Host a Super Bowl Party – Help Rebuild Haiti
Jeff Shinabarger is a good friend who has created multiple movements of compassion such as Gift Card Giver and Plywood People. His latest idea has to do with the Super Bowl and relief for Haiti. Please take a moment to read the following message from Jeff and join us as we bring much needed care for Haiti.
Gift Card Giver launches:
SUPER GIVER PARTY
Feb 7, 2010
A Super Bowl Party Benefiting Haiti Relief
The super bowl is the house party of the year. We know, you will be at a house watching the big screen with your friends, eating junk food, yelling for no reason and voting on what commercial was the funniest.
We need you, yes you, the one with the cheese dip in your lap. While you are cheering, we need you to help us collect gift cards to help with relief efforts in Haiti. Every person has an unused gift card ($8 billion annually) and you can help do something super by collecting those cards to support a great need.
Party with a purpose. Simply, have a super giver bowl and put gift cards in it instead of chips. When you’re wiping up soda spills and filling your dishwasher, you can throw the gift cards in an envelope to Gift Card Giver and you’ll have given your party even more purpose. But don’t forget to tell your friends to bring their gift cards!
1. Tell your friends to bring gift cards to your super bowl party.
2. Put a bowl between the cheese dip and ice cubes, make people give.
3. Watch our video at halftime to share the SUPER idea. (Video is also embedded below.)
4. Put the gift cards in an envelope: Gift Card Giver, PO Box 17628-Atlanta, GA 30316
5. Help Haiti people in great need.
(Update: Jeff stated recently on a blog comment at Plywood People: We just confirmed a partnership with HOPE International that has people on the ground working through Microfinance initiatives to rebuild the country. All gift cards collected and sent to Gift Card Giver will be sent directly to their projects to invigorate the already great work they are doing.)
