Katie’s Favorites – Gift Card Giver

Off the top of your head can you think of how many unused gift cards you have in your wallet? You know there is at least one, but probably more like five. We are given gift cards and often either forget to use them or have a few dollars left on them. There is an organization our friends started to turn those unused dollars into good. They take the money left on them and give it away to those in need. It’s called the Gift Card Giver. We think it’s an amazing idea and one we should all utilize.

In their words:


Four friends had an idea to collect gift cards and give them to people in need. They went to a gathering and asked 8 people how much money in unused Gift Cards they had in their wallets and walked away with $50 in Gift Cards to help people in need. GiftCardGiver.com was born.

Gift Card Giver is a new form of giving. The Gift Card industry has risen to be a 60 billion dollar industry. Ever wonder how many gift cards are unused? More than 10%. That means billions of dollars are waiting to be used for good on Gift Cards.

How many gift cards do you have sitting in your wallet? We guess you have at least $5 of unused gift cards in your wallet or purse right now. What’s 5 bucks going to buy you? Five bucks in Gift Cards may buy you a pair of socks…but 10 people giving 5 bucks will buy a kid a winter coat or 1000 people giving $5 from may give that same kid a warm bedroom to sleep through the night.


It is very simple to get involved:
STEP 1: Use as much of your card as you want (or send a full card).
STEP 2: Write how much is left on your card using a permanent marker.
STEP 3: Place the card in an envelope and send it to us at:

Gift Card Giver
490 East Side Ave SE
Atlanta, GA 30316


We collect and distribute the cards to appropriate Non-Profit Organizations that can use those cards to help others. We have never used a card for ourselves and never will. Thanks for contributing. This is a grass roots campaign that has created a new form of giving and you are an important piece to the idea coming to life.
