It is fair to say that Teachers have had a rough time in 2020. If there was ever a reason to say thank you then this holiday season is the perfect time. Especially now with what we know after home schooling, what an amazing group of (patient) people teachers are!
A group gift is the perfect way of giving your child's teacher, a gift that they deserve and to make them feel appreciated.
GroupTogether takes the hassle out of organising a group gift, card or money collection.
Created in 2015 by two Sydney mums, it is a way to give better and with less waste. Since inception almost 500,000 Australians have used GroupTogether to make someone's day.
How Does It Work?
A group of parents, friends or even family share a link, where each person can easily click on to chip in some money, and add a personal message, including a picture if they like, and it is printed up on a beautiful card.
All this can be done via text, Whats App or email and it takes only 2 minutes to create this link to share. You can keep track of everyone who has contributed and send reminders.
When all the money is collected, it can be withdrawn to buy a special gift, or you can purchase a voucher through GroupTogether. They have vouchers from all the major retailers.
Research has shown that a voucher is the number one gift that all teacher's want. And receiving a gift card inside a card with special messages and photos from your group, will make it personal and a very special keepsake for the teacher. You can even leave a cute photo of your child with a message from them.
Not Just For Teacher's Gifts
GroupTogether can work for any group gift!
It is group giving without the hassle, by making it easy to collect money for group gifts. No more chasing up or getting left short.
It is perfect for a friend's birthday, work farewell or even a baby shower.
What Other Important Things Do I Need To Know?
The card is special and FREE. Not everyone that 'signs' the card needs to contribute money either. You can also set an amount to contribute or leave it up to each individual.
The gift card can be chosen by your group, or even left up to the receiver to choose for themselves.
You can print the card or send it digitally. There is a digital gift box that opens to make it feel special.
You can split the money between several people or several gifts or withdraw some or all of the money.
When you use the money collected to give a gift card or hamper or flowers from one of GroupTogether's retail partners, there are no fees. Every cent you collect goes to the gift.
