Our mission

Reconcile the French with gifts and solidarity.

It starts with a simple action: offering a gift card that allows the recipient to make a donation to the French association that is closest to their heart.

Our finding

More and more French people are choosing to consume responsibly and with solidarity.

This choice is facilitated by an evolution of mentalities but also by a growing number of brands offering alternatives to traditional products.

However, this reflex is struggling to take root when buying gifts. The fear of not aiming at the right thing, the lack of time and ideas often lead to opting for boilerplate gifts, perceived as "less risky" but also less appreciated. Thus, nearly half of French people say they receive at least one unwanted gift for Christmas.

At the same time, 29% of French people claim to want to be useful to society. 18% of our compatriots would even like to do something for their neighbors in a more concrete way.

**What if there was a solution that would allow you to remain faithful to your values when buying a gift, while offering the possibility of taking the step together by becoming an actor of change?

The Charitips card is positioned as an original, useful and supportive gift that will perfectly complement a more traditional main gift.

Our story

Charitips is an initiative proposed by Maxime Quillévéré, having been born in May 2019. Its genesis dates back to the fall of 2018, when Maxime wanted to offer a colleague the possibility to donate the surplus money collected for his going-away gift to an association. At the time, there was no solution offering a charitable gift card that worked with a wide range of French associations. Charitips was born to answer this need.
