A fifth of all gifts in the UK are either never used, given away or thrown out, amounting to £2 billion of wasted expenditure a year. Timto is a site that makes it easy for a group to club together to fund a specific gift that the receiver actually wants, plus give a percentage of the total amount contributed to charity. It seeks to make giving to charity a routine element of celebrations such as birthdays, weddings, or Christmas.
