General

Little Sharers is an online children’s party planning service with a charitable gift giving program.

We believe that Little Sharers offers benefits to all our users.

Firstly, our children learn about social giving and awareness of social issues of all kinds. An easy and fun way for our children to fundraise for charity!
Secondly, by contributing to a group gift, you know that the birthday child will receive their dream present – No more wastage or duplicates – their perfect gift!

For us busy parents, no more second guessing, no more running out last minute to buy a gift. Simply contribute to a gift fund on our site and know that your donation is going half to charity and half towards a perfect gift.

For the charities, we are excited to offer a platform both to fundraise and to raise awareness of their work and projects.

It could not be easier. In 5 simple steps, you can create a party, and your guests can RSVP and then contribute to your gift in 3 easy steps! Couldn’t be easier for us busy mums.
