On Black Friday, Avoid the Malls and Fight Global Poverty

By Opportunity International

Today, avoid the long lines at the mall, and give the gift that keeps on giving with a holiday gift card from OptINnow.

Gift cards start at $10 and come in holiday packaging. The recipient goes tooptinnow.org, chooses an entrepreneur and then uses the gift card to fund a microloan. When the loan is repaid, it’s loaned again and again to help many more people build businesses, making it a gift that really does keep on giving.

To buy gift cards, visit optinnow.org/giftcard.
