Our goal is simple: Make group gifting easy and awesome. We've been working with parents, teachers, coaches, PTA members, and principals for quite some time now and they've really helped us design a product that we're happy to say does just that. We're on a journey and this is just the beginning. Our team is passionate about continuing to create a service and a web experience that works the way people's lives do, and this belief motivates every aspect of our business, our designs, and our culture.
