Many of us have gift cards with small balances left on them that can be anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars. Instead of tossing the card, why not donate the remaining balance to schools that need them? All you have to do is visit www.PlasticJungle.com; enter the name of the retailer and the coded information on the card to find out what your exact remaining balance is. Choose the charity option to give to your choice of schools, which are vetted through donorschoose.org. It takes only minutes, and you’ll help a needy school fund its programs.
