Two Bucks for a Christmas Tree: Charity e-Gifts for Your Friend's Facebook Wall

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

LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - CharityChoice Gift Cards announced the launch of their causes Facebook app for giving charity donation gifts to friends via Facebook. You can now connect to your Facebook account to create a personalized charitable GivingBuddy ecard that can be posted directly on your friend's Wall, showing a message and ecard graphic. 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.

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 now 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. The purchase is 100% tax-deductible and this is certainly the most meaningful gift most would receive this year.

Ecard selections include a Christmas tree, other cheerful holiday graphics, birthday, environmental and all-occasion card designs. The graphic design 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. "We are pleased to offer this 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 people are in need than ever."
