Gifts for Good is reinventing the corporate gift industry by making it the first source of corporate presents with social impact. "We are like a B2B marketplace. We sell products that change lives, made by more than 40 non-profit organizations and social enterprises, to companies that come to us looking for gifts for their employees and customers, "explains CEO and co-founder Laura Hertz. "Our platform helps companies send more meaningful gifts, while supporting these organizations that need to sustain themselves and broaden their reach and impact."
This social enterprise connects charitable organizations with a wide network of companies interested in bulk corporate orders. "Our products are compatible with six categories of causes: childhood, economic development, environment, health, the homeless and women at risk." Gifts for Good follows a relatively traditional e-commerce model: "We buy products made by NGOs and social enterprises as wholesaler and sell them as a retailer."
