5 Reasons Why GlobalGiving’s Gift Card Is The Perfect Pandemic-Safe Gift

Who said virtual gifts have to be generic—or break the bank—to be meaningful? Find out why Fast Company called GlobalGiving’s Gift Card the perfect pandemic-safe gift.


In the era of Zoom birthday parties and uncertain holiday celebrations, you may be feeling more disconnected than ever. But remembering the important people and days in your life doesn’t have to be drab to be safe! Here are five reasons why GlobalGiving’s Gift Card is the ultimate virtual gift idea for 2020:

    1. It’s contactless and COVID-conscious.

    As the coronavirus pandemic keeps us at home and socially distant, cherished holiday rituals such as indoor shopping, family celebrations, and large office parties are increasingly risky—and unlikely. But virtual gifting is still a thing. You can order a GlobalGiving Gift Card online and send it directly to the recipient’s inbox—no contact needed! You also have the option to save and print a gift card or send a physical gift card in the mail.

    2. People want to make a difference in the world.

    One positive outcome of 2020: Social issues such as the climate crisis, racial injustice, and economic inequality have captured our attention. On the flip side, those challenges and constant doomscrolling can leave us feeling hopeless. But small actions make a remarkable impact when people come together. With thousands of projects in 170 countries that cover everything from children’s education to wildlife conservation programs, the GlobalGiving Gift Card lets people champion causes close to their hearts.

    3. You’re giving back to communities when they need it the most.

    2020 has been a trying year with the coronavirus pandemic, record-breaking natural disasters, and the global economic downturn. Nonprofits are often among the first to respond to these crises, but one in three organizations are at risk of closing down within the next 12 months due to pandemic-related revenue loss. You could help nonprofits continue supporting their communities and check some names off your gift list. Talk about a perfect pandemic-safe gift!

    4. You’re giving yourself (or your company) tax benefits.

    When you purchase a GlobalGiving Gift Card, you will receive a tax receipt and may be eligible for tax benefits if you live in the United States—just in time for the end of the year! Businesses can also buy gift cards in bulk for employees and receive tax benefits. Learn more about how tax-deductible donations work and the tax benefits of purchasing GlobalGiving Gift Cards.

    5. Giving a gift can make you happier!

    Don’t take our word for it—many scientific studies have confirmed this theory! Although picking out the perfect gift for someone special in your life has become a bit daunting in the COVID-19 era, we don’t have to surrender this simple joy to the pandemic. The GlobalGiving Gift Card is a gift that will make everyone happy: the recipient, the incredible causes they will support, and you. And we could all use some extra happiness these days.

Give the perfect (pandemic-safe) gift that keeps on giving.
