FAQs

WHERE DOES THE MONEY FROM MY PURCHASE GO?

Your gift purchase is a donation supporting CARE’s work. CARE delivers lasting change to some of the world’s poorest communities. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.

 

HOW MUCH DOES SHIPPING COST?

Because these are symbolic CARE Packages, there are no pesky shipping costs to pay and 100% of your donation goes to CARE!

 

WHAT WILL THE PERSON I BUY A GIFT FOR RECEIVE?

The person you buy a gift for will receive a card of your choosing. You can deliver it as an e-card that includes a personal message from you along with a photo of the gift you chose in their honor. You can also download a printable card to personalize and send.

 

HOW DO I SEND THE CARD?

Before putting a gift in your CARE Package you must select which method you'd like your recipient to receive their card.

E-CARD

  1. Select a gift from the Gifts of Lasting Change catalog
  2. Under SELECT CARD TYPE click SEND AN E-CARD
  3. Customize the card with a personal message to the person you’ve chosen to honor with a gift of lasting change.
  4. Please fill in all of the required information.
  5. For each item, please enter only one email address in the email address field. If you’re sending the same item to more than one person, please select the item again and enter each recipient separately.
  6. Put another way, only one item can appear in an e-card. If you’re buying multiple items for the same person, you can send them one e-card for each item. Alternately, you can send one e-card with a personal note saying you bought several gifts.
  7. Click DONE.
  8. Click ADD TO CARE PACKAGE.
  9. Continue shopping or go to checkout to complete your order.

We are working to add new e-card functions. Please email us at caregifts@care.org and let us if you have any suggestions about how we can improve the e-cards.
