Young Charitable Entrepreneurs Deliver a Personalized and Efficient Way to Give
Embrace the Spirit of Giving Online and Shop to Donate in Minutes

DALLAS – (November 12, 2014) – As the holiday season draws near, Dallas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Giverosity, continues its dedication to helping underprivileged children throughout Texas. With its fresh approach to giving, Giverosity aims to provide an enjoyable, yet efficient way to donate gifts during the hectic holiday season. Giverosity features toy and clothing items online to make it easy to donate anytime from your computer, phone or tablet.

Founded by two young professionals, Taylor Brown and Emily Dawson, Giverosity began with a simple mission – finding a way to give back during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Giverosity has expanded its presence beyond the Dallas-Fort Worth area to Houston, Austin and Chicago in order to reach more deserving children.

Through Giverosity, anyone can go on the site and browse the vast selection of toys and clothing to pick gifts to donate. Since Giverosity is online, busy individuals can skip a trip to the mall and the time it takes to deliver the gifts without sacrificing the opportunity to personally pick out a gift and make someone’s holiday special.

Giverosity and its donors recognize the importance of giving locally and impacting families in need across Texas. Much of this growth can be attributed to the newly formed Development Board, a group of inspired young professionals in various industries coming together to serve their communities and make a difference.  

“As a recent graduate I work long hours and although I wanted to give back, I had a hard time fitting it into my work routine,” said Emily Dawson, an investment analyst at Texas Capital Bank. “With Giverosity, I can browse the toys online during my lunch break, late at night or whenever I have a spare second and pick out the perfect gift.”

In Houston, Giverosity has partnered with Goodwill Houston and in DFW donations will benefit the children at Interfaith Housing Coalition, an organization that provides transitional housing and life coaching to homeless families working to get back on their feet. Giverosity’s charitable partners set up a “Christmas store” where all of the toys that have been donated through the website are set out and the parents can select toys to give their children on Christmas morning. “It’s a boost for them this time of year,” Tina Robertson, the Chief Operating Officer at Interfaith said. “Just to see the smiles on the children’s faces is rewarding enough.”

With a simple click of a mouse, Giverosity gives generous donors the power to spread holiday joy to deserving children that otherwise wouldn’t receive anything.
