Gifting Dreams

83% of Americans received unwanted gifts in the ’06 holiday season. Some will languish, wasted on a shelf. Some may be regifted. Some will go to a charity bin. But for the most part, such gifting can produce enormous amounts of outright waste.

What if you could help someone build their dream instead?

Here’s a new concept developed locally. It’s kind of like a gift registry, only it’s focused on one goal and builds like Kiva donations. It can be used for any sort of goal that requires funding, from trips to school, furniture to pets, events to technology.

Example dreams

“DreamBank is also built as a community so you can connect and communicate with fellow Dreamers to: follow their progress, share ideas and resources, or just cheer them on.”

Additionally, 10% of transactions support a charity of the Dreamers choice. You’ll see the charity noted under the Dream.

Meaningful gifting, supporting charities and fulfilling dreams. Nice.
