Purposit is a new and easy platform where parents invite friends to contribute and fund gifts for their children. Choose the gifts your child really needs to have an exciting life full of experiences and opportunities. Start collecting money early for costly gifts (eg. university or overseas travel) with a cash boost from friends. Channel the money that well-intended friends might spend on unnecessary gifts towards something more useful.
Have you ever worried about how to fund important milestones in your children’s lives like school, travelling or university? Have you ever looked at your child’s room and said to yourself “wow, do we really need all this stuff?” Have you ever wished your friends knew what to give your child for birthdays or Christmas?
To the rescue of most parents, Purposit has arrived! The app allows parents to channel the money that friends might spend on unnecessary/duplicated presents towards more meaningful gifts for their child or children.
