The Perfect Holiday Gift Is The One That Gives Back

Time is running out to find the perfect Christmas present. Here’s one that’s sure to spread holiday cheer.


It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but finding a gift for everyone on your list may turn your Christmas punch sour. You could give a standard gift card, or you could give a donation to a world-changing nonprofit. Donation gift cards, like a GlobalGiving Gift Card, are a unique present that lets the recipient support a cause that’s close to their heart.

Here are all the ways a GlobalGiving Gift Card will let you give this holiday season:

1. Give to change the world.

With a GlobalGiving Gift Card, you can give a gift that is meaningful and memorable. Instead of stuffing a stocking with chocolates (again), you can share the chance to make a difference. With thousands of projects in 175+ countries, the recipient can choose a cause they care about—whether that’s education, conservation, or anything in between.

2. Give to loved ones near and far.

It’s easy to order a GlobalGiving Gift Card online. Choose the donation amount, and let them choose the nonprofit that will receive it. Mail a physical gift card or print out a PDF version for your family’s gift exchange on Christmas Eve. You can even email the gift on Christmas day.


3. Give yourself a tax benefit.

When you buy a GlobalGiving Gift Card, you will receive a tax receipt and may be eligible for tax benefits if you live in the United States. Between the cost of Christmas gifts and celebrations, you can give yourself a little tax relief this holiday to keep your spirits bright.

4. Give peace and joy.

With a GlobalGiving Gift Card, everyone gets a boost of holiday cheer! Research shows that there are many health benefits associated with giving. When your donation gift card is redeemed, there’s a secondary gift of lowered stress levels and increased happiness. In the busy holiday season, and amid so many challenges around the world, a little peace and joy really is the perfect Christmas present.

Give the perfect holiday gift that keeps on giving.
