Donate your unused gift cards to help make wishes come true!
Support the Children’s Wish Foundation without spending a dollar—and receive a tax receipt!
Take a look inside your wallet. Do you see a gift card or credit for returned merchandise that has been sitting there for months? If so, you’re not alone: the average Canadian household has over $300 in unredeemed gift cards. In fact, the value of all these unused gift cards exceeds $1 billion every year!
Imagine if the value trapped in these gift cards could be liberated and help make dreams come true for children diagnosed with life-threatening diseases. This would certainly create priceless smiles and memories for the lives of so many Canadians.
Thanks to an innovative partnership between the Children’s Wish Foundation and CardSwap, Canada’s largest gift card marketplace, you can now donate your unused gift cards and receive a tax receipt for the full value of your donation. It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s secure, and every penny of your donation goes directly to the Foundation.
Here’s how it works:
Making a donation of gift cards to us is easy. You can make a donation and receive your official tax receipt in three simple steps:
