Ziftit.com A Gift To St. Francis Kids


Kids from St. Francis look for their presents at the Belle Harbor Yacht Club. Kids from St. Francis look for their presents at the Belle Harbor Yacht Club. The Children of St Francis de Sales felt as if they were in the presence of Santa himself on Saturday, January 26th. Paul Buss, CEO of Ziftit.com generously enabled the children to celebrate Christmas twice this year.

The fun ZiftGifting experience was initiated through Catholic Charities of San Diego and would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of Amy Hart and Cory Jensen of Ziftit.com as well as Jimmy Brennan, Gene Brennan, JoJo O’Grady, Eleanor Bella and Danielle Daly, who work with Catholic Charities and either live or have lived in Rockaway most of their lives.

Ziftit.com hasn’t officially launched yet but its mission is creating satisfied gift givers and recipients by allowing both sides of the gifting process to “get the right gift every time,“ in a personal, efficient and 100 percent on target manner.


James Brennan, Paul Buss, and JoJo O’Grady helped Ziftit bring smiles to local kids. James Brennan, Paul Buss, and JoJo O’Grady helped Ziftit bring smiles to local kids. Children were asked to list three items or toys they might like and Buss, through a fundraising effort specially designed on his website, did his best to grant their wishes, just like Santa.

The event was hosted at The Belle Harbor Yacht Club and volunteers helped to distribute all the gifts. Thank you also to the very hardworking staff at The BHYC.

Ziftit.com is an internet shopping company headquartered in San Diego, CA whose motto is “Making Gifting Easy”. For the children of SFDS, who haven’t had it “Easy” in recent months, they were extremely honored to have been part of this Ziftit event.

If the Rockaway experience is any indication, Ziftit will be a huge success.

If any child would like to send Mr. Buss a personal note of thanks, he can be reached at E.paul.buss@ziftit.com.
