One look at your family calendar (or your fridge doors) and you know it’s almost December: End of year concerts and performances, invitations and sign-up forms, school camp, family BBQs, work parties and of course your Christmas shopping list, it’s hard to keep track of it all! As much as you try to remember everything you will find there is always something you forgot, like the famous ‘teacher gift’ that tends to sneak up on busy parents.
The clever Aussie mamas behind GroupTogether understand that parents are often short of time, which is why they have created a fabulous online service that takes the hassle out of collecting money for a group gift.
GroupTogether is super simple to use, just set up your group collection online and they will take care of the rest. All contributions are safely made online, making it convenient and easy for every parent to chip in a few bucks. Our lives are so busy that we do not have the time to organise collections and to chase and remind other parents, that’s why GroupTogether does the regular reminding for you saving you any awkwardness or hassle.
GroupTogether will then bundle the contributions and transfer all the money to your bank account so you can buy an awesome present that is sure to wow the teacher. Instead of every child spending $10 on yet another mug, box of chocolates or a pot plant, a class of 25 could surprise the teacher with an amazing $250 get-away or shopping spree. You can even print off a card that includes personal messages from all the families who joined in, what a great keepsake!
There is plenty more to love about GroupTogether: Parents can choose to share the love by donating a small percentage of their contribution to charity, there is no paperwork involved making it environment friendly, you can ask all parents to contribute a specific amount (keeping it fair) or allow them to chip in as much or as a little as they can (respecting family budgets), you are never left short changed or out of pocket and, being an online service, GroupTogether is quick and convenient for everyone, including working parents, to use.
