Feed it Forward: Gifting without spending this holiday season

I’ve been working with Restaurant.com for the past few months as a blog ambassador and as much as I’ve enjoyed having an excuse to get out and try new restaurants, today’s program is, hands down, my favorite thing yet to share with you about Restaurant.com.

Starting today through December 25, or until the $40 million dollar goal has been met, Restaurant.com is launching its 4th annual Feed It Forward campaign. This campaign launched back in 2008 when the economy was rock bottom and there were so many struggling families and individuals. The idea behind the campaign is paying it forward without spending the extra money you might not have. So givers can give $10 Restaurant.com eGift cards, up to 40 PER DAY, during the holiday season.

You heard me.

appreciate a special meal — and you don’t have to spend any of your own money to do this. Givers can give their gift cards either through Facebook or email and then invite that person to then “Feed It Forward” by logging on to Restaurant.com and giving to others. It is such a simple concept and paying it forward is such a fulfilling accomplishment, I am just so impressed with Restaurant.com’s generosity and spirit.

To me, part of thanking others and paying it forward was especially challenging when I was younger because I had so little money for anything. I plan to share this campaign with my older nieces, not only to send them a gift of a special treat on me but to inspire them to pay it forward to others in their lives who they would like to thank but don’t have the resources of their own to do so.  Thanks to Restaurant.com, spreading cheer has never been quite so easy.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this generous program and spread the word!

Disclosure: I am compensated by Restaurant.com as part of the blog ambassador program but my opinions here are all my own.
