For all those anxious about what to get for the holidays, Playgroup and RoBG have worked together to make it easy, convenient and fast.

As part of a fundraiser for Playgroup, they sell gift cards to all sorts of merchants and receive a percentage of gift cards sold.  For everyday purchases such as Starbucks, Whole Foods, California Pizza Kitchen to holiday time purchases such as American Airlines, Hilton and Marriott.

Best part, it doesn’t cost you anything more than what you purchase in gift cards.  If you buy $25 Starbucks card, you get $25 worth of stuff at Starbucks (that is at least one day of coffee :-).  The merchant (Starbucks) then donates 9% to Playgroup (or $2.25), for doing nothing more than purchasing a gift card to use for everyday purchases.  Each merchant’s donation is different but you get every dollar you purchase in gift cards at the merchant/store, costs you nothing more to help Playgroup.

As a long time and important part of our community, Playgroup is a unique asset and like any non-profit, struggles to provide high quality education and reasonable prices.  Fundraising like this is a key part of ensuring it can purchase new books, chairs and other items to help our children develop and grow.

There are lots and lots of choices, for just about any purchase you do, you can get a gift card.  Playgroup will be at the Holiday Party on Sunday, they will have the following gift cards on hand:

  • Starbucks,
  • Whole Foods,
  • Gap,
  • Shutterfly,
  • Jamba Juice,
  • Restoration Hardware,
  • Ruth’s Chris

Additionally, Playgroup can take orders from any of the following merchants and deliver them to you by December 13th, in plenty of time for the holidays.

Congratulations on a terrific website. I really like being able to stay in touch besides via the Glenite.
Also, your gift site is so “downtown” and much fun. I will find something to buy to support Play Group which both my kids and grandson attended. The kids are 51, 48, and Alex is 26.
Happy holiday and happy new year.

Thank you Roberta, your support is appreciated!
