Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Move over Wrapp, today CountMeIn is rolling out over 100,000 non-profits into its social gifting platform, enabling consumers to give the gift of social good and responsibility this holiday season and beyond.
Through a partnership with The Social Giving Network, a solution that facilitates online charitable donations via social networking sites, CountMeIn brings the community a way to organize a gift as a donation to their favorite charities.
Within CountMeIn’s platform, anyone can create a charitable gift donation and promote it to their social channels on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. The unique story here, is that CMI users can collaborate on a donation with a group of friends, family or colleagues, as CountMeIn provides a clever purchasing feature that allows multiple users to “chip-in” on the purchase of one gift, or the greatest present imaginable, a donation that helps someone in need.
What’s more? Contributors of the charitable gift receive a tax receipt emailed to them, instantly.
Sending a gift to someone this holiday season in the form of a donation is a truly heartfelt gesture, and with the use of CountMeIn’s intelligence tool users can match their friends’ or family members’ “likes” and interests, to find the most relevant charity to make a contribution.
“Charitable giving and social gifting are two of the most social activities which people regularly engage in. In fact, according to The 2011 Nonprofit Social Network Report, 89% of non-profits have a Facebook presence,” said Ronen Lazar, Co-Founder & Chief Strategist of CountMeIn.
CountMeIn’s philanthropic initiative was designed to create a seamless, effortless solution for the community by providing a collaborative experience that will drive aid and increased online presence for non-profit organizations.
What does one buy the person who has everything? “A donation in their name is a perfect, feel good fit,” said Jeff Saul, Co-founder of CountMeIn. “We feel our collaboration charity tool is a great fit for celebrities and those fortunate influencial people who can utilize our donation 'chip-in' feature to encourage their fans and followers to help a non-profit together as a group,” said Jeff Saul.
Running in parallel with CountMeIn’s international mall housed on Facebook, today’s announcement will expand CMI’s product offering with a myriad of wonderful charities in need of funding.
