It has only been a few days since our “holiday shopping guide” came out via email informing all of our supporters how to support SHINE this upcoming holiday season, and there is already great news! Though that email had been about the Tribute Card Campaign going on from Nov. 23 until the end of the year, there was also some information on GlobalGiving’s gift cards. The details of the gift card grant is below:
- “For every 500 gift cards, ecards, or print-at-home cards sold on GlobalGiving.org between Nov 1, 2011 12:00:00 AM EST and Dec 31, 2011 11:59:59 PM EST, a $500 grant will be made to a high performing project on GlobalGiving.org. A group of anonymous donors have provided enough funding for 20 grants. Only gift cards purchased online using a credit card or PayPal are eligible for the gift card challenge. Please note that GlobalGiving maintains the right to make a final decision on all matters concerning the adjudication of unique gift cards and the final results of the Gift Card Challenge.”
So what’s so great about all of that? GlobalGiving chose SHINE’s Kashmiri project to be its second recipient and JUST yesterday, the 500th card was purchased to “win” us a bonus grant! Therefore, we just wanted to say THANK YOU for helping us receive more money to help fund our relief efforts. Every bit of help you offer makes a difference in so many lives. Thank you!
