TOMS Shoes E-Gift Card


TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.

Since its beginning in May 2006, TOMS has given over 150,000 pairs of shoes to children in need through the purchases of caring customers. Because of their customers’ support, TOMS plans to give more than 300,000 pairs of shoes to children in need around the world in 2009.

It’s not too late to send an e-gift card and give One for One.

Animal Humane Society of Minnesota

Picture 5A Snow Angel Stocking Stuffer is a sponsorship package ($25 – $100) that makes a great last-minute gift for the holidays. When purchasing a sponsorship in a loved one’s name, you help shelter, feed and provide medical care for animals currently in the Humane Society’s care.

You can send a last-minute Snow Angel e-card and the lucky recipient will also get a photo of their Snow Angel and warm fuzzies that last much longer than a gift card. Click here to find out more.
