With the holiday season here, life’s everyday pace is speeding up with preparations galore for personal and business activities and events. Everyone is involved at some level in planning get togethers to bring cheer and good wishes to all those around.
It’s the time of year where people express their love and generosity to others whether family, friends or through business ties and community based events. It’s a perfect time of year for giving to those less fortunate and to charities needing your support.
If you, your business or community are planning an event this holiday season, please consider adding a charitable option for those attending and even those unable to attend. It may be a cause that is near or dear to yourself or something relevant in your community that would benefit from the generosity of others.
It’s easy to let attendees know ahead of the event any details of what you would like to raise money for and why. Event attendees not only like to be given the opportunity, but like the ease of giving to something close to home. Let attendees know that their donation whether large or small has the potential to make a big difference in someone’s life.
Eventastic is an innovative platform enabling event organizers to create their online event invite with registration abilities and quickly create and share customizable tickets on their website or any social feeds. Ticketing is just one small part of what we offer our clients in making every event a success. As one of the features, Eventastic gives the event organizer the option of adding a donation button on their event invitation allowing those attending and even those who are unable to attend, to contribute to a cause of the organizers choice.
Simply indicate your intention of adding a donation box to your invite by clicking the donation feature. Upload a logo or relevant picture for your cause with a short description. People viewing the invite can then donate using Visa, Mastercard or PayPal and choose to do so anonymously if they so desire.

Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring mothers and celebrating motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. Mother’s Day means different things to different people. It can be a day of celebrating with your immediate family or a day where extended family get together to celebrate all the moms at different generational levels. It can be a quiet celebration, a larger louder get together, a one on one, or if a long distance relationship is currently the circumstance then maybe a phone call or communication via the computer. (thank heavens for Skype and Face Time!)
For some, Mother’s Day means honouring someone whom they’ve had a maternal bond; maybe a foster mom, or a friend’s mom who has been extra special, or someone who has taken you under their wing and made life that much more enjoyable. And, for some, it is a day of remembering their mom and all the wonderful times they shared even though she is no longer with them.
Though sometimes a call, flowers, or a sweet cupcake and card; often there is a gift given to mom in association to Mother’s Day. We all know Mother’s Day isn’t about the gift or the amount of money involved but more the sentiment and well wishes expressed to the mother(s) whom you cherish. Sometimes distance and number of participants plays a factor in how a family will celebrate and subsequently make gift arrangements.
Considering a group gift is a great way of people coming together to share their feelings in a joint effort while getting mom something that she will love and appreciate. All it takes is one participant to begin the process and others usually truly appreciate being able to contribute towards the gift of choice. Eventastic is a great online platform that does way more than event planning and ticket sales. It also allows you to fill in a template with picture and details of a gift for any occasion and then by sending the link to those involved, they can then open the link and pay online towards the special gift. You can even be more creative by everyone contributing current and past photos with mom for simple enjoyment or to have made into an album on the website.
So whether a piece of jewellery, flowers, wine, day trip etc. Eventastic can help make your family’s gifting experience easier for Mother’s Day and any occasion. Happy Mother’s Day!
If you own a motorcycle or ride with someone who owns one, you most likely will agree there is nothing quite like getting on the bike and riding off with no real destination in mind. It is the feel of the wind in your face, the growl of the engine and experiences during the ride that form the stories you love to share over and over again.
Bikers really don’t need reasons to ride. It is, however, fun when a number of riders can get together and drive alongside each other as a group. The rumble and roar is amplified and the hairs on my arms stand with excitement! I have always enjoyed riding with friends, old and new, and partaking in events where multiple bikes explore new towns, cities, sites and share their love of the open road together. What a great way of meeting new people who also share your excitement with the hobby.
Rides for charity are becoming increasingly more popular. People recognize it is a great way of getting others with similar interests together; contributing some dollars, and giving to a cause near and dear while spending part of a day doing something they love to do. Mega dollars have been raised by putting a ride together and getting the word out so others can share the experience and enjoyment of helping a community. It’s a great opportunity to increase awareness of a cause needing attention and support.
Eventastic is an online platform where you can create your event for free, have all the event details displayed for viewing and use cool video technology and/or photo sharing to add to the excitement of the invite. You can easily sell registration tickets and choose to have people give cash donations to your cause right on your event website. Marketing your Ride for Charity is a breeze by sharing the link through email and all social media channels.
Whether someone has touched your life with Alzheimer’s, Lyme, Cancer, ALS, Parkinson’s, Lupus, etc… you have the opportunity to help make a difference for someone in the future. You may choose to make your ’cause’ a particular topic of need in your community like a family experiencing hard times. Why not take this opportunity and the tools we provide you to make that difference all the while enjoying what you love to do. Share the love.
