Appreciation brings communities together. We help make it happen with easy group-gifting in less than 5 minutes.

Here’s How It Works

1 – Create

Create an Appreciation

Pick a date, such as the last day of school or the day of the big game, for your Appreciation. On this day, the recipient—a teacher, coach, the entire school, all the teams of a league, or anyone you can think of—receives messages and a cash balance they can redeem for eGift Cards.

2 – Invite

Invite Your Contributors

As the organizer, you invite contributors to the Appreciation using template emails or SMS text messages—simply send the secure link to the participants with just a few clicks. Every contributor can write a note, share photos, and provide a monetary gift to the recipient.

3 – Done

Appreciation Delivered

On Appreciation Day, the recipient receives a digital notification with a secure link to view their messages, photos, and balance of their gifts. Recipients can convert that balance to eGift Cards from brands of their choice. We store the albums to allow recipients to view and share those memories any time.
