Skip the crowds this Christmas. Avoid the parking lot, the packaging, the plastic and the pfuss. By giving philanthropy this Christmas, you’ll be providing a meaningful gift that continues to give to the artist and also reward your lucky recipient for the life of the philanthropy.
Enter your recipient’s name at checkout, and we’ll email you a printable certificate to give them on Christmas morning. Your selected artist will then engage directly with your recipient to provide them directly with individual perks and rewards. The pure joy of sharing a meaningful, authentic gift such as philanthropy is unparalleled.
