Online party invitation service and charity fundraising platform


Launched in 2013, is an online fundraising and invitation platform.  Celebrants or party hosts can send online invitations and choose a charity they would like to support and a gift they would like to collect funds for. Instead of bringing presents, guests have the option to contribute money online towards the chosen charity or the wished gift. When the party is over, Twopresents sends one cheque to the celebrant (to buy the wished gift) and one to the chosen charity. Hence, the name Twopresents: one for you, one for charity. Twopresents also organises visits to the chosen charities so the donors can see how their donations make a difference to the lives of others.

This scale-up project supported by the SIE Fund will be launched in phases to make the platform scalable and to extend its community outreach, especially to the Chinese-speaking general public for greater impact.
