Regifting for a cause

For several years now, MMI has promoted regifting as a way to save money and the environment during the holidays. This year, in honor of National Regifting Day, we’re shaking things up a bit and highlighting regifting for a cause in addition to our typical regifting exchanges. Contributing some of our regifts to those in need (and encouraging others to do the same) is one way we can give back to the community and support the trend of going green for the holidays. Every little step can make a huge difference!

You too can contribute by donating regifted (or new!) goods to any charitable organization near you (check out Regifting 101: Charitable Donations), or by holding your own charity drive. Remember that your unwanted gifts, no matter how big or small, can very well be a welcome donation to a charitable organization. You know what they say, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Keep in mind that there are still rules to regifting even when you’re giving to a charity, so read up on the rules of regifting before you do, and reduce, reuse, recycle…regift!

Will you be regifting to charity this year? If so, share your acts of kindness in the comment section or at for your chance to win our very desirable prize packages!
