I love givetwig because it give me a unique opportunity to donate to wide variety of charities, some of them I’d have never found on my own. Kristen is doing a brilliant job of introducing new charities every week. I’ve learned so much about these wonderful non-profits and the work they do around the world.

The founder saw a way to aggregate lots of small investments, engage the audience, and channel 100% of the proceeds to great causes. What a great way to create a network effect in the nonprofit world and at the same time provide exposure to a bunch of charitable organizations. Congratulations to getting this off the ground and here is to a great 2017!

givetwig is a fabulous organization and what makes it so, is its simplicity. The Founder, Kristen, has done a great job of finding organizations that are personal to her community. This makes the work that much more special. It is such an easy way to give and make a difference - easier than buying a cup of coffee. Opening the emails on Monday is just a great way to start the day and gives you such perspective to start your week.

givetwig is the most unique way to make a positive impact. You set up a weekly amount of any denomination and the collective power of the group can change lives.
The connection to the groups givetwig supports feels personal and well thought out. While I give a small weekly amount ($5), I do feel that it is helping. I love the stories and the weekly dose of good karma. Every Monday morning, my bank alerts me of the deposit, reminding me that a new organization is being helped this week. Many of the organizations I never would have found on my own. Everything about it seems well thought out. I don't feel that the money is wasted on mailings, or stickers or notepads that you get with other non-profits trying to raise money. The money is going where it is needed without any of the unnecessary stuff.

What a unique and wonderful way to fund many different charities and organizations! The founder takes no salary and her family donates the cost of running the nonprofit, so every penny of our contribution goes to the worthy , vetted cause each week.

I love reading how we are affecting so many different lives each and every week of the year.

Givetwig is an extraordinary organization in so many ways. Not only does givetwig allow people to give at any level, but it also passes on 100% of it's donations each week to wonderful non-profits. Every Monday I look forward to the givetwig email telling me about the non-profit of the week. I feel great about what I'm giving and I love learning about the many amazing non-profits and the work they will will do with the givetwig donation. Bottom line: big impact, lots of warm and fuzzies.

I love that I am able to donate to a wide variety of charities that have been vetted by the organization, and that I get an email each week that tells me about the charity that my donation is supporting. Givetwig makes it so easy to donate - I pick an amount that I am comfortable with donating each week, and Givetwig does the rest! Such a wonderful and easy way to give back to multiple communities.

Givetwig is an incredible organization! There are many donors who give money (anything from $1 to $100 weekly) that is aggregated to support a nonprofit each week. The givetwig founder sends an inspirational and detailed e-mail about the organization of the week each week. It is one of the highlights of my week to read the e-mail. I learn about really amazing nonprofits and it's a weekly reminder of the importance of giving!

I love givetwig because it gives donors the opportunity to learn about, and support, many different causes (knowing they have been vetted). More importantly, though, givetwig's model of small, regular donations is testament to the fact that when we come together, we can have a significant impact.

givetwig's weekly emails and stories of the organizations we are helping are incredibly compelling; they also introduce me to charities I've never heard of and, on multiple occasions, have inspired me to visit an organization's website to learn more. These emails are also interesting, heart-warming, always personal, and fun to read -- perfect way to start my week!
