Who doesn’t want an excuse to party or do something good for the world?! We’re going to take a look at some incredible partners who align with cause days to celebrate in the month of April.

If you are a merchant on Shopify, you can download our award-winning app Give & Grow (for free!) to start donating through your store to any of the causes below.

If you have a special event coming up, you can use Evite Donations to add any of these causes to your online event invitation & party with a purpose!  

Here are suggestions of causes to celebrate this month, through your events & through your business:

April 15th – World Art Day

Art isn’t just for kids – bring friends of all ages together to celebrate your creative side. You can help other students get creative, too, by donating to DonorsChoose.org. Through their programs, your $5 donation can provide stickers and coloring pencils for student mentors to give to new classmates.

April 22nd – Earth Day

Give your favorite tree a nice big hug this Earth Day – or support the planting of new trees! Celebrate our planet and help protect it by donating to One Tree Planted. Every $1 donated will plant a tree, and that’s a lot more trees to hug!

April 23rd – World Book Day

Cuddle up with your favorite book, a blanket, some iced tea, and great friends for a reading celebration. While celebrating the heroes in your book, be a literacy hero yourself by donating to Schools on Wheels. Your $50 donation can provide books, a backpack and school supplies for a student in need.

All Month is Garden Month!

April is National Garden Month so whether you have a green thumb or don’t, this is the month to try out new gardening techniques and get some planting in. April is a great month to plant vegetables like broccoli, cauliflowers, tomatoes, cucumbers and celery. Get your garden ready for a bountiful summer harvest by planting now! Invite friends to make small potted herb gardens, or revitalize a community plot together. Through Community Healing Gardens, your $10 donation can buy edible seed packets; a $25 donation can buy a professional garden tool; a $50 donation can buy outdoor classroom supplies, and your $100 can buy a cubic yard of high quality soil for raised gardens.

However you choose to celebrate, make it a memorable celebration by using Pledgeling’s tools & services to give back through your events & your business!
