Feather the Nest is a new site where you can create an online gift registry to help fund your home improvement projects.
Normally when you think of a gift registry you think of a list of items that someone is wanting or needing for a baby shower, birthdays, weddings, etc.
But Feather The Nest is taking this a step further and wants to help users improve their home and living space by sharing their need or want to remodel a kitchen, add a nursery, update a bathroom or even contributing to a down payment for house.
How Feather The Nest Works:
- You create a “nest page” that describes either a real estate or home improvement project that you need funding for and how it will benefit your family along with how much it will cost.
- Share your “nest” with everyone you know and love through social media channels like Facebook and Twitter. They can donate to help you to get “feathers” or funding towards reaching your nest project goal.
Other Cool Features of Feather The Nest
- friends and family can compete for who gives the most feathers
- Setting up your nest is 100% free. There is a small 5% transaction fee is charged after your nest is successfully feathered.
When someone donates to your project, it is immediately sent directly to your account and you are notified by email. You can use the gift immediately and then document the use of your feathers with updates, pictures and comments to your nest page will encourage even more gift giving. Everyone who donates to your nest will receive periodic emailed updates of your nest’s progress so they can see how your project is coming along.
