This Holiday Season, Give Twice
Through our unique partnership with Gap, making a difference in the life of a child is as simple as buying a gift card.
The Gap Give Twice program creates a brighter future for women and youth worldwide. Gap has chosen Communities In Schools and CARE International as their nonprofit partners in this program. Gap customers are encouraged to buy a Gap GiftCard, with two percent of the face value of the card donated to Communities In Schools or CARE. Gap also commissioned a hand-selected group of artists and illustrators to create one-of-a-kind graphic designs for the gift card envelopes, and substantially increased the size of the packaging to make it feel more like a gift.
When ordering a Gap GiftCard online, scroll over the envelope design options to choose one that supports the work of Communities In Schools!
