Startup online shopping site and mobile application Shoptivity (www.shoptivity.com) announced today the launch of its “Shoptivity Sharing” campaign along with partner Soles4Souls to provide sustainable jobs, shoes, and clothing to families throughout the world. Through the campaign, Shoptivity, which allows members to earn cash back and bookmark items while shopping online, will donate $100 to Soles4Souls for every $1,000 of cash back earned by Shoptivity members. This money will go directly to supporting Soles4Souls’ micro-enterprise program, which helps lift families out of poverty in over 127 countries across the world.
Shoptivity co-Founder and CEO Greg Gorra commented that “this foundational partnership is an important reflection of who Shoptivity is and seeks to be as a growing business. Giving back is in our DNA, and we’re excited to work with an organization in Soles4Souls that has such a widespread and lasting impact on families.”
In addition, Soles4Souls Director of Corporate Development Pattie Graben noted, “With the support of Shoptivity, Soles4Souls has the ability to expand our social enterprise and anti-poverty mission where solid business practices are used to create positive change in people’s lives. We hope to take a big step in helping Shoptivity engage their consumer and keep making a difference for people in need.”
The partnership is effective immediately and donations will occur at the end of each quarter in parallel with the delivery of cash back checks to Shoptivity members. Beyond Shoptivity’s direct donation to Soles4Souls, Shoptivity members will be able to seamlessly donate any portion (or all) of their cash back check for the quarter to Soles4Souls.
