The Top 5 Charities We’re Donating to This Year

As it’s the holiday season, many of us are taking time to reflect on how fortunate we are to be celebrating in good health surrounded by family and friends. But as we all know, not everyone is so lucky. As the saying goes, it is better to give than to receive. If you are looking for a last minute gift or haven’t given a charitable donation yet this year, today is the perfect day to do it. Not sure what to buy for the person who has everything? A charitable donation in his or her name is always a great gift. Looking for one last tax write-off for 2013? We are super stoked on these five charities, and we think you will be too.

With a mission to fulfill the needs of nonprofits through corporate product donations, Good360 is helping companies give back to the communities in which they work. They believe you can win them all by creating corporate, nonprofit and environmental “win-win” outcomes for unsold products and excess inventory. Because why should an unsold product go to a landfill when it can help someone in need? Donate Here
