Let's not shy away from it. Life can get a bit sh*t. But when a loved one or colleague is struggling, it can be hard to know how to help. Enter 'It Takes a Village'. An easy way to show support with gifts that are genuinely helpful (think cleaning or gardening services, baby sitting or a nice hot meal). Gifts that bring a real sense of relief in tough times (not like an edible flower basket, or a new swaddle... for a third child). With the added benefit of a shareable donation link; you will never have to collect (or... chase) money from your friends again.
Supporting a loved one with a helpful gift is simple. Here's how it works.
Create your Village & spread the word
Create a Village online with your friend's email & postcode. Share the village link to invite the crew to chip in and leave a message of support.
Gift the voucher
Your friend is notified via email that they have a Village gift voucher and some amazing ways to redeem it. This confirms what they have long suspected – that their friends and family are the finest specimens on earth.
All feel a bit better
They redeem their voucher for all the things they really need, at the times they really need them. Spirits will be lifted (literally, if you’re anything like us). Cue relief and warm glow all around.
When someone close to you is going through any number of WTF life situations, including; family illness, injury, cancer treatment, grief.. or even those joyful (but still WTF) experiences of pregnancy and babies, it can feel very isolating for them.
Knowing they're not alone makes a big difference and a supportive group is a great source of strength. In summary: A Village makes it easier when life gets tough.
Meaningful gifts mean less waste
It's official. Genuinely helpful gift vouchers mean more impact for the person you love and less impact on the environment... I mean, has any baby ever worn size 0 sneakers? The world is now full. A lot of this stuff chews up resources, spews out pollution and ends up in landfill. Which is why, wherever possible, we work with businesses and brands that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
