether.org, they can achieve this simply by shopping as they normally do. There's no extra cost and it only requires a mouse-click."
The site currently features over 137 popular retailers -- a number which continues to increase. Additionally, 47 nonprofits are currently registered and the Giving2Gether.org database contains over 97,000 K-12 schools. The latter number represents virtually every school in the country.
"We have a special message for those on the front lines, educating our country's children. We want parents, teachers and communities across the country to know that we're with you. We know of the teachers who sacrifice and spend their own money on classroom materials. We know that you see needs that are sometimes unmet because of a simple lack of resources. We'll, we're here now. We support you 100% and we're thrilled to offer our service completely free to you. You have a new partner -- one that is commited to your success and ultimately to those whose lives you are touching."
Giving2Gether.org also allows its nonprofits and registered teachers to create projects directly on the site. These projects can range from specific healthcare initiatives to providing classroom materials to students. This allows givers who shop for causes to know exactly how their support is making a difference in real lives.
Additionally, the website places an emphasis on being both fun and useful. Through such features as personal wish lists that can be sent to friends, money-saving special offers, and a multi-retailer product search engine, members can save money and time while having fun.
"At the end of the day, you've had fun shopping and exchanging your Giving2Gether.org Christmas lists with friends and family. You've saved money and time and received cash back. You did all of this while helping a child to read or a family to heal. How can it get any better than that?"
Giving2Gether.org is the new website which allows anyone to contribute to a nonprofit or school simply by shopping online as they normally do, at no extra cost. A unique innovation allows registered organizations to create specific projects for which they are raising funds, allowing givers to understand exactly how their contributions are helping. The site launched in November, 2004 and features 137 retailers while providing support for 47 nonprofits and over 97,000 schools nationwide.
