Jan 11 - Card Swap for a Cause

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 11, 2014

Victoria, BC – The first week of January is typically a busy time for returning and exchanging gifts that weren’t quite right. But what if that gift was a gift card? Swap it for a Mayfair gift card on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at the 5th annual “Card Swap for a Cause”. For the second year in a row the event will support Victoria Hospice, which means that just because the holiday season is over, the spirit of giving doesn’t have to be.

Here’s how it works: Have a gift card you don’t really want? On January 11th only, you can exchange it for a Mayfair gift card of equal value (up to $50). Your old gift card is then donated to Victoria Hospice and will be put to use to directly support hospice care in the community.  Mayfair anticipates they will award Victoria Hospice with the equivalent of up to $15,000 in gift cards to support its fundraising efforts. 

The Card Swap for a Cause gift card exchange program is limited to one card per customer up to a value of $50 while quantities last. For more information about Card Swap for a Cause, please visit www.mayfairshoppingcentre.com

This is the third year, and second year in a row that Victoria Hospice has been chosen to be the recipient of this program. Cumulatively upwards of $20,000 in gift cards have been donated to Hospice to leverage fundraising efforts and support end-of-life care in Victoria.
