It's never too late to give
Bouxtie recognizes sacrifices made by America's veterans. To honor them, Bouxtie chooses the busiest time of the digital gift card-giving year to raise awareness towards WWP's important programs provided to servicemen and women.
More than 52,000 servicemen and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Bouxtie invites the public in helping WWP work toward their vision of fostering the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history by making a donation before the tax season ends.
Wounded Warriors Project's mission, vision, purpose and core values resonate with the Bouxtie team.
"Bouxtie is all about connecting people and it's the perfect way to show family and friends you care even when you can't be there," said Renato Libric, founder and CEO of Bouxtie. "We often think of service men and women in conjunction with the Bouxtie app because it facilitates sending digital gift cards along with a personalized video or photo to anyone in the United States from anywhere in the world," Libric added.
In many instances, people prefer sending digital gift cards, according to a recent survey conducted by InComm. The survey also found Christmas Eve is the biggest sales day for digital gift cards. The great thing about Bouxtie is that consumers don't need a specific day to send the perfect gift -- they can send it instantly whenever they want, which takes the worry out of postal shipping dates and if a package will arrive on time.
