Evite® Donations Reaches $5MM in Charitable Contributions
Press Release – LOS ANGELES (January 9, 2018) – Evite, the leading digital service for bringing people together, today announced its Evite Donations feature has enabled over $5 million in charitable contributions since its launch in September 2015.
Evite Donations, powered by Pledgeling, allows event planners and party hosts to offer guests charitable donations as part of their event options. This service is free, and unlike many online donation-processing services, Evite does not take a fee.
The $5 million milestone was met in part through Evite’s successful “Make More Merry” campaign launched on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017. During the six-week campaign, Evite inspired people to make charitable giving part of their holiday party plans by highlighting six nonprofits. The donations raised for these nonprofits to date through Evite Donations represent the following impacts, based on symbolic donation values:
236,747 disaster victims can be provided with emergency medical supplies for an entire month, through Doctors Without Borders.
175,250 meals can be provided through a network of food banks across the U.S., through Feeding America.
3,160 dogs and cats can be vaccinated and spayed/neutered, through the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
2,187 children can be provided with a new toy, book, and sports ball during the holiday season, through Marine Toys for Tots.
166 children in an urban area can be educated for a year, through Pratham USA.
81 families in the developing world can be provided with access to safe water and sanitation in their homes, through Water.org.
“The success of Evite Donations shows just how much people want to give back, and Evite makes it easier than ever to do so,” said Victor Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Evite. “With Evite’s new features, hosts can text invitations and guests can donate right from their phones.”
