So…how’s that Christmas shopping going?
If you are like me, you’ve saved more than you should have for the last minute.
When I was younger, I craved this pressure. I used to deliberately put off my shopping so I could hit the mall at the last minute and be in the thick of all the chaos. Something about it got me in the spirit of the holiday.
These days, the idea of being within a 200 ft radius of a retail center this time of year has me huddling in a corner, rocking back and forth clinging on to Skye’s blanket for dear life.
Lucky for me, I’ve found the perfect last-minute solution.
Best of all, it is a solution that can change the world.
Did you know that an estimated $456 billion will be spent on holiday gifts this year?
To put this in perspective, it would take only $175 billion to eliminate poverty for a year!
This year, just say no to giving yet another ugly sweater, and give a charitable gift instead.
Most people that I know have enough “stuff” and would be thrilled to know that they helped someone else this holiday season. Plus, maybe you'll start a trend in your inner circle and then all of you can be blissfully ugly sweater-free.
If giving a charitable gift sounds complicated, don’t worry. Small Token makes it SO easy!
(You can read more about my experience with Small Token HERE.)
You can give a meaningful that won’t soon be forgotten in just a few moments. Who says last minute gifts can’t mean something?
Donating to causes that your friends and family care the most about is a great way to not only let them know that you are thinking about them but also to let them know that you’ve been listening. What better way to say “you matter” than to show that you care about what is important to them?
I love that Small Token connects you to the largest nonprofit database in the country. You can use the platform to donate to any 501(c)(3) in the country. Unlike most digital giving platforms, 100% of the donations are passed through to the nonprofits! They don’t deduct a processing fee, and the nonprofit partners receive donations in just two business days. (Those that are not partners will be mailed a check promptly.)
In just a few easy steps you can find a charity to donate to, craft a digital card and make a tax-deductible donation to send to your friends or loved ones. Recipients will receive a customized card instantly in their inbox.
Go HERE to send a charitable gift in honor of someone important in your life. Right now, your first gift through Small Token will be matched up to $25.
