Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
What is the best gift to give a teacher who has spent countless hours during the school year patiently inspiring children, and imparting knowledge, wisdom, and critical thinking skills? Blogs from teachers and former teachers reveal that one of the best gifts a teacher can receive following a handwritten personal thank you note from a student, are gift cards. Gift cards and e-cards purchased from Gift Cards for a Cause(GCFC) are fantastic charitable gift ideas for teachers. Not only do these gifts show appreciation to teachers, assistant teachers, support staff, and administrators, but these gift cards also give back to a non-profit organization of choice, including parent teacher organizations that add much needed funding to schools throughout the country.
Gift Cards for a Cause is a National Grassroots Philanthropic Company that allows consumers to purchase their favorite retail E-Cards and gift cards that give back up to 40% of the gift card value to a charity of their choice.
Elizabeth Lane Elementary School, part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System in Matthews, NC, recently signed up for this program for precisely this reason. “Unfortunately, we did not sign up in time to benefit for the Christmas holidays, the other big teacher gift giving holiday, but at Elizabeth Lane, we are looking forward to parents taking advantage of the Gift Cards for a Cause give back program to raise additional funds to help our school for the coming school year,” states Katherine Willis, Vice President of Fundraising, Elizabeth Lane Elementary School PTA.
Schools organizations can complete a “Partner with Us” form which can be found on the Gift Cards for a Cause website to be listed on our website as an official donation partner. In addition, Gift Cards for a Cause always gives purchasers the opportunity to write in the name of their favorite 501(c)3 organizations, if it is not currently signed up as a donation partner. This means everyone can immediately purchase teachers gift cards, write in the name of the designated school organization and start receiving donations from the Gift Cards for a Cause “give back” program.
Another recent donation partner, Elizabeth Lankford, a Member of the South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church Weekday School Committee concurs, “The end of the school year is approaching, and what better way to show appreciation for teachers and our school than by purchasing gift cards from Gift Cards for a Cause.”
