Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
National Grassroots Philanthropic Company, Gift Cards for a Cause, continues to grow and expand, in large part due to creative marketing strategies and increased media exposure. Gift Cards for a Cause allows gift card purchasers to give back up to 20% of the gift card value to the 501(c)3 non-profit organization of choice, while retaining the full value of the gift card.
Recently, the story of how the Executive Director, Stacy Baum, got involved with Gift Cards for a Cause as a result of a life changing accident was featured on WBTV in Charlotte, NC. The compelling story has also been told in the Charlotte Observer, and the Founder, Donna Chrobak’s story was recently spotlighted in the South Charlotte Weekly. Gift Cards for a Cause gives back to a wide range of social service, health, educational, environmental, and animal welfare organizations throughout the United States. In fact, this month, Gift Cards for a Cause was profiled in Life + Dog Magazine, a national monthly magazine, under a special section profiling Companies that Give Back.
Chrobak founded GCFC after partnering with a grocery store chain outside Atlanta, GA, to raise funds for a local food bank, and Baum made a career changing move to market a company that allows everyone to give back to a favorite charity by doing everyday shopping and gift buying with gift cards purchased from Gift Cards for a Cause. The combined passion of the two has resulted in 22 new donation partners since September. Another impactful innovation to give back is through E-cards. The GCFC website now features more than 40 E-cards that are available within hours by email, instead of waiting days by mail for a gift card. This team has made it even easier and more efficient to give back.
According to Baum, “No extra money is required. You are buying a gift card and a percent is going to the charity of your choice. After my accident, my perspective and sense of what is important really changed. Now, I am doing what I really want to do, which is to help people give back to what they are truly passionate about.”
