Just like that, we are back to celebrating the holiday season although this year will look a little different. With the uncertain times, skip the crowded stores and purchase gift cards for family, friends, and coworkers. Not a gift card type of gifter? No problem, you can still support by purchasing cards to use for gas and groceries. You can purchase e-gifts through Scrip all year round, however we will place an order for physical cards arriving in time for Christmas–read on for details.
Scrip is a program with gift cards from national and local retailers, the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Supporters like you buy the cards for full face value, then redeem them for full face value, and CRDF keeps the difference to support our programs.
Ordering gift cards through Scrip has a big impact. For example, if you ordered $25 in gas cards each week, you would earn $52/year in rebates to donate to our efforts in Haiti. Add on cards for your favorite grocery stores and get a head start on your holiday shopping and the impact you can have snowballs!
