About the hiring organization:
Daymaker is a kid-to-kid giving platform that helps parents share the joy of doing good with their children. Daymaker aims to form habits around giving at the youngest of ages by creating an experience for kids that is as rewarding as receiving. Kids use Daymaker to help others kids on their birthday, during back-to-school, and around the holiday season, involving their community to buy needed items for specific children. Our national nonprofit partners manage the supply of recipients, and we buy direct from manufacturers to curate wish lists from which donors can purchase. We’re the technology layer in-between, providing families with a personal, powerful, and simple giving opportunity. Since Daymaker started, we’ve had users in all 50 states, over 10,000 donors who have purchased an item through the platform, and are partnering with 100 + nonprofits around the country.
