Charity Gift Cards Can Now Be Shared on Facebook

Posting of Charity Donation Gifts on Friend's Wall -- New for the Holiday Season

LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - November 29, 2010) - CharityChoice Gift Cards announced the launch on Cyber Monday of a new method for giving charity gifts to friends on Facebook. You can now create a personalized charitable GivingBuddy ecard that can be shared with Facebook friends on their Wall, showing a message and ecard graphic. CharityChoice provides a redemption URL for the card, to be attached as a link when sharing with your friend. This non-invasive system enables users to post charitable ecards on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.

GivingBuddy cards allow the giver to pre-select a charity to receive a portion of their donation, leaving their Buddy with the opportunity to pick another two causes. You can now select from over 500 major national and local charities. Causes include those for children, environment, health, military, animals, disaster relief and more.

The gift-giver can choose cheerful holiday, environmental green, birthday or all-occasion card designs, specify an amount starting from $2, and add a greeting and message. The graphic design will appear on their friend's Wall when the link is posted. Multiple cards can be purchased with unique redemption URLs provided for each, so you can send to your entire holiday gift list of family and friends. This is a 100% tax-deductible gift that is certainly the most meaningful gift most would receive this year.

"We think people will be thrilled to do charitable gift-giving this holiday season in a more social way with our GivingBuddy. Charities can register and take advantage of this popular channel for funding that is so needed in these difficult times," said Daniel Goodman, President of CharityChoice. "Before the holidays, we will be giving the option to connect to your Facebook account to deliver the cards directly. Let's use these technological tools for a higher purpose, to elevate our gift-giving with gifts that help others, when more people are in need than ever."
