Twopresents offers an innovative online invitation platform that allows you to turn your celebration into an occasion to do good and get your perfect gift at the same time. It’s simple: send your invitations through the Twopresents website and let your guests know that instead of bringing gifts, they have the option to contribute money online towards a charity your child is supporting and one meaningful gift he/she is saving for. When the party is over, you will receive one portion of the funds to buy your child’s chosen gift and the other portion goes to your nominated charity. Visit www.twopresents.com to plan your perfect party!
Using the Charitable Choice online platform, you can set up a personalised giving page to raise funds to support up to three charities of your choice. Celebrate your special occasion in a meaningful way by appealing to friends and family to support your favourite cause. A variety of Charity Gift Cards are also available to suit every occasion. Gift Cards are a great way to make a charity donation on behalf of another person, yet enabling them to select the charity that benefits. All donations made are tax deductible in Hong Kong.
