"I got emotional yesterday, teared up, and haven’t been able to shake it ever since. I signed up to give a holiday gift to a family in need through the Geenees platform and was matched with two families.
Two single mothers. And their lists literally broke my heart. Socks. Underwear. The most basic things that I buy for my kids without thinking twice. And short stories of their struggles because of the pandemic, because of job loss. Everyone keeps saying that we are all in the same boat but we are not. It’s the same storm but our boats are different. And I just got a reminder to be kinder, have more empathy, and help more. Thank you for this reminder through your meaningful work. "
A Donor on Geenees
"The Geenees system helped us to deliver an effective way for us to create a wishlist, and for companies and individuals to purchase products through the app. This allowed us to funnel the toys to our office delivery - saving us much time in the process.
The Geenees team have been great to work with - understanding what we are looking for, as well as making changes to help adapt to our specific needs at YSM.
In total we were able to get 260 toys for our Toy Market bought through the Geenees app, which means that goes into the hands of 260 children for the Toy Market. "The whole donating process from beginning to end was so easy!" (donor). What we loved most about the Geenees app is it allowed us to put our toy choices in one location, and then coordinate with our families.
The customization to help us and understand our needs was great as they continue to expand their system. Thanks so much to the Geenees team. It was a great joy to work with the Geenees team who were so helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive along the way."
Jeff Abraham, Manager,
"Working with the Geenees team was an absolute pleasure... I especially appreciate the time that they took to really understand our needs and create an app experience that matched our culture and operating processes. I would strongly recommend the Geenees app to anyone that is seeking an attractive platform that makes gifting a fun and seamless process.”
Health & Wellness Manager
"Being a non-profit childcare organization has had many challenges this year. One of these challenges is making sure children in our care that need the extra assistance at Christmas time are taken care of and ok. The Geenees process was so easy to do. I simply introduced my families to the Geenees app and they were able to do everything on their own with ease, privacy and dignity. Thank you Geenees. Christmas for my families that you helped are so grateful."
