Class gift for the teacher, gift for your parents from all the kids, a friends birthday or retirement….think of all those times where a group gift is appropriate yet always such a pain to organize! I recently learned about FrumUs.com (yes, it’s a u NOT an o in their spelling of from.)
Starting a collection is very easy on FrumUs.com
. Some basic steps are outlined, including the recipients name, adding your PayPal account info, collection end date and more. In no time you’ll be ready to “promote the envelope”. Promoting the envelope is the electronic way of passing the envelope around the office to collect money for a baby shower gift, retirement gift, etc, except, it is done for you online! How awesome is that?!?! A message in your colleagues email inbox will alert them of how and where to contribute to the gift. When you reach your collection end date you can easily transfer the money into your bank account and use it as needed!! No more cashing random checks, counting change or feeling awkward asking the janitor for a few bucks!
Go try it out and let me know what you think!!!
