I got an email this week about a fun way to give to a charity. The Board of Visitors, an auxiliary board at Children’s National Medical Center, annually hosts the Care for Kids Card program – you spend $50 for a card and you get 20% off of your purchases at local DC area stores. The $50 you spend on the card goes towards the Children’s National Media Center and you get 20% off at all of these stores.
That’s a pretty thick booklet of stores and not a bad deal, especially with the holidays around the corner. The promotion starts today (if you go to the merchant list it will show you all the stores that sell cards in store as well, so you don’t have to wait to get it online. I definitely thought this was a cute way to be charitable and save a few dollars so I had to share it with you guys.
