Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
New Year’s Resolutions are very common this time of year. Many include losing weight, eating healthier, exercising more, spending more quality time with family, and managing finances better. What about incorporating giving back and making charitable giving a part of daily life as a possibility? With Gift Cards for a Cause(GCFC), a leading national philanthropic organization providing consumers the ability to buy their favorite retail gift cards while giving back to a charity of their choice, this can become an easy resolution to keep.
Purchases from Gift Cards for a Cause can support education, children, animal rights, helping the homeless, environment, and heath related causes. Gift Cards For A Cause exists to add fuel to each individual’s passion. Choose a current Gift Cards for a Cause partner, write in an organization, or contact Gift Cards for a Cause to help make Gift Cards for a Cause part of a favorite organization’s fundraising strategy.
Gift Cards for a Cause is all about making the dollars spent doing holiday, birthday, and routine shopping work to also support a favorite non-profit or charitable organization. It is a national philanthropic company with a unique purpose, providing consumers the ability to buy their favorite retail gift card while simultaneously giving back to a charity of their choice. Consumers in the US spend over $90 billion annually on gift cards. By purchasing gift cards throughout the year, think of what the potential impact could be.
Each time gift cards are purchased from Gift Cards for a Cause, up to 20% of the purchase is donated to a nonprofit organization of the purchaser’s choice. The gift cards can then be used to make everyday purchases that would otherwise be paid for with cash or credit card. For example, instead of spending $100 per week at the grocery store, why not purchase a $100 gift card to a local grocery store from Gift Cards for a Cause and, at the same time, donate a few dollars. Start doing this when buying coffee at Starbucks, or when going to the movies at AMC or Regal, or when purchasing sneakers at Foot Locker, or that gift card to Macy’s or Barnes and Noble that is needed for a birthday or teacher’s gift.
Kristin Guarnieri of partner agency, Our Little Roses states that “Our agency, like most others, needs support and funding all year long, not just around the holidays. Gift Cards for a Cause makes it easy for everyone to give just by purchasing items already on their shopping list. It is truly a fantastic way to give back to the cause you are passionate about all year long. Now, I just buy my gift cards online and carry them around in my wallet, just like my driver’s license and credit cards.”
If large numbers of an organizations’ supporters purchase gift cards this way, donations can really add up to fund a transitional living arrangement for a homeless family, provide a mentor to help a child graduate, or allow an animal shelter to take in additional dogs who would otherwise not survive. So spread the word, and help provide these needed services and many others for a worthy non-profit organization. Incorporate giving back and making charitable giving a part of daily life at Gift Cards for a Cause.
