10 Reasons Why The GlobalGiving Gift Card Is The Best Gift Ever

Holiday gift-giving can be tricky. Here are 10 reasons why the GlobalGiving Gift Card is the perfect solution to a less stressful and more meaningful holiday season.


It’s that time of year again. The time of year where we spend hours stressing over the “perfect gift” and fretting over how we’re contributing to an increasingly consumerist culture. This year can be different—we promise. We asked our staff why they think the GlobalGiving gift card is the perfect gift.

Here’s what they had to say:

1. “Because my dad’s drawers cannot fit another pair of socks or underwear this year.”

-Andrea Osorio, Disaster Recovery Team Fellow

2. “Because you can choose to support nonprofits in more than 170 countries around the world! A new scarf can’t do that!”

-Megan DeSisti, Program Associate + New Partner Support

3. “Because no one can complain about giving to charity.”

-Rishabh Bajekal, Senior Disbursement Associate

4. “Because who knows what they should get their third cousin?!”

-Katherine Heidecke, Programs Fellow

5. “Because it’s a great bridge-builder. It will help your relatives support causes that are really close to their hearts!”

-Lizette Hechavarria, Creative + UX Designer

6. “Because I would rather have a GlobalGiving gift card than another thing from QVC. Love you, Grandma.”

-Holly Belkot, Manager of Strategic Initiatives

7. “Because there’s always that one person that you were not expecting to get you a gift. If you keep a few GlobalGiving Gift Cards in your back pocket, you have a thoughtful gift already on hand, and you avoid feeling like a horrible person.”

-Nick Hamlin, Data Scientist

8. “Because you can choose from more than 3,000 nonprofits to support! That, to me, is just way cooler than getting another gift card to a chain restaurant.”

-Barrett Cope, Junior Developer

9. “Because it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for my kids. It’s now a holiday tradition for us to look through all the projects together, and they get to choose the one they want to give the money to. My daughter always chooses the same project about helping zebras.”

-Kevin Conroy, Chief Product Officer

10. “Because everyone wants that warm fuzzy feeling around the holidays. I’ve found there’s no better way to get it than supporting causes like education for girls in Afghanistan to climate conservation in Costa Rica.”

-Nicole Morrissey, Senior Business Partnerships Manager
