Anyone who's ever participated in spearheading a group-gift organization effort knows that it's about as successful as herding cats. Not only does it require calling each individual person, selling them the gift-giving spiel, getting giver opinion and collecting contributions, but it also inevitably means keeping tabs on who still owes what and who hasn't responded to your countless voicemails, emails and smoke signals. Don't even get me started on coordinating the card signing, picking up the decided upon gift, and then being left with the remaining balance on the credit card.
From: Everyone feels your frustration and came up with a way to put the joy back into group giving occasions with a thoughtful and convenient site that's simple to use from start to finish. By providing givers with just one gift option, the almighty and universally-appealing gift card from popular brand-name stores, From: Everyone provides users with organizational tools to invite other givers with a handy-dandy email form, manage individual contributions, and when it's all said and done, send the gift off with a simple click. Organize or participate at your own convenience since all contributions are confidential, and create your own greeting on behalf of the group, no time-consuming card pass-it-ons required.
