Last Minute Christmas Trees That Help the Environment? Absolutely, Post Charity Trees on Your Friend's Facebook Wall

CharityChoice and Nature Conservancy Partner to Deliver GivingBuddy Donation e-Gifts via Facebook

LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) - CharityChoice Gift Cards now offers a cheerful Christmas tree graphic to post via their causes Facebook app. Connect to your Facebook account to deliver your GivingBuddy donation e-gift for over 500 causes. This is not only the most meaningful gift most would receive this holiday season, but is also the best for the environment.

CharityChoice recently partnered with Nature Conservancy for Green Gift Monday, promoting ecards as a gift of choice for the environmentally conscious consumer. The Christmas tree ecard can do even more when pre-selecting the Nature Conservancy as the 'Featured Charity'. 75% of the card value will go towards their mission of protecting nature and preserving life.

The GivingBuddy cards allow the gift giver to pre-select a charity to receive a portion of their donation, leaving their Buddy with the opportunity to pick another two causes. Causes include those for children, environment, health, military, animals, disaster relief and more. Additional environmental charities include WWF and the Sierra Club.

Denominations start at $2, so you can send to your entire holiday list of family and friends. CharityChoice also provides a system to post on Twitter and other social networks. The purchase is 100% tax-deductible.

Ecard selections include a Christmas tree, other cheerful holiday graphics, birthday, environmental and all-occasion card designs. Ecards can be personalized with a greeting and message. The graphic design which is selected will appear on the friend's Wall when posted.

"We think people will be thrilled to do charitable gift-giving this holiday season in a more social way with our GivingBuddy delivered via Facebook," said Daniel Goodman, President of CharityChoice."We are pleased to offer this eco-friendly option now for season's greetings. Let's use these technological tools for a higher purpose, to elevate our gift-giving with gifts that help others, when more are in need than ever."
