GameStop Gift Cards for Charity

Posted Sun, Nov 30, 2008 by Morvelaira

A 6-year-old girl has designed a new gift card for GameStop, and every one sold will equal a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Little Miss Mary McKenzie is a frequent shopper at her local store, and often makes drawings for the staff there. When the executives higher up the chain heard about this, they knew she'd make the best design.

“We were already in the planning stages for a holiday card that would benefit our corporate partner, the Make-A-Wish Foundation,” Olivera said. “I heard about Mary’s love of GameStop and her hope to help grant a wish someday for a child, so we asked her to help us design the card.”

For every gift card purchased between now and Dec. 26, GameStop will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $300,000.

Go, buy a gift card now, even if it's for yourself. It's too cute and feel-good not to.
