As I was driving into work today, I was listening to The Ken Coleman Show podcast and I heard about this company, giftcardgiver.com. The creator of this site noticed that a large number of gift cards have portions of an unused balance. So he decided to start an organization that would collect all of these gift cards that have a balance that have ranged from $0.13 to $100. The gift cards would then be distributed to those in need.
Fabulous idea! I mean, honestly, how many of us have gift cards in our wallets or purses right now that have a small balance on it. And how likely is it that we are going to use it? Giftcardgiver.com also has tools if you want to help out. You can throw a house party where you get a bunch of friends together and everyone brings their unused gift cards. It’s a great way to turn a special event, such as a Super Bowl party or the such, into a great way to give to those in need.
