20% of the card price goes to the charity of the customer’s choice. Over $1M donated since 2006.
Greeting cards go hand in hand with holidays and birthdays. But charity and gift giving time don’t always fit in the same box. Cards for Causes wanted to make charity fit easily with ordering greeting cards because they had a vision that a strong business can make a difference in the community. When businesses give to charity, they often strengthen their financial outlook as well as network with charities and other businesses. What started out as a 20% of sales going to a handful of charities has grown to donations going to 600 charities.
Customers simply order a package of cards from Cards for Causes then select a charity of their choice to donate to. As the name suggests, Cards for Causes donates to many charities. To date, the company has donated over $1 million in charity donations. Does the concept work? The company has steady business and sales range from 25 to 25,000 cards per order. Giving to charity helps the customer feel good about making the world a better place and helps our employees feel they contribute value.
