Do Better by Doing Good, has always been a good idea it’s my mission to make a difference. “Feeding the hungry one pie at a time.”
Saying this it also means to be supporting local causes, not just charities.
Recently I was asked to donate to a business for their office party. Usually in this circumstance it’s someone I know or I see a value of doing this I may. Asking another business to give, when they have a budget or should at least buy the products (pies) or ask for a discount. She wasn’t willing to buy. This to me is not supporting a local business and I didn’t feel there was any value in participating in her office party.
Giving Donations is something every business goes through and needs to decide for themselves what is going to work for them. I discovered SmallGyfts via a forum when I asked the question about how do other companies give donations?
SmallGyfts provides an easy solution to give and do good. The SmallGyfts app (download it wherever you get your apps from) gives you this same capability. You can offer donations to your customers’ charities as an alternative to offering discounts. Donations are a great incentive for your customers.
As a business
+ Giving back to charities is great PR for your business
+ Charities will send their supporters to shop with your business
+ You can help to improve your community by supporting local charities
+ You can give more when shoppers buy more
Barry said “They got started as Amazon boost their sales by offering customers the ability to earn a portion of what they spend as a donation for their charity. This motivates charities to market this Amazon service and encourage their supporters to shop with Amazon because it helps them to raise money.”
Why not offer something similar for local businesses? It solves my problem of giving to everyone who asks for a donation. I can say, YES! Download the app and start giving.

My offer is for every pie you buy I’ll donate $1. to your cause. This way I can support more causes while I get supported via more sales. I used to give $1.00 to the local food pantry in Sedona, people really appreciated the donation. Sometimes if I had any pies left over I would donate them too. (this didn’t happen very often).
