How can I help? Let us know if you would like to make a donation. Sometimes as little as $1 or $5 can make a difference! We will happily provide a tag for you to put on our tree. You can sign your gift or leave it anonymous. It's up to you! If you would like to make a larger donation, you may split it up over as many tags as you would like. Thank you for your helping hand!
Why did you include a Bible verse on your Giving Tree? What if I find that offensive? We understand that there are many different religions and views/beliefs when it comes to religion. Some do not believe in religion at all. That is exactly what America is built on - the ability to have differing opinions and the ability to freely express them! The owners of Gluten Free Sensations happen to be Christian so that is how the Giving Tree is referenced. We can all use a helping hand from time to time. The bottom line is that in our lives we have a responsibility to "pay it forward" and this is our way of helping our neighbors, friends and community.
Is my donation tax deductible? At this time, unfortunately it is not. When this option becomes available we will let you know!
How many tags can I pull? Again, this is on your honor. It is not for us to judge how much need a person has. If we see abuse we will set limitations. Change will not be given. Any left-over amount will be written on another tag and placed back on the Giving Tree.
... and God's grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. Acts 4: 33 and 34
What is the Giving Tree? Gluten Free Sensations believes in giving back. 10% of our store profits are donated to the Giving Tree. All donations are written on a sticky note and placed directly on the tree. When someone enters the store that needs a helping hand, they can take a sticky note from the Giving Tree and use that as a portion of their payment. No questions asked.
We believe that everyone that needs gluten free, should be able to eat gluten free. Let's face it - reality is that gluten free foods are expensive. Just because you need gluten free, does not mean that it is affordable. That's where the giving tree comes in.
Who can pull a sticky note from the Giving Tree? We trust that the Giving Tree will be a blessing to those truly in need. We are simply operating on your honor and integrity. Your honesty will keep our Giving Tree alive for many years to come.
