About Us

Small Token is the perfect way to give and receive meaningful charitable gifts with friends and loved ones. Donate to a nonprofit on someone’s behalf or create a personalized gift registry. With the registry, rather than getting more stuff on your next occasion, you can support causes you care about by inviting others to donate.

Ensure you receive and give gifts that mean something and do good. Say thanks, celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or holiday by crafting a card or creating a registry in a few simple steps. You and your loved ones will receive an email notification of your donations instantly, or you can schedule a gift in advance to be delivered. All proceeds go to the nonprofit of your choice.

Small Token is a product produced with love by Give Lively in the heart of NYC.

Give Lively is a technology incubator of digital products for social good. Our mission is to modernize and democratize philanthropy, enabling people to “give better” in a more regular and rewarding way. Give Lively believes the digital tools we create should be available to everyone for free, so we ensure nonprofits receive full proceeds of user donations. Our goal is to break the tired philanthropic mold by building modern solutions for modern people (like us).

The Give Lively team was intentionally curated from a wide scope of different industries. Each individual was known for her/his energetic thought leadership in their respective field: tech, software engineering, nonprofits, e-learning, music, enterprise consulting, restaurant, and editorial. The Give Lively team members came together after achieving the success needed in their early careers to hone respective skills and now are ready to truly modernize giving. We are grateful, energized, and ready to take our expertise and use it everyday to exercise our passion for social good. We will enable the next generation of social good! Join us!

Social Media Manager

Shanice’s decision to join Give Lively came from her hope to maximize the power of storytelling in combination with social media. She hopes her work will influence generations of social good enthusiasts to take action and impact our world.

Oren Goldberg

Senior Full Stack Engineer

Oren has had a love of computers and activism for as long as he can remember. He enjoys creating apps for web and mobile, teaching, traveling, nature, and fighting for the empowerment of others. He also enjoys debugging code more than he probably should. Oren has lived in Utah, Minnesota, Florida, Missouri, and New York and comes from an international family. He has had many jobs, including radio DJ, club promoter, personal care assistant, union organizer, cook, and others, but he's most happy when he gets to combine his two passions: social justice and programming. The causes most important to Oren and why he joined Give Lively are to impact environmental, economic, and racial justice, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and rights for those with disabilities.
