In a New Spin on Charitable Contributions, Evite Postmark Gives Proceeds Back to Both Causes through Custom Digital Invitation Collections
LOS ANGELES, CA – December 17, 2013 – With the holiday spirit in full effect, Evite Postmark (www.postmark.com), Evite’s digital social expression platform, today announced partnerships with Champions for Kids, a non-profit organization that helps give kids the resources they need to thrive, and The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (AJLI) one of the largest and most effective women’s volunteer organizations in the world, to create exclusive custom digital invitations and card collections for members of each community.
“These organizations help millions of people every day,” said Hans Woolley, president of Evite. “So, we’re excited to show our appreciation for both groups by offering customized collections exclusively for their members, with the added bonus of donating a percentage of the proceeds back to each group.”
Supporters of Champions for Kids can currently choose from five digital invitations on Evite Postmark to host their own themed service projects, such as “Season of Giving,” “Bag it Forward” and “Bright Smiles, Bright Futures.” When hosts use these invitations, 50 percent of the purchase price will go back to Champions for Kids to help provide resources for children in need.
“We are excited to increase awareness of Champions for Kids’ SIMPLE Service projects using customized invitations from Evite Postmark and are delighted that half of the proceeds from every invitation will support our programs,” said Ivy LaClair, director of communications for Champions for Kids.
Members of The Junior League can choose from a custom-curated collection of digital invitations and cards on Evite Postmark, designed to provide options for the myriad of fundraising, volunteer and social activities each Junior League conducts in its community. Evite Postmark returns a royalty for each card sent to The Association of Junior Leagues International, to support voluntarism and women’s leadership and empowerment.
“We are honored to be among the not-for-profit organizations working with Evite Postmark,” said Susan Danish, AJLI’s Executive Director. “We look forward to a successful partnership that supports the development of our members, for the purpose of enhancing the social, cultural and political fabric of our civil society.”
