When your sibling are all grown up and starting their own families, it becomes less important to buy the perfect gift for one another and more important to spend time together. Of the course, the kids are different, enjoying the magic of the season, but as adults the real gift is time together. This realization has impacted the concept of holiday giving. Fortunately, it is more common that siblings and adults within a family would rather help a family in need than buy each other something that they likely could do without.
Charities are making it easy
Charities have begun to put together packages and gift catalogs such as Adopt -A-Family, Community vegetable garden, or School in a Box that make it easy for a family to make a large donation that makes a significant difference to those on the receiving end.
As a family, small contributions between several people add up to a large sum that has the potential to significantly impact the livelihood and well-being of another family. What a great Christmas gift to give one another, to open your hearts to others in need.
Coordinating the Donation
Coordinating this type of thing can be a bit of a pain since the initial coordinator would have to collect the monies for each individual contributor. We understand how busy the holidays can be. Eventastic makes it really easy for you to share the holiday donation plan and collect the donations.
1. Create an event on Eventastic – Include any details such as the date you would like to have the donations by, who will be benefiting and how.
2. Add donation options and set your goal so your family can send their financial contributions
3. Share the event with your family. To share it with more people or have the family pass it on, make the event public.
Once the donations are collected, check out and make the group donation to the charity!
