Do you really CARE?

Watch our Video Now -> www.youtube.com/watch

So many social networks out there promise better interaction with users and a more social world. But do you think that is a reality? People use social media to keep in touch with their friends and share content but do you think that is making a difference in the world?

Not really. Social media isolates humans in way that many of them don’t feel empathy and compassion anymore….so at Get My Wish our CEO Paula Stewart Mom of two little girls wanted to really CARE and we re-designed Get My Wish (which was a charitable wish list website tool 3 years ago) and make something a lot more meaningful that really makes an impact in the world.

It is simple! Just create the ONLY social media profile that really CARES about any issues and causes you want your friends and family to know and share it with the world. It is like a snowball effect the more you share it the more impact we make and the more people shift their attitude about the world and the causes that need help and support.

When you create a profile you can add a wish list in it with your Gifts (products that give back to charities in our partner’s area) and Causes (social issues you want to support).

Here are some interesting facts:

  • 89% of consumers would be likely to switch brands (if quality and price held constant) for one that's affiliated with a charity, compared with 80% in 2010 and 66% in 1993.
  • 54% of consumers bought a product with a social and/or environmental benefit, compared with 41% in 2010 and 20% in 1993.

Here is what you can do:

-Set up a free profile with your interests. What do you really CARE about? Poverty? Animals? Clean water? Tell the world out there.

-Go to our partners section with products that GIVE BACK a big chunk to many charities and add them to the wish list in your profile we have plenty of products for women, men, baby, animals and more! Tell your friend to check your wish list for your birthday and other occasions.

-Add your causes to your profile too so people can relate to them and make an impact too. So if you don’t want a gift for your birthday just give it up and tell people to donate the money to the causes that you care about! How awesome is that???

-Share your thoughts, events, articles and more from your feed. (COMING SOON!)

-Search others by name, email, interests or causes they support so you can make a difference together? So do you care about animals? Search other with the same interests and follow them. (COMING SOON)

-Share your public or private profile with the world easily.
