So many of us have too much stuff – much of it gifts for birthdays and other occasions. And the more we accumulate, the harder it is for our family and friends to come up with really meaningful new gifts.
If we could somehow transfer all this surplus to people who really need it, we could simplify our lives and create something that will go on improving the world long after the gifting occasion has passed.
These are thoughts I’ve heard a lot lately, and it’s why I’m so excited to introduce our new Donate Your Birthday feature. Here’s how it works:
- Add your email here so we can send you a reminder when your birthday is near. (You won’t receive any other emails besides the birthday reminder.)
- If you’re one of the first 500 to add your email (and you have not already lent with us), we’ll send you a $10 Zidisha donation gift card as a token of thanks.
- At your next birthday, you can start a birthday page with our easy template, and ask your family and friends to donate there in lieu of gifts. 100% of the donations from your birthday page will go to Zidisha entrepreneurs, and once repaid will be continuously recycled into new loan projects.
