Our Mission ✨

Send a friend, spread the love.

SendAFriend provides so much more than we can fit in our little blue boxes. Pick a fluffy pal, write a personalized message, and we’ll take care of the rest! It is the easiest way to make someone’s day.

So much more than a smile.

Our Friends deliver hugs and happiness all over the world, but first, they need help packing their bags. Our team members snuggle them up in tissue paper and hand them a notecard with your personalized message. Next, it’s into one of our signature blue boxes and they’re out the door! When that package arrives, your SendAFriend will be right there with open arms, ready to say, “Someone Loves You.”

A team dedicated to positivity.

Worldwide smiles begin with local teammates. Founded as a small business, SendAFriend values the close relationships and attention to detail that come with a kindhearted and loyal staff. Made up of personal family and friends, our entire team packs each box with love and care. The positive messages we share each day encourage us to keep spreading love throughout the world.

A lasting commitment.

SendAFriend works to benefit communities nationwide. Each month, we donate 10% of total sales to various pediatric hospitals and care facilities around the country. While SendAFriend constantly develops new charity initiatives, this ambition remains at the center of our entire business.

A message from our founder:

I started SendAFriend with the purpose of sharing something positive. The world constantly faces discouraging news, events, and negativity. I wanted to create something that shared a smile, a laugh, and an overwhelmingly positive experience. Facing difficulties at the time myself, I noticed how much a simple smile brightened my day or even my week -- this smile still remains at the core of SendAFriend’s business.

From the company’s very inception, I realized we could do much more than spread smiles, we could assist those in need of something greater. Since the beginning, SendAFriend has guaranteed a monthly donation of 10% of our total revenue to various pediatric hospitals around the country, something not many companies are able to say. This initiative has already provided tens of thousands of dollars in donations, of which I am extremely proud.

This founding mission remains my greatest focus and continually provides support to healthcare teams in offering superior and invaluable care throughout the United States. As the business grows, I strive to create new and similar initiatives directly supporting different communities nationwide, to continue spreading the love as much as possible. I cannot express how grateful I am to operate a business with such an amazing cause.

Your continued patronage makes these missions possible, and allows us to proudly support many amazing organizations while creating smiles throughout the world. None of this would be possible without your continued support and faith in the business, and I personally want to thank each and every customer, follower, and fan for making this vision a reality.

With love and gratitude,

Tyler Macke
Founder of SendAFriend
