“The Gift Card industry has risen to be a 60 billion dollar industry. Ever wonder how many gift cards are unused? Between 10 – 15%. That means billions of dollars are sitting on gift cards, waiting to be used for good.”
Just a quick thought tonight.
If you’ve got a gift card in your wallet, maybe left over from Christmas, consider giving it away.
You could give it to Gift Card Giver, a non-profit that gathers up old gift cards, and donates them.
Or, you could do as I did this morning. I had a gift card from a local grocery store left over from Christmas and I needed to help supply drinks and snacks for my Toastmasters club’s open house today. The amount on the card was just the right amount.
It’s just another small way to give.
Gave a Christmas gift card to a better cause than myself. Also gave a $5 McDonald’s card to a homeless person.
