The Gift Cards for Good website is collecting gift cards to use for charitable causes. We will take all your cards — even if they’ve only got 13 cents left on them. (If you’ve got some full ones, we’d take those too!)

  • Cards from super stores and department stores (like Target, Sears, Wal-mart, or Costco) can be used to buy warm clothes and shoes for kids who don’t have any.  My parents will help me find charities in every state to send the money to — since some stores are local.
  • Cards from pet stores (like PetsMart, SuperPet and IncrediPet) can help buy food for hungry pets at the Animal Protection Society.
  • Cards from gas stations like Exxon, Shell, and BP can help disabled children get to their medical appointments. Shriner’s Hospital for Crippled Children provides free medical care to disabled and burned children. Most of their patients are poor and we could help them buy the gas they need to get their kids to their appointments.
  • Cards from grocery stores (like Harris Teeter, Krogers, and Wegmans) will provide food for hungry children. We can donate the value to a lot of local food banks or to America’s Second Harvest.
  • Cards from toy stores like Toys R Us and FAO Schwartz can help buy toys for kids who don’t get new toys at the holidays.
  • Cards from appliance stores (like Best Buy and Circuit City) can be used to buy appliances for the new houses that Habitat for Humanity builds for poor people.
  • Cards from books stores (like Borders and Barnes and Nobles) can buy books for libraries in very poor neighborhoods.
  • Cards from hardware stores (like Lowes and Home Depot) can help buy the things that Habitat for Humanity needs to build houses for those left outside in the cold.
