Dreading More "Stuff" This Christmas?

Causes gift card
With the holiday season just around the corner, we're sure to be bombarded with ads for gifts that end up in the attic — or a landfill. Instead of giving material things this year, consider charitable options. The Sierra Club's own Sponsor a Wild Place offering is a good one, if we do say so ourselves.

Or, buy a Causes gift card. Causes is a three-year old company co-founded by Sean Parker of Napster and Facebook fame. It's already got 119 million users who've raised upward of $27 million for nonprofits. And it's bringing charity gift cards to more than 800 Safeway and Vons stores throughout California. Buy a card for someone, and your recipient can then go online to pick a cause close to their heart — one option is to funnel the gift money to the Sierra Club.
