This DAV donations post was sponsored by DAV. All opinions are my own.

Are you looking for easy and fun ways to give to charity, including making DAV donations? It’s Christmastime, a time of joy, family, and gift giving. A lot of gift giving. Many businesses make up to half of their annual sales during the hold season! It’s a frenetic time, but also a time of love and of giving.

During this time of giving, more and more of us are shopping online and seeking out ways to do good. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we could actually do good while we are checking off the people on our Christmas lists?? While we are cruising the web buying those goodies we can also give a little back to a good cause, like DAV (Disabled American Veterans), at the same time! I have some really fantastic news. You can, and it’s really easy to set up!

DAV’s Spare Change Program

DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has launched a new program that makes it just that much easier to support disabled veterans! The DAV Spare Change program easily allows donors to round up purchases on a credit or debit card on a monthly basis to automatically donate “spare change” to give to disabled veterans.

DAV’s spare change program is really simple yet powerful and effective. You just “set it and forget it,” but you also know that every purchase you make each and every day gives a little bit to those that have been willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for us all. With the DAV Spare Change program, you can support DAV’s mission that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families, helping more than one million veterans in positive, life-changing ways each year.

During this time of gift giving and present buying, I just love that each purchase I make is also a “swipe for good.” From toys for the kids, to dinner with friends, or decorations for the house, the Spare Change program helps veterans of all generations get the benefits they’ve earned through DAV’s no-cost services. You can do this all while checking off all those gifts on your list. I know your kids have plenty of ideas for you this time of year.

Top 10 Gifts on Our Kids’ Christmas Lists

While talking about this great program, I figured I’d share the top 10 things we have been buying (or trying to buy) this 2020 holiday season. We have three kids, a 15 year old girl, 13 year old boy, and 7 year old boy, so the list is pretty diverse.

  1. Playstation 5
  2. PS5
  3. Playstation 5
  4. Makeup
  5. Playstation 5
  6. Baseball mitt
  7. PS5
  8. Money
  9. Playstation 5
  10. V Bucks

Well, yep, that’s pretty much what we have been dealing with this year. I have a feeling from the online queues, the email newsletters, and the mad dashes to places like Game Stop, that a fair amount of you know what I’m talking about. However, we feel like we made some good purchases despite some of the difficulties trying to score a PS5. The best part, each time we bought something…we did some good, too!

It’s Easy To Participate

Do not worry about signing up. It’s not complicated at all. Believe me. It’s takes a few minutes, literally. The way to sign up and participate really is simple, but powerful! There are are just few steps and you are good to go!  Just Enroll, Shop, Help Veterans. Sound like a plan?

It’s just this easy…

  1. Enroll in the program online by visiting davsparechange.org. Follow the directions and simply link a credit or debit card.
  2. Use your card for holiday or everyday purchases. Simply spend like you normally would, where you normally would.
  3. Every purchase made on your card will automatically round up to the nearest dollar and your spare change is donated directly to DAV to give hope to veterans!

Here’s a Quick Example

  1. A DAV Spare Change donor purchases a toy train for their grandson for $7.84 on a linked debit card or credit card.
  2. DAV automatically “rounds up” that transaction to the next dollar and that spare change, in this example, $0.16.
  3. That $0.16 is donated to the DAV to help injured and ill veterans.

It’s just that simple. But isn’t it awesome?? I just love the entire concept. Even better, this innovative program is kicking off during the holidays and running into the new year. You still have plenty of time to sign up and participate in this awesome program!

I think this is such an awesome way to give back to so many who have given so much. I love how easy DAV makes it to do.

I have to set this Spare Change program immediately! Our veterans have sacrificed so much, and those that have been disabled deserve to get the same kind of help that they so willingly gave to us.
