What is a Bigger Gift on Givealittle?
It’s the season for giving, but most of us want our Christmas gifts to mean more. Socks and chocolates are getting old. The Bigger Gift campaign on givealittle.co.nz is an opportunity to create your very own Givealittle cause page, get together with a group you know and pool online donations to make something big and meaningful happen this Christmas.
Bigger Gifts are usually too ambitious for one person to give alone, but totally achievable when a group of Kiwis give a little together. Work with your friends, family and networks to define a Bigger Gift to celebrate your family, social group or workplace. Encourage people to donate online in lieu of gifts, to celebrate a special achievement or acknowledge the memory of a loved one.
A Bigger Gift might be…
-Bringing someone home for the Christmas holidays or helping send someone home to loved ones
- A community coming together to do something special for a local hero
- A social group, blog community or team of workmates coming together to recognise a unique challenge for a friend or colleague this Christmas
- A family giving to create a special memory or treat for another family member
- Giving to a charitable cause in the memory of a loved one
- Making someone’s dream come true by providing a memorable experience
- Covering the costs of the Christmas lunch provided at a soup kitchen or mission
Any reason to be generous at Christmas is a good enough reason to give. Check out these Bigger Gift pages for inspiration.
