LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On #GivingTuesday, November 28, Evite, the leading digital service for bringing people together, is launching its "Make More Merry" campaign to inspire people to make charitable giving part of their holiday party plans.
Evite Donations, powered by Pledgeling, enables event planners and user 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.
During the campaign, Evite will highlight six non-profits over a period of six weeks to inspire event hosts to pledge their events to causes.
The featured non-profits are:
American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)
Doctors Without Borders
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
On Evite's Make More Merry page, users can see the impact of contributions made to-date, and learn how to use the Evite Donations™ feature. Evite has also included suggested donation amounts based on the impact those donations will have.
"Especially during this time of year, people want to give back," said Victor Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Evite. "Evite Donations makes it easier than ever to spread generosity and joy in the world. With Evite's new text feature, hosts can even text invitations and their guests can donate right from their phones. Even the smallest donations can make an impact."
Evite expects to hit the $5 million mark in total dollars raised for charity through Evite Donations by the end of 2017.
