Four friends had an idea to collect gift cards and give them to people in need. They went to a gathering and asked 8 people how much money in unused Gift Cards they had in their wallets and walked away with $50 in Gift Cards to help people in need. GiftCardGiver.com was born.
What about you? Do you have any unused GiftCards? (I do!) It is very simple to get involved:
STEP 1: Use as much of your card as you want (or send a full card).
STEP 2: Write how much is left on your card using a permanent marker.
STEP 3: Place the card in an envelope and send it to the guys of GiftCardGiver.com at:
Gift Card Giver
490 East Side Ave SE
Atlanta, GA 30316
They then collect and distribute the cards to appropriate Non-Profit Organizations that can use those cards to help others. This is a grass roots campaign that has created a new form of giving and you are an important piece to the idea coming to life.
Or here’s a cool idea: Throw a party and ‘card’ people at the door:
Lately, donations became a night mare to people. If you donate you’ll be a terrorist supporter :( Anyway, this is a fantastic idea and it really goes to the intended idea.
Thanks Tina for sharing :)

the only unused gift card i have is to some fancy pants store in SF. i won it, and it is for $100 – but their lowest priced item is $300! i don’t think anyone “in need” could quite benefit from that :/ and if it would be beneficial to them, they really need to sort out their priorities!
