Are you stuck in a rut when it comes to gift giving? Do not just buy the random sweater or tie this year for those hard-to-buy-for folks on your holiday list.
 
Charity gift cards are the new way to give while giving back at the same time.
 
"A charity gift card allows a gift giver to make a charitable donation, and the gift recipient to choose the organization that's going to receive the money" said Erik Marks, Founder of Tisbest.org.
 
Tisbest Philanthropy has seventeen local and 250 national charities to choose from when deciding where to donate the funds. Donation amounts can be made anywhere from $10 to $5,000 and can be split between up to three different charities.
 
CLICK HERE for more information on how to purchase one and a list of the charities that benefit from your donation.
