Over the last few months I have been using an app that allows me to purchase gift cards. I can use these cards myself at many different retail outlets and I can also gift them to others. The real wonder of this app is that I’ve been able to donate the discounts that the gift cards offer to Angels Wings. In the last few months I have raised $40 for our cause without spending one additional dime of my money.

How does it work? It really is a simple process. Download the app to your phone, pick a gift card for you or as a gift, purchase the items you were going to anyway, and Angels Wings receives a percentage.

The first time I used this app was at Red Lobster. I purchased dinner for the family and during the payment process I purchased a gift card for the same amount. I paid with a quick scan of a barcode on my phone and Angels Wings received nearly 10% of that purchase as a donation. Many of the most popular retail businesses are on this app such as Cold Stone Creamery, Applebee’s, Lowe’s, Disney, Starbucks, and many others.
