UEnd: The Best Holiday Gift Ever

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2009) - UEnd

Ok you have been to the malls, risked and perhaps received a few bruises for the experience but you still have not found that perfect Christmas, Hanukah or Host Gift. You recognize that you want to get a really good gift because you care about the person you are buying for. Yet, the malls are a nightmare with having to fight to get service and the long waits in the checkout line and it is too late for catalog shopping. That necktie with the little blue dots you spied close to the doors is looking pretty good right now but you know that would be a bad gift. There is another way; a better way.

A UEnd Solution

Can you imagine a gift that allows you to shop from the comfort of your house, get a tax receipt, cut down on the wrapping paper and skip the whole debate about consumption and helps change the world? Well, the best gift ever achieves all of these things. It is the UEnd Gift Card. This card allows you to buy a gift that changes the world, encourages other people to get involved in changing the world and helps a person get out of poverty. Can a sweater or other tech item do that? UEnd knows for a fact that it does not. Jay Baydala, UEnd's founder and Executive Director says "I would like to encourage people to give one gift differently this year in the form of a gift card that ends poverty. UEnd is all about getting the everyday person to get involved in changing the world. What easier way can contribute than by giving a different kind of gift this holiday season?"

To purchase gift cards go to UEnd website www.uend.org/give, and purchase a gift card on your credit card after you log in. You can either email the gift card to the recipient or print a card from the site and give them a card in person. The recipient then chooses a project to support with the funds on the gift card using a gift card code. There are projects on the site covering 9 different causes from all over the globe, providing lots of options and the reassurance that 100% of the gift funds go directly to the people that are working to get out of poverty.

So ultimately, UEnd would like to ask people to make a choice; the choice to get involved in changing the world while buying your gifts this Christmas instead of buying that new tech thingy or sweater that you might use for one year. At UEnd, our aim is to END world poverty. Together we can make it happen.
