Hi, I am Jason Wolfe. I am the founder of GiftYa, former founder of GiftCards.com, and life long entrepreneur and philanthropist. I began my life growing up in the Milton Hershey School, in Hershey Pa. Milton Hershey School was started by the founder of Hershey Chocolate – Milton Hershey. He left his entire fortune when he passed away in 1945 to his orphanage he started in 1909. In this school I learned about philanthropy. Hershey gave away his entire fortune and invested much of his life into helping needy children. Today they serve over 2,000 students. Maybe there is a reason I am in the gifting business, to give back as I was given by Hershey, who knows. But today, we are trying to provide a better alternative to gift cards in the form of GiftYa. Gift cards are broken for several reasons.
So in this blog you will read about the last, how we got here, and the future of where we are going with GiftYa. I hope to add entries here as often as I can to tell the journey of GiftYa!
