2014 'You Gift. We Gift.' Trip


  We just returned from another amazing You Gift. We Gift. tour. The tour is part of the overall You Gift. We Gift. programs, which provides needy children unexpected gifts around the holidays.This year marks our second outing as we made the journey from Pittsburgh to Tampa in just four days. Stops on the way include Charlotte, Augusta, Greenville and Gainesville. In each city, we had the chance to visit local family shelters, food banks and nominated children.

I encourage you to check out the recap on the GiftCards.com blog. My son Morris provided most of the updates along with some great photos. Also below is a link to a great feature from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

Thank you to everyone who made this trip possible and to the amazing people we met along the way!
