Most importantly, when someone gives a gift of the1000best they are giving the positive emotions of esteem, respect, love, honour and really showing how much they care!
Melb, VIC (PRWEB) July 13, 2007
As the recent Live Earth concert has shown, there is a growing realisation and focus on the need to reduce our individual footprint on our planet and to live in a more sustainable way. Every year billions of dollars are spent on gifts and gift giving and a huge percentage of these gifts contribute to landfill and to carbon pollution. One company, ValueWeavers Pty Ltd has addressed this issue by developing a social networking website http://www.the1000best.com that provides a means of gifting positive emotions in an environmentally friendly way.
A Revolution in Gift Giving
People give gifts to show they care and to recognise, reward and acknowledge others and make them feel special. Traditionally these gifts have included; cards, presents, medals, certificates, etc. The majority of these all have an environmental impact as a result of their manufacture, transport, packaging or redundancy. All contribute to the climate crisis. As Grant Soosalu, the developer of a new virtual gift web site points out "The time is right for a move to a revolution in gift giving -- the giving of a virtual gift that goes right to the heart and the1000best.com delivers such a gift".
http://www.the1000best.com is a new social networking website -- a Social Reward and Recognition Space -- designed to showcase and amplify positive values and excellence in the world by encouraging people to celebrate, recognise and reward others by nominating then as one of the 1000 best in the whole, wide world.
the1000best takes gift giving to a whole new level -- we provide a means for people to gift positive emotions that go straight to the heart of the receiver. Our 'virtual' gifts of a nomination to the1000best are:
- Totally Unique -- they are really, really special.
- Absolutely personal -- the giver creates the gift tribute.
- Great Value -- an inexpensive gift that costs less than a tank of petrol, a dinner out or a good bottle of wine -- and lasts for much, much longer.
- Doesn't Destroy Trees -- as an electronic 'virtual' gift, no trees are destroyed in its making and there's no landfill from packaging! So it's an ecological gift.
- Quick -- buy a nomination and within hours your special person will have the gift in their 'hands', great idea for those last minute presents.
- Sent across the World -- it's a gift that can be emailed to the other side of the world -- no transport or warehousing required.
- Goes to the Heart -- When you give a gift you are really trying to tell and show the person you care -- the1000best goes straight to the heart of gift giving! It says "You are special! I care about and appreciate you!" It really is the ideal gift to show you care.
- Enhanced on a daily basis -- once gifted, the giver can continue to enhance the gift by 'boosting' their special person on a daily basis or by sending further tributes just to remind their special person just how special they are.
About Our Gifts
As the name implies there are only 1000 spots available in each of the1000best domains (a specific group such as the 1000best friends, the1000best mums, the 1000best dads, the 1000best high achievers, the 1000best pets to name a few). Because there are only 1000 in each domain it truly makes the gift special.
A gift nomination can be purchased for a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription period. For example: for Fathers Day, a family may purchase Dad a 3-month nomination as one of the1000best Dads in the world -- how special is Dad going to feel for those three months?
Each gift nomination includes:
Recognition -- the person receiving the gift knows that someone thinks and feels they are 1 of the1000best in the world. You can't be much more special than that.
PersonalSpace page -- a personal web page where the special person can share their thoughts on what being 1 of the1000best in the world means to them.
Blog space -- a space where the special person can record events and happenings.
Tribute page -- a space where the giver and others can leave messages of congratulations, encouragement, thanks and praise for the special person. This means your gift continues to grow and live on for your special person reminding them everyday for the whole subscription period of 3, 6 or 12 months how special they are.
Boosts -- the opportunity for the special person to be boosted and voted by the public as the No 1 nominee in the1000best category.
The possibility of the special person being selected as one of the Bestofthe1000best -- a domain reserved for only the best of the best in the world based on public vote
As Grant Soosalu, the developer of the1000best says, "Most importantly, when someone gives a gift of the1000best they are giving the positive emotions of esteem, respect, love, honour and really showing how much they care!"
