Last year, we profiled OrderAhead, the app that simplifies the process of ordering take out. This holiday season, the company has added a very commendable feature by using their technology to help you give to those in need.
“OrderAhead to Give” was a virtual food bank launched in November that enabled people to donate anything from a can of soup to a 17-pound turkey with just a few clicks. Due to its success, they’ve decided to launch “OrderAhead Santa,” a simple way to give less fortunate children a surprise Christmas gift. Whether it’s a soccer ball, an art kit, a doll, or a multitude of other goodies, OrderAhead is making it possible for anyone to be Santa Claus this Christmas.
Donations will be made to Toys for Tots, an organization that gives new toys to children at Christmas, and First Book, an organization that gives new books to children from low-income families to better enrich their education.
No more having to wait in line at the toy store, haul boxes, or coordinate a pickup. OrderAhead will pick up the donated gifts and ensure their delivery to the organizations and the children they support. Donating is now super easy and tax deductible. Hurry though, there is a small window of time to do a huge deal of good, donations can be made between today through Thursday December 19. Click here to donate!
