This year there are 53 Sundays/Mondays so here is deed #53.
Please visit Gift Card Giver To learn how you can donate gift cards.
They will take either new cards or cards you have used that have a small balance left over. They pool these cards together and give them to families and organizations across the country who need them. Sorted by store type and locations they will get the cards to people who can get to these stores that need help – in ways you might not even imagine.
While Target and Wal-Mart cards go fastest any card will do. Women’s shelters need clothing and makeup store cards to get women ready for job interviews. Youth groups need cards for toys and sporting goods. Homeless shelters need clothing, bedding and food. Even if there is no “practical” use for the card they can be offered in gift baskets at fundraisers for the organizations.
Click the link above to learn how they can use any gift card you send them. There are other organizations that collect and redistribute gift cards but this one does not take a portion for themselves, they are pure donations.
For my last martini if the year I’m having a Raspberry Kiss. Shake together (gently):
- 1 Part Champagne
- 1 Part Raspberry Vodka
Pour into your glass and sink a drop of Chambord in the bottom.
This can be super sweet – almost jammy. If you would like less sweet use a dry champagne or up the vodka a splash. Sparkling, sweet and easy this is a perfect New Year’s cocktail. This even works as a punch by adding a touch of soda water or ginger-ale to cut it a bit.
Have a wonderful New Year’s and embark on a one year project of your own in 2013! Stay tuned for details on my project for next year and how you can help.
