This is a great site that allows you to donate to multiple charities, while also partnering with corporations for donations. Great set up!
I bought these charity gift cards for my nieces and nephews for Christmas who are in their late teens, early twenties. My oldest niece spent a lot of time choosing a charity and settled on a children's clean water network which looked great. I love the idea of them being able to pick their own. My other nieces and nephews didn't choose so after 2 months I chose for them. It was good that I was able to send gifts that were giving back and even though the others didn't take the time to search I was able to login to my account and put the money in a charity I liked. So it all worked great. I also like that you can see who has used it and when and they can even leave a thank you note for you.
We have purchased several gift cards from tisbest for friends and teachers. Not only are they always well received, but the customer service is fantastic! The people at tisbest are always willing to help you troubleshoot and even go the extra mile to make sure that things go smoothly. The number and diversity of charities to choose from is outstanding! We will definitely continue to be loyal customers! I highly recommend tisbest to anyone who will listen! Keep up the great work guys!
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!!
This is such a fantastic concept. You give a gift, and the recipient gets to feed a hungry child, save some rainforest or even help cure cancer. What a way to put a smile on your gift recipient's face!
This was my favorite gift of the season! It was really fun letting my friends select the charity. I received such great responses from everyone! It seemed like the recipients took their time selecting the "perfect" charity and most times those charities were close to their hearts. Thank you for such a great idea!
I can truly say I have never received a gift that has touched me more.

What a great idea. This solves the good intent of wanting to donate on a person's behalf but the awkwardness of not knowing if they would appreciate what you pick. It makes both parties active in the process! Great business/philanthropic model!
We had our company holiday party and distributed the charity card. It was amazing! The comments were just stunning -- this meant so much to our employees and the messages that they sent to the CEO were so touching. We had not anticipated how special this would be.
It's not just the funding. Yes, the Charity Gift Cards provide us with a new source of financial support that we could not otherwise reach. But in addition... we think that Charity Gift Cards can start conversations about philanthropy among friends and family--and increase awareness about National Hospice Foundation and our mission.

Our family decided to do something instead of exchanging gifts last Christmas and it turned out that all of us participated. Besides the pleasant feeling of doing something for someone who needs it, do you know how much more time you have without Christmas shopping? Everyone felt good about it and we decided to do it again this year. What fun!

You made my holiday shopping easy and rewarding. I know the gift card recipients will feel the same way.
I spoke to a gentleman the other day at TisBest who was so helpful and gracious and friendly and walked me through the whole process. I'm happy that for once I didn't have to deal with an automated voice situation.
I sent TisBest gift cards to my (far-away) sisters and cousins, and nieces and nephews. I thought they’d be great gifts but what I did not appreciate until I stated to receive notes letting me know how they were spent was how much I would learn about the people receiving them Each one is letting me know what they think is important in the world and why. These small insights into their lives and concerns (especially when we’re separated by many miles) are a super gift to me. So thanks, I’ll be giving a bunch more next year!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been looking for the best way to distribute my money this year and this gives me the opportunity to honor the people in my life.
Thank you for giving me this gift card to save the rare animals.

Charity Gift Cards are an important innovation in the charitable giving space. We hope that Charity Gift Cards will continue their growth trajectory, producing new funds, new donors and increasing social engagement in the virtuous goal of helping others.

This concept gives the recipient a personal stake in giving--as they get to choose a cause that is personally meaningful to them. This is a great introduction to philanthropy--especially for children.

I work with a lot of professional athletes who always want to give back and this is a perfect way to get them to motivate their fans and teammates to donate. You guys are brilliant!
I am absolutely thrilled to have found your website. Each year I donate money in honor of three children who already have an abundance of wealth. I am definitely going to use TisBest. More importantly, I wish you an abundance of success in your pursuit of this outstanding service. I will definitely spread the message.
What a great gift! We are having a good time looking at all the different charities we can donate to. It’s making us aware of so many possibilities we didn’t even know about. Thank you so much for such a thoughtful gift!
This is absolutely inspiring . . . I often make donations as gifts, but the recipient doesn’t get to choose. This is a great way to involve both parties... it’s totally refreshing.
