Giving to charity is certainly a great way to celebrate the holidays, but even in the best situations, one size doesn’t always fit all.
That’s why we love the Causes Gift Card, which allows the recipient to choose the charity of their choice.
The cards are available in denominations of $25 and $50, and can be purchased through Safeway and Vons stores throughout California.
Gift givers purchase the cards (yes, they are tax deductable too!) and the person receiving it can go on-line to causes.com to select from over 1 million non-profit organizations. The money is then donated through the Network for Good. Causes then sends the cardholder confirmation of their donation.
Causes is currently working towards enabling on-line sales of the cards in the future.
What a perfect way to give and give back at the same time.
Our favorite charity is www.cycleforsurvival.org, a wonderful organization that gives 100% of all funds to research to cure rare forms of cancer.
