Gift Me Charity is an online donation platform which connects a gift giver to a gift receivers chosen charity. Gift Me Charity does not ever see or handle the money that is donated to your chosen charity. All transactions are processed through PayPal to ensure the complete integrity and security of all donations.

PayPal will process two separate payments as part of each transaction, one transaction for the amount donated to your chosen charity and another for the Gift Me Charity administration fee ($2.95).

Once a donation is processed PayPal holds the money in escrow in a secure account and contacts your chosen charity to enable it to claim your donated funds. Provided the charity is verified it will receive the money into its account immediately.

If your chosen charity is yet to be verified PayPal will as part of its usual commercial process send further emails to notify it of your donation and the steps required for the charity to link a bank account to enable your donation to be deposited. If your chosen charity does not complete these steps within 30 days, then in accordance with PayPal's usual commercial practice 100% of the donation amount will be refunded to your credit card. In this (unlikely) circumstance, please note that the Gift Me Charity administration fee of $2.95 will not be refunded.

The charities which are Deductible Gift Recipients (DGR) will receive a copy of your details to send a receipt to you. You will also receive a copy of the charity details to which you can contact and obtain receipt.

Meet Dina and I, busy professionals living in inner city Melbourne. Being constantly run off our feet with work and family commitments, we found it difficult to find the time to make a difference to our community and the wider world as we would have liked.

Like the majority of people in Australia, we are fortunate to have most of the material things we need to live a very comfortable life, however we noticed that despite this, each year our cupboards continued to be filled with gifted clothes, kitchenware and electrical goods we didn't really need, will never use and in some cases didn't really like.

When we did some simple on-line research, we discovered to our shock that the value of unwanted and unused gifts given annually in Australia at Christmas time alone amounts to more than $700 million.

We had the idea that it would be great if our family and close friends could donate to our chosen charity on our behalf rather than give us material gifts that we don't need and would probably never use.

From these thoughts, Gift Me Charity was born.

Because of the proximity to Christmas, the time of year more than any other when family and friends want to give meaningful gifts to the important people in their lives, we set about a challenge to raise $1 million dollars for charity in 30 days.

Please create a profile and help us meet our challenge and make a difference to the world we live in today.
