The Most Eco-Friendly Christmas Tree of All: Charity Trees on Your Friend's Facebook Wall

Connect to Your Facebook Account to Deliver Your GivingBuddy Donation E-Gift for Over 500 Causes

LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - December 19, 2010) - CharityChoice Gift Cards now offers a cheerful Christmas tree graphic to post via their causes Facebook app. 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 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. You can select from over 500 major national and local charities for the funds to benefit. 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. 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. "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."
