The holidays are a time of giving.
For most people that means Christmas gifts for family and friends, but a Pasadena nonprofit is allowing people to give in a more meaningful way. The Charity on Top Foundation can create custom gift cards for both businesses and consumers that allow the recipients to choose the charity they want to support.
The foundation, a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was established in August and many gift cards have already been sold.
"We've sold maybe a couple hundred to friends and family and some to a few companies," said Kathy Selders, president and co-founder of the foundation. "The companies are giving them out as holiday cards to vendors and employees."
