Today is Giving Tuesday – a national movement that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Instead of buying something like a sweater or a video game, the goal is to help others.
The Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines says it’s got an easy way for people to give back.
You can purchase a giving card on its website in $25 increments that can be given to someone to donate to any non-profit in the country.
The Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines says it’s a great gift for just about anyone – including business professionals.
“The reason I buy them for clients is that a lot of people struggle with what to buy as a present,” Lori Howe of Share Marketing says. “This is a great way to help companies to extend their brand, it shows they care for their community, it helps your clients care about the community as well.”
The card is available year round.
