When it comes to giving presents, we’re told that it’s the thought that counts. With the Good Card, LUXies can now easily give a gift that makes the world a better place. How’s that for a nice thought?
Our friends over at Network for Good make it simple to purchase a gift card for that certain someone and will send it by regular mail (great to tuck into a greeting card) or by email (the green option and perfect for the last minute). Choose to give an amount from $10 to $250. Your certain someone will return to the Network for Good website to choose how to direct their gift amount to one or more of a million+ charities. As an added bonus, the gift is tax-deductible for the gift card purchaser!
Founded in November 2001 by America Online, Cisco Systems and Yahoo!, the non-profit organization Network for Good has helped more than 430,000 people donate $100 million to charities. Another 230,000 people have used Network for Good to find opportunities to volunteer.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wandering around the Network for Good site reading about the myriad of specialized charitable organizations. My query on “parrot” returned four pages of results.
That’s the beauty of this inspired giving option – there’s a good cause to fit every person’s passions.
