Why is this Important
Gift Cards have the power to transform lives...
When people think of a small remaining gift card balance (no matter the type of gift card) they usually think of its value relative to personal experience, i.e., what can I purchase at Macy's or Home Depot for the few dollars I have remaining? That’s what most us think of, and it is a perfectly natural response, but what we don’t consider is that when that remaining value hits a certain point most of us will see that small remaining balance as worthless and not worth the effort of claiming. We believe that this is exactly where the greatest opportunity for a new kind of charitable giving exists, essentially our mission is to change the way people value a small balance gift card, and share our experience in how they can be used to impact the underserved people and communities across the USA.
Most people believe that when they have used up most of their gift card that the small remaining balance is somehow less valuable, but we know from experience that when this balance can be redirected towards communities and people in need, the results can be profound. Your remaining balance can feed and clothe children, it can give shelter and food to the homeless, provide medication aide to children and the elderly, or help a domestic violence victim find a safe place. What if I told you that a 10 dollar remaining balance gift card could offer a night of food and shelter for up to 16 homeless people in your local community, its true! Don’t make the mistake of thinking your balance is not worth the effort because there is over a billion dollars a year out there that thinks that way, and every penny counts.
Your cause is our cause...
The Charitable Challenge Model.
GiftCards4Change will be launching a new fundraising platform in November 2016. Our giving platform will give registered users the ability to create fundraising challenges for charitable needs in local communities all across the United States. We will continue our commitment to the meaningful expansion of charitable giving by monetizing on the billion dollar a year opportunity that unused gift and remaining gift card balances represent. Think of our new platform as crowd funding meets a fully reviewed and approved system of charitable causes that people can donate to and get involved in. All within your specific community, and monetized mostly by the low balance gift cards you no longer need. Our objective is simple, we grow charitable giving for all causes and community need programs, and we do this with a platform of change and the power of your voice.
At GiftCards4Change we believe the gift card represents a unique and ambitious way of giving, and we are unwaveringly committed to expanding the use of what is commonly undervalued (the low balance gift card) to impact the lives of the underserved.
Do you have a cause? Do you passionately care about giving something back? Have you recognized a need in your local community? Then our new platform will be the place for you.
The GiftCards4Change charity platform is the way "we support you". There is nothing more powerful than you, and the cause you are passionate about. Therefore, your cause is our cause and we remain dedicated to becoming your giving platform for local (need based) humanitarian initiatives. We believe that the needs of a community are most impacted by ordinary acts of kindness, and the extraordinary people who do them, and the power of unused gift card balances to help save lives.
