BOND Introduces New Mobile App For Professionals Who Care About Their Relationships
Proven team of entrepreneurs brings new mobile gifting experience to iOS, announces charity: water as first partner
NEW YORK, NY - Today BOND launches a mobile gifting service available as a free app on iTunes aimed at busy professionals who want to improve their valuable, real-world relationships. Led by a team of serial entrepreneurs, BOND offers a breakthrough solution that allows anyone to send a physical gift or handwritten note to a colleague, client, or friend from their iPhone in seconds, without having to know their address.
“We believe true happiness comes from making others happy,” says Sonny Caberwal, founder and CEO of BOND. “As busy professionals, we want to send notes to follow up and gifts to show we care, but we often don’t have time, know where to shop, or have the recipient’s address.”
BOND makes this process effortless by combining technical and design innovations for an easy, streamlined gifting experience that eliminates the need for a mailing address. The gifts themselves are a selection of unique products from around the world curated by co-founder Angelo Bruno, former head of merchandising at One Kings Lane.
BOND offers the following features:
● Send a handwritten note from your iPhone for only $5 (or free, using code FREENOTE), written with a fountain pen on embossed stationery and sealed with wax.
● Easily import and request addresses from the app, and once the address is confirmed, it never has to be populated again—by anyone.
● Select the perfect gift at nearly any price from a curated selection in popular categories. All gifts include a handwritten note.
● Receive calendar reminders for recent meetings and upcoming birthdays to help you follow through on your good intentions.
BOND is unique in e-commerce because of its dedicated enterprise team led by co-founder and chief growth officer, Andy Ellwood, the former head of Business Development of Waze. One of the first organizations to partner with BOND is charity: water, a leading non-profit using 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need.
“Our mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet, and our donors make that possible,” said Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of charity: water. “Working with BOND for our September Campaign in India gave us the opportunity to send hundreds of thank you notes to these donors in order to express first-hand how grateful we are for their contributions. We believe these gestures and personal connections will continue to help us build the long-term relationships we need to continue making a difference in people’s lives around the world.”
“There should be a user-friendly destination focused on the $300 billion dollar gifting space, and that’s what BOND is,” Caberwal explains. “We quickly and easily handle the shopping, handwriting, address lookup, and beautiful packaging, so people can get back to focusing on their business, while still strengthening their valuable relationships.”
As part of launch, anyone can send a wax sealed, handwritten note from his or her iPhone for free by using code FREENOTE at checkout. Download the app at http://bit.ly/15RYg1L.
