Pass It Forward Gifts provides shoppers with an online shopping experience that leaves them feeling good. Purchasing a gift through the site generates ongoing donations for four wonderful Australian charities, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Pass It Forward Gifts aims to build a community that spreads generosity and makes a positive difference in our communities, uniting people through their desire to do something good. The site offers customers the opportunity to select which charity their donation will go to with five per cent of the sale donated to their chosen charity.

An Australian owned and run business, Pass it Forward Gifts sources quality products made in Australia to support local businesses. The gifts are also sourced from developing communities or created by the charities themselves, meaning all proceeds go back to the organisation.

Pass it Forward Gifts founder Betty Zeritis is an active volunteer and believes in compassion and generosity as the way forward for a brighter and better future.

“A simple act of kindness can brighten someone’s day, give them hope and lift their spirit,” Betty explained as the reason behind her online store.

Betty and her team admire and support the work of the specially selected Australian charities by donating a percentage of every sale to them, with the help of their customers. These four charities are Quest for Life Foundation, ClothesLine Incorporated, Inala and Kids for Life.

Donations help fund crucial support programs such as disability enterprise initiatives, research into childhood illness, healing and care services for people living with cancer and essentials for the homeless. Pass It Forward Gifts is an online shopping experience that will leave you feeling good.

Pass It Forward Gifts customers can also make a personal donation directly to the charity of their choice.

“It’s all about the giving, whether it be to a friend or to a person truly in need, it's so important to help others,” Betty said.

Products on the site include Inspirational books, cds and dvds, jewellery and accessories, health & beauty, ethical kids clothing, eco friendly and organic products, kids learning, gift vouchers and more. The online shopping site has a safe and secure payment system, as well as a 100 per cent money back guarantee, giving customers peace of mind as they shop in the comfort of their own home.

Pass It Forward Gifts invites customers to join their community through an e-newsletter, blog and social networking, where they can engage and follow the success of their joint effort to make a change. Have a look at the charity donations counter on the website to see customers’ collective efforts and the donations they are generating together for four very worthy causes.

Betty hopes that people will enjoy not only the beautiful selection of gifts on the website, but also the community feel and social contribution of doing something good for others. "I encourage everyone to find a way to help others. Even a simple smile can make a difference," Betty added.
