5 Ways Tendr is Making Giving (and Receiving) Thoughtful Bar & Bat Mitzvah Gifts Easier
With some things, tradition should be preserved. Giving cash gifts at bar and bat mitzvahs, for example, is a long a wonderful tradition.
But how we give money? That could definitely use an update!
Here’s 5 ways Tendr is updating this tradition and making your life a little easier when it comes to giving and receiving money for bar and bat mitzvahs!
1. No lost checks
Not sure what you were like at 12 years old, but when we were that age handing us a stack of cards with checks and cash was not a very smart idea. Even the most responsible kids have a hard time keeping an eye on valuables. And, when there’s fun to be had a dance moves to show off, our expectations are pretty low for them keeping a watchful eye on those.
When you use Tendr, those gifts don’t need to be watched, since they’re direct-deposited to your account once you receive the card!
2. No wondering who gave what
Is your child a prodigious list-maker? Known for their clerical skills? We didn’t think so…
Using Tendr means that you’ll be able to easily keep track of who sent how much to your child for easy-to-access information when it comes time to write thank you cards.
3. We have thank you cards
Once you’re ready, your child can easily write a thank you card to each gift-giver to show their appreciation for the generous gifts they’ve received.
4. Tendr is a great way to raise money for good causes
You can use Tendr Event pages to share information about your child’s bar or bat mitzvah project. Since we don’t take a percentage of the gift money, every penny given will be available to donate to their cause.
Check out this bat mitzvah page for inspiration on how to use Tendr to raise money for a good cause!
5. Show your kid you know what’s up
Be the ‘cool parent’ you always dreamed of being by using a piece of technology your kid hasn’t even heard of yet! We promise, you’ll score some cred -- even if they won’t admit it to you.
