‘CharityBlooms’ on Valentine’s Day as people buy alternative gifts for their loved ones

charityblooms

CharityBlooms has changed the way people give to their loved ones on Valentine’s Day. The pop-up website sells virtual gifts with all the funds going to various charitable organisations instead.

Valentines Day is a globally celebrated day of love. Roses, chocolates and grand gestures are just some of the ways to show someone you love them. CharityBlooms was created to give you an alternative way to tell someone you love them. The platform offers the option to purchase a meaningful, virtual gift that will make a greater impact in South Africa.

Globally the world is shifting and society is becoming more altruistic and generous with their time and money. Giving is the latest trend!

CharityBlooms has hand-selected eleven charities, all of which work to make South Africa a better place. These eleven charities cover a wide variety of causes, meaning, there is something for everyone. Your loved one will receive a virtual gift, a loving message from you and a donation made to a charity in their name.

All funds raised through the platform will be donated to the selected charities. We love this idea as it breaks the commercial cycle and brings back the meaning of giving. Plus it is a bonus if you accidentally forgot to get something…

“Giving is not just about making a donation. It’s about making a difference” – Kathy Calvin
