My family does charitable contributions instead of gifts for Christmas. Tisbest made it fun for my nephews to choose their giving. My mom emailed and called to make sure her donation was given to the correct place and was happy with the customer service. I recommend!!
I help my company create gifts for our clients. TisBest saved the day. My boss wanted something that had our brand on it, and supported a range of charities (our clients have really varied backgrounds). TisBest came through for us - Kyle helped me to get custom cards printed and overnighted to us on 2 days' notice. My boss loved it and the customer feedback is really amazing.
Firstly, the very core of Tisbest is to serve as a medium for people to give to charity, but if you breakdown how much of your purchase goes to charity, you will realize you are better off donating your money directly to a charity of your choosin. After taking out all the admin fees, credit card processing fees, all you have is approximately 50-60% of your money actually going to charity.
Looking back, a TisBest card is a good one-time gift that's best defined as a chachki. Ever wonder what happens to all those cards that go un-redeemed?
If you ever want to buy a charity gift card, think twice! Your money is better served being donated directly to non-profits like Red Cross. Why go through a middle man to donate money, when you can donate directly.
As the CSR Manager for a healthcare company we use TisBest cards as part of our giving program with our clients as well as at industry conferences. We have had nothing but great responses from those we gift with a TisBest card. The ability to give to so many various charities is very attractive component. The staff at TisBest is wonderful to work with on our various programs and they go out of their way to support our marketing and CSR activities.
I have both bought TisBest cards for giving and have worked with the leadership at this company to help develop certain aspects as they have grown. They are an exceptional organization and I recommend them often!
I first learned about TisBest several years ago. At the time, I loved the idea of a charity gift card. Simple. Meaningful. Powerful. Now that I've learned more about TisBest and have had the great pleasure of following their success, I know that the organization itself is second to none. They are dedicated to innovation, constantly iterating to make better and more creative use of their charity gift cards, from branded business cards (I have my own!) to corporate charity cards, the sky's the limit when it comes to the new ideas emanating from TisBest. They're true to their word and fully committed to what they do. Thumbs up all around!

Thank you for your kind words, Megan! Your support means so much to us.
The concept of giving someone a gift that helps others in place of material goods (that rarely get used) is truly revolutionary. It is absolutely perfect for teachers (do they really need one more apple mug?) and relatives (how many bottles of lavender body wash can sit unused in your cabinets?) and even best friends (maybe they've struggled with cancer and would appreciate the ability to support others!) You can customize the cards with your own pictures, but you leave the charity choice up to them! This was by far the best stocking stuffer I've ever received!
