Holiday Gift Cards


Help make the holidays special for Braid youth and their families.

Most of the youth in Braid's program live with relatives (grandmothers or great-grandmothers) who have many children in their care. Every year we send them gift cards for the holiday season that they can use for toys, gifts, food, and whatever else they need.

You can help by purchasing a gift card yourself or by collecting them from co-workers, community groups, and friends. Each one will make a difference for a Braid family!

All gift cards are appreciated, especially those for Target, Amazon, and Safeway. We need to receive gift cards no later than December 18.

Complete this short form to let us know to expect your cards and to get the mailing address and other details.

If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation for us to purchase gift cards, you can do so using the form below. Please be sure to put "holiday gift cards" in the Comment section.
