Paying it Forward.
by Maria Pilar Clark
Americans are favoring charitable giving over commercial gifting these days, and CharityGiftCertificates.org offers a way for the socially conscious to think outside of the gift box with a pioneering, recipient-designated charity gifting service.
The gifts are actually charitable donations. The giver simply chooses the 100% tax deductible amount to be donated, while the receiver gets to select the charity from an extensive online list of 100 major causes. Up to three charities can be selected, making the end result positive for society and meaningful for all those involved.
