‘Tis the season of giving!
There’s nothing quite like the joy of spreading holiday cheer, and what better way than to give back to your local community or favorite charity! In the spirit of giving, we want to help YOU donate to a charity you LOVE by providing a $100 gift card to the store of your choice so you can stock up on the best donation items!
The mission is simple — make the gift card value go as far as possible by finding deals on products that are of the most need to your charity. Then shop, save, and donate! Oh, and we’d love for you to take some pictures along the way and send them to us so we can share in your good cheer and inspire others to give back!
To kick things off, I sent out a couple Hip2Save Sidekicks, Stacy and Richard, to see how much they could score with a $100 gift card by shopping the sales at their local stores.
Stacy was able to snag LOTS of awesome deals at her local Dollar Tree and Kroger (during a mega event) in order to give back to Mission Regan, a non-profit that collects medical supplies and redistributes them to those in need around the world.
Richard also shares his giving back story below…
“I scoured the weekly Target ad for deals. Once in the store, I used the handy Target barcode scanner to make sure I wasn’t overlooking any Cartwheel offers. I also kept an eye on Checkout51 and Ibotta cash back offers (these apps make saving so easy!). I also received a flu shot, which netted a $5 Target gift card I put toward my shopping. All in all, I spent $104.05 in total, not counting the $100 gift card I started out with.
A few days later, I met with Pastor Rick to drop off my haul at the Bread of Life at the Valley Covenant Church. For the past couple of months, I’ve been volunteering during their monthly food pantry. One of the sad lessons volunteering has taught me is that poverty happens everywhere – even in a small town in the Midwest. There are still many people from all walks of life – young and old – who lack basic necessities. Every month, the food pantry helps them stock their kitchen, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to help keep the food pantry full.”
