We are a small team with a big mission: to Unite the World through Holidays

More about who we are, why we are fundraising, where your funds go, and rewards we offer

+ What

HolidaySmart.com is a fully functional online media site that features Holiday and Calendar information, stories, dates, fun stuff, storytelling, and more. We are a place to share holiday experiences, holiday stories, holiday moments. We’re more than a website or online calendar — we’re a movement. We are growing a community of people who want to explore, discover and celebrate together, learning from each other and growing in understanding and unity.

+ Why

Because right now, the world needs reasons to unite and come together in celebration. Opening up conversations about different cultures, different religious holidays, different country celebrations, creates a community of people who can find ways to connect. Our community is growing and we want you to be a part of it.

+ You

We started our fundraiser because we need a community in order to grow and to unite positively through holiday celebrations. With zero fundraising or advertising budget, we’ve earned impressive pageviews, domain authority, and built a massive amount of online content. Our community is active, supportive and troll-free. And we have done all of this while we work full-time jobs and self-funding the website. We believe that our progress is contingent on your support, and we need your help to move this mission forward.

+ Funds

We use your funds to move our mission forward.

Quality Content: We understand that we’re only as powerful as our stories and would like to be able pay our featured contributors for their work. We aim to be the most credible source online for holiday information where our community can find the information they seek. Some notable content includes stories of holiday spirit uniting people across cultures.

Upgrading User Experience: Our goal is to not only to provide you the best holiday content possible, but to make it the best experience possible. We’ve been in the trenches building the website and our calendar and are continuing to make it easier to discover and engage, enjoy and share, and explore the world of cultures and holidays and bring content that inspires you in a format that is easy to navigate and connect.

Our Calendar: We already have the most innovative daily fun & awareness calendar that lets our visitors search daily holidays by topic, such as food, animals & pets, fandom, earth, and so much more. We are looking to improve our calendar with integrations to googlecal and ical and to make it easy for our users to add the holidays that they care about to their own calendars.

Our Podcast: We have completed our first year of our daily holiday podcast where we share the daily fun and awareness holidays each day. We are looking to take our podcast to the next level with a co-host and guest hosts to talk about the days holidays, how to integrate them into your social media each day, fun ideas to celebrate, and share more information and tid-bits to give our community fun things to talk about and share in their daily lives.

Tech Maintenance Fees: Keeping a website active and updated isn’t cheap. We need your help to expand while preserving our existing content. As we are growing, our server fees are increasing, our developer maintenance fees are increasing, and our upkeep is increasing. In order to keep it going, we need your help.
