Here at Mouths of Mums we are always on the lookout for ways to help busy Mums and we thought this was worth sharing!
The new GroupPrezzie online tool is sure to be a blessing in any busy persons life!
Anyone who has had to organise a group gift for a milestone birthday, teacher, coach or even their own child will appreciate this new website which allows people to contribute to a group gift and leave a personal message without the hassle!
The idea began when busy Mum, Rachel Troy, was heading out for her first meditation class in the hope that it would help calm her crazy life bringing up three kids and juggling all the activities that accompany life as a mum.
She explains, “While struggling to reach my meditative state, the teacher encouraged us to “embrace the noise, let it run over you, don’t fight it”.” Instead, I was doing a mental check list of things to do! Item one was to organize a group gift for my 8 year old daughter’s friend. It seemed a good idea at the time but now I had to chase everyone for their money!”
And so began her idea to make the time consuming process of money collecting into a simple online system – taking the hassle away from the joy of gift giving.
GroupPrezzie was born.
GroupPrezzie was conceived and created in anticipation of improving the process of collecting money from a group. It makes the process more practical, less time consuming and easy for everyone involved.
Whether it’s an end of season thank you for the footy coach, Xmas gift for your child’s teacher, a designer handbag for your girlfriends 40th or to help your ten year old son save for an Xbox, GroupPrezzie allows you to organize your group of family and friends to contribute via credit card to a group gift collection. It’s the central payment point and communication platform. It’s secure, collaborative and fun! Once the money is collected, you can take it and buy whatever you like on or offline!
