Become A Season’s Giver

Think about it: Sacrifice an aesthetically-iffy sweater, an itchy nightgown, a “bored” game, your 7th pair of slipper socks, or someone else’s idea of a “funny” read–and save lives.

Seem like a fair trade? We think so!

It’s called the Season’s Givings campaign. Rather than a pile of unwanted (not to mention environmentally wasteful) presents this holiday season, receive the greater satisfaction of doing good. Simply ask friends, family and colleagues to forgo pesky holiday gifts to you and instead donate to a high-impact charity of your choice, thoroughly vetted by independent charity evaluators like The Life You Can Save, GiveWell, and Giving What We Can.


It’s a very low-time investment, high-impact way for an individual–or group–to raise hundreds or thousands of dollars for proven charities. Perfect for students or those who, while they may not have a lot of cash themselves, know or work with those who do.

So, join us–become a Season’s Giver and donate your Christmas, you won’t be sorry. Do it alone or make it a group project. Promote the campaign all around. Then watch your network’s year-end donations come rolling in as you rack up the satisfaction of knowing that, for you and yours, the “gimme! gimme!” holidays truly became a season of giving.
