WeCare Card Giveaway

I was always taught that it is better to give than receive. My grandma Rose opened a soup kitchen that still feeds thousands today. She also did all sorts of charity work and fundraising efforts.  She is my role model and who I strive to be like. There are so many people hurting. I always try to help those in need.  I would love when he did fundraisers at school to raise money for things.  We all know that there are many great charities but what about those who are our friends and families and neighbors?  We went to the St. Patrick's Day event in our town and there was a booth with art work for sale to donate to a teacher with cancer. The art work was done by the children at the elementary school she taught at. I had Noah pick out a picture and I asked them how much for the painting? They said two dollars and I said no. Its ten dollars. I am pretty sure I made their jaw drop. Noah now goes to the elementary school. It made me feel so good to help someone else.  I was also teaching Noah the importance of helping others.

We all have times in our lives when we need a little help. Unfortunately bad things happen to good people and they are left with bills and other needs. There is a random acts of kindness movement that I would like to start. I have the opportunity to share with you about a website called WeCare Card They help you collect donations to help your loved ones.  The best part is the recipient receives 100% of the money.

Have you ever wanted to donate money for something but didn't have the cash on hand? Instead of going to the bank or ATM you can donate online through your credit or debit card.  It also gives your friends and family that might not live close to you a chance to donate too. Sure there is the mail but that can take a while when you don't have a lot of time to wait. Most times they are emergencies . Emergencies do not wait until you can afford it. Signing up is easy. If you have a cause that you would like to raise money for just create an account and share your cause with everyone. I am sure you are wondering how they can claim the money. There are two options. They can request a check or do direct deposit.  There are 16 causes already and they all are definitely worth a donation.

Every Wednesday, is WeCare Wednesdays. WeCare gives away giftcards on their Facebook page every Wednesday. Like them on Facebook so you don't miss out!!

You can also follow them on Twitter to get great updates!!

I have a very special giveaway for you. This isn't the normal giveaway where you win something like a product. I know that sometimes you want to give back to someone and you don't really have the money to do it.  Today is your lucky day! WeCare Card is giving one of my readers the chance to create a cause of the winners choice and WeCare Card will match donations up $100. Of course anyone can share a cause but I think that it is awesome that they will donate too.  I love this idea so much.
