 The Incentive Gift Card Council (IGCC) is halfway through its annual holiday gift campaign, which aims to raise $30,000 in donations for the Wounded Warrior Project.

“The Wounded Warrior Project assists service men and women and their families throughout the year,” says Rory Smith, director of sales North America for Ovation Incentives and chair of the 2013 Holiday Gift Campaign. “Based on our members’ obvious enthusiasm for this group and their cause, it was an easy decision to partner with the WWP again this year.”

In 2012, members of the IGCC, a strategic industry group of the Incentive Marketing Association, raised more than $30,000 in donated gift cards. This year, the organization is hoping to match that by the Nov. 22 donation deadline. 

Gift cards of all types can be used, whether they are for a hotel room or restaurant chain a family member can use while supporting a loved one in the hospital far from his or her home, or a department store to buy clothing they didn’t pack, or even a spa to provide a few hours respite on the long road to recovery.

The Wounded Warrior Project has received support from many large companies such as Union Pacific and Subway Restaurants, and the organization's work has been documented by many major national news organizations, including the New York Times and CBS News.
