Start a meal page to easily organize a group gift of dinner. Invite friends, extended family, and co-workers to give home-cooked love.
Meal pages are both beautiful and easy to use. As an example, see how Pippa might have set up a page for Princess Kate. 😉
Create a page in a minute. From your admin page, you can:
- Add a message and upload a photo (optional).
- Share by email, Facebook, or any method.
Donors can add a message, remain anonymous, and give as little as $10.
Notifying your recipient
Set your notification date a few days in the future to give time for friends to give.
The morning of your notification date, we'll send an email and text (optional) to your friend of their gift.
You'll see the status of your notification email on your admin page (e.g. Sent, Opened, or Bounced).
You'll get notified if your email bounced or is unopened after a few days with the option to resend.
Frequently asked questions
