GlobalGiving Gift Cards let you give the gift of giving - the recipient gets to pick the projects that they want to support and then see how their money has been put to work through regular updates from the field.
If we win, I will be giving away $500 in GlobalGiving gift cards to you, my readers in future giveaways! You will also have the chance to win by purchasing a gift card for as little as $10.
With the print-at-home and e-card options of GlobalGiving’s gift cards, you have the chance to give the gift of giving right up until the last minute.
“Give local’ this holiday and purchase a gift card that will support projects in your community and give back in your own backyard.
The project that caught my eye is K.I.D.S. – Clothing, Toys and Books for Children in Need, a United States based project (More than 16 million children in the U.S. currently live in poverty.) Redeeming my gift card was a quick and simple as any gift card! I am sure you have redeemed iTunes credits, Best Buy gift card or maybe a Crate and Barrel card? Yeah. It’s that easy.
My $25 will provide $250 of baby supplies to pregnant women living in poverty.
Clothing, Toys and Books… Three things that we take for granted. Family and friends either buy or hand down these items to our boys without even thinking about it. Companies give me books and toys just for writing about them on my blog!
Paying it forward is nothing new to me or my family, we frequently donate our time, clothes, books and toys to those less fortunate.
K.I.D.S. can also benefit from a $10 donation - $10 can provide $100 of of books for an after-school tutoring program for underprivileged kids.
What’s in it for You ?
GlobalGiving, a virtual marketplace for philanthropy, allows anyone with an internet connection to support more than 1,000 pre-screened charities in the U.S. and around the world. These are groups providing real-world solutions to help educate children, feed the hungry, build houses and infrastructure, protect our environment, empower women (and men), rescue animals, and support active military and veterans – just to name a few.
The best part? You can access and support this extensive network of impactful charities with a simple gift card that your friends and family will love this holiday season. This means that, for as little as $10, you can make things easy on yourself and purchase a gift card that everyone on your gift list will enjoy – from your kids to Uncle Paul to the mailman – and give them the complete freedom to choose a cause they wish to support. Plus, it’s the gift that keeps on giving long after the holidays with regular updates from those on the ground on how your donation is making a difference.
