01. What is private gifting? -TOP-
Private gifting is a concept embraced by private groups of consenting adults as individuals and has existed for many years. This private activity does not involve network marketing, multi-level marketing, or a kind of business nor commercial ventures. There are no business transactions, investments and/or securities involved in this activity. There is no business or company name or location and there are no directors, officers, shareholders or principals. Private Individuals simply voluntarily support each other in a team concept which helps change participant’s lives.
The concept of private gifting is based upon the fact that both American and Canadian citizens have the Constitutional right to gift property, cash and other assets, and are subject to the rules and regulations established by the laws. The U.S. gifting rules are found in the IRS Tax Code, Title 26, Sections 2501-2504 and 2511.
The law states that one or more individuals can give a gift to another individual of up to $13,000 each per calendar year without any tax liability to the receiver of the gift, because any taxes on the gift has already been paid. Per the Law GIFTS, Donations, Pledges, contributions, etc., are not included in the gross income of the recipient. Also, see United States, IRS Publication 950.
02. How did this concept begin? -TOP-
Privately, giving gifts to one another has always been an expression of appreciation and kindness, which has been happening for centuries. Governments have allowed and supported its practice by allowing institutions and individuals to share their wealth with families, friends and others. It has always been a means of helping and blessing others on special occasions or when the need arises.
Many cultures gift as a matter of course. Asian, Jewish and South American communities give gifts to individuals within their culture on a regular basis so that they may start a business or buy a home. They in turn gift someone else to help enhance their lives. Habitat for Humanity is a great example of private giving. Everyone participates with their time, their talents and materials to build a home for someone else. Some participate with a hammer, some with nails, some with food and others with the monetary gifts to purchase the supplies, but all create a team that works together to bless someone's life.
03. How does the gifting activity work? -TOP-
Individuals share using a basic concept that "All things must be done in order" - the Universal Law of Sowing and Reaping - "when you give, you shall receive." This follows God's Law of Reciprocity. "Give and it shall be given unto you."
To participate in this activity, it is offered only by means of an exclusive one-to-one private invitation. When someone accepts the invitation, they move through a natural progression from the giving to the receiving stages of the activity. In this activity, there is no fixed hierarchy of individuals who have an advantageous position or unfair advantage over new participants.
04. Who can participate? -TOP-
As stated above, this is a private sharing group, and is offered only through an exclusive one-on-one invitation to consenting individuals over 18 years of age. You are invited to learn more about our activity and can choose to become part of something extraordinary.
05. Is this a company? -TOP-
This is NOT a commercial venture so there is no company - we are a team of individuals, and we give to one another and other teammates. We are not a business or an investment. No company can withhold or misplace any gift. We are totally in charge of our own gifts and give directly one to another and work together voluntarily, for the betterment of the entire team.
06. How can you give to a stranger? -TOP
How many times have you given to United Way, the Salvation Army and other charities? You don't know who got the gift, what stranger. The only difference here is that this person will start out as a stranger, but you will get to know them as part of the team, work with them and develop new friendships. We all have met some of the most wonderful people and have made a lot of new friends across the country and around the world. These people are caring and generous and they like team dynamics - these are people we want to meet and befriend.
07. Is this a pyramid? -TOP-
Definition: Pyramid – A system or structure which resembles a Pyramid, with an ever widening base. No, this is definitely not a pyramid nor a pyramid scheme. All pyramids are associated with a company or a business. We are not a company, nor a business, simply a private sharing club. There are no sales quotas, we do not sell positions and we do not have an ever-widening base with our system. A pyramid only has 1 top position and never allows anyone coming in later to ever reach the top.
Here, everyone gives the same gifts, works together in a voluntary team dynamics and receives the same amount that they chose to receive as a gift/pledge. In a pyramid, only those at the top profit while those at the bottom never reach the top. In a pyramid, people can and have lost their money. Example: the Stock Market
A pyramid is some times confused with "Network Marketing or Multi-Level Marketing". Although Network Marketing and Multi-Level Marketing are legal and viable sources of earning income, have you, or anyone you know, been able to start at the entry level, the bottom of the MLM company, and reach the top position in the company? NEVER!
So look at this very carefully… We are neither a networking company nor a pyramid scheme.
08. Why would I want to participate? -TOP-

Laws state (U.S. gifting rules are found in the IRS Tax Code, Title 26, Sections 2501-2504 and 2511.) that it is legal for individuals to give gifts with each other. In the United States we have the Preamble, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to protect a private citizen's rights to earn, pay taxes and give away property and cash as long as it is done according to the laws and codes of this country.
