At CardsDirect we like to support worthy causes. Throughout the year we donate greeting cards to those that can make good use of them. In the past few months we have donated cards to non-profit organizations that support schools, hospitals, animal adoptions, substance abuse facilities, prison ministries, and, of course, our troops.
Now that it is time for spring cleaning, I bet there are items you can donate as well. Take a look around your home or office. Your trash may be someone else’s treasures. For example, an organization called The Care Bags Foundation can use your leftover happy meal toys or mini shampoos and soaps from your hotel visits. Homeless shelters use these too.
Perhaps your office has promotional items that were never put to use. These could be donated to someone who would appreciate them. And don’t forget that a donation of your time is always needed somewhere. Grab a few co-workers and make it a team effort.
Spring is a great time to get out and get involved. How do you or those in your office donate their time, products or energy?
