ILLI, a new gift-giving app, has partnered with several charities to rethink how donors can get involved this holiday season.
Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/09/2020 --This week, ILLI announced their Nonprofit Christmas Wishlist Campaign, a new program that they are piloting with several nonprofit organizations. For families who have a tradition of volunteering or giving to charities during the holidays, but aren't quite sure how to get involved this year during the pandemic, this is a new way to donate. ILLI's nonprofit program is designed to let donors purchase specific items online from each nonprofit's wishlist, and have those items shipped directly to the chapter's location.
Participating nonprofits, like Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region, tell ILLI exactly what they need, and ILLI builds a wishlist that their donors can shop from. Nonprofits can also run a fundraiser alongside their wishlist allowing donors to easily add on a cash donation with their gift purchase.
"It's been really heartwarming to see the response from donors knowing that they're buying a gift that will directly benefit a family or child in need." says Jason LeBlanc, CEO at ILLI. "From day one we've always wanted to make charitable giving part of our company culture, so we're really excited to launch our nonprofit program and share that joy of giving with our community."
Features and benefits of ILLI's nonprofit program include:
- Free for nonprofits to use, and 100% of proceeds go to each nonprofit
- ILLI manages shipping logistics so that donors don't have to worry about entering the nonprofit's address during online checkout
- ILLI helps tell the story of each individual chapter so that donors can learn more about the work they're doing in the community
Participating charities this year: Ronald McDonald House of Dallas; Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth; Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region; Illuminate Colorado; Toys For Tots DFW
ILLI's nonprofit program is live now on their website here: iliterallyloveit.com/nonprofits where you can find all the participating nonprofits this year -- ILLI plans to expand this list nationwide as they continue to grow their team.
