As you may know, when you get a credit card through this site, it generates a commission*. Since that also creates a conflict of interest, I donate those commissions to charity. This year, readers helped to generate almost $3,000 for Cradles to Crayons.
Cradles To Crayons
Cradles to Crayons is a 4-Star Charity Navigator organization whose mission is to provide essentials for children. As they put it on their website, “Poverty is a year-round condition, and young children outgrow essentials like clothes, toys and books pretty quickly. As a result, our mission is not based on a “one and done” philosophy. We undertake four major initiatives each year to serve kids and families all year long.”
C2C gives items like toys and clothing free of charge to families and have locations in Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago (as well as an upcoming one in New York). They only give out new items, or ones that appear new, so that children can feel good about themselves. Don’t worry, non-new donations go to a different service partner.
It’s an outstanding place to volunteer and the folks who work there truly care. We’ve brought our kids in to help sort clothes and toys, and it helps them connect with other children who aren’t as fortunate. I’ve seen first-hand how dedicated the team is and that the money helps the people that it is supposed to help, so I feel very comfortable giving to them.
So thank you again for your visiting my site this year. I hope that next year will be even better!
*I do ask that, if you saw a credit card offer somewhere else first, that you get it from the original website where you found it. Thanks!
