Looking for a last-minute gift idea for a hard-to-buy for person? Have you considered giving a charity gift?
When I first started doing affiliate marketing, I loved all the Christmas presents that merchants sent me (The network ShareASale used to send out some epic gifts that I still have). But now being a blogger, I’m almost overwhelmed with “gifts” of products that companies send me in hopes that I’ll blog about them. I don’t need anymore physical gifts for the holidays.
ShareASale has since grown by leaps and bounds and now donates to charity on behalf of their affiliates in lieu of sending out holiday gifts to their thousands of affiliates.
I recently heard of a great gift idea for anyone, especially the person that has everything, that can also help change the world: CARE’s Gift of Lasting Change. Last year alone, CARE helped 72 million people in 90 different countries with their poverty-fighting programs that focus on empowering girls and women.
CARE’s Gift of Lasting Change catalog offers 200 ways to fill a CARE Package at almost every price point and for almost anyone you can think of:
• $25 supplies kits to help women start their own CARE village savings group.
• $45 can buy a goat for a farmer.
• $143 sends a girl to school for a year.
• $100 helps a former child bride rebuild her life and support her family.
• Any amount can buy a Quick Gift of support for CARE’s most urgent work.
When you buy a Gift of Lasting Change, you can also send a personalized e-card to your gift recipient or download and print a paper card to mail. Also, CARE is a non-profit organization so all gift purchases are 100% tax-deductible.
