Do you feel the holiday buzz in the air? Is your inbox full of donation requests? Then it must be that time again - the annual Season of Giving is here starting #GivingTuesday (11/28) through New Year’s Eve! Through charitable giving, your business can leave a positive impact and help change the world.

If you or your business are looking for how you can support a cause this holiday season, check out the 4 opportunities below or reach out to our team for a free consultation to explore how Pledge can help. Our technology makes it easier than ever to begin giving to any cause you care about - and it's quick to get started.

Pledgeling is proud to be your trusted partner for holiday giving all season long to help make a difference in the world, as recently featured in The New York Times. Having raised over $7 million in donations to-date for thousands of nonprofits, we are grateful to businesses of all sizes that partner with us to make meaningful impact in the world, such as the real-time metrics you see here on our Impact Page. There’s more work to do - and there’s an exciting opportunity this holiday season for you & your business to give back, too!

Below are 4 examples of easy ways to give now:

  1. USE GIVE & GROW, our new 5-star rated Shopify app, to collect donations through your Shopify store for a cause or nonprofit of your choice. For a limited time, Give & Grow is free to install on any Shopify store and takes less than five minutes to get started. Now your store & your customers can truly help change the world

2. PLEDGE YOUR NEXT EVENT to a charity of your choice by using Evite's online invitations. We partnered with Evite to launch a campaign to help thousands of event hosts across the country "Make More Merry" this holiday season! If you add one of the six nonprofits featured here to your event invitation, then the donations made by your party guests will be displayed on this page in real-time in terms of the impact they're facilitating in the world. It's free to use on any Evite invitation, including birthdays, holiday parties, New Years Eve celebrations & more! Check it out.

3. LAUNCH YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER page for a cause of your choice. Select the nonprofits that you want to support, set a fundraising goal, and watch the donations track in real-time on your custom page. Create your very own landing page with a custom layout, as shown in the image below and here for our #AnguillaStronger hurricane recovery campaign with the Four Seasons Resorts & Residences. Contact our team to learn more.

4. PROMOTE MOBILE GIVING across your brand for a cause you want to support. You can easily support any of the thousands of text-to-donate campaigns that we provide for nonprofits across the country - and we can help you decide which campaign is right for your brand. See an example: text HUNGER to the number 707070 to donate to Feed A Billion whose mission is to provide nutritious meals to a billion people by 2020, an initiative supported by Tony Robbins. Through their amazing work, as little as $0.10 can provide a nutritious meal this holiday season to someone in need, so $5 provides 50 meals.

...So, how will you & your company give back this holiday season? Now is the time to get started and our team is here to help as we celebrate this Season of Giving! Contact us to get started today, and THANK YOU for all you do to make the world a better place.

Happy Holidays & Happy Giving!
