ELGIN, Ill., April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In observance of Earth Day, April 22, 2012, and Arbor Day, April 27, 2012, and to encourage its new and existing customers to "go green," National Gift Card Corporation (NGC) announced today a special donation for the purchase of NGCecodes orders made on Arbor Day.
One percent of the proceeds from all NGCecodes orders placed on April 27, 2012, will be donated to the Arbor Day Foundation, one of the world's largest tree planting organizations. In addition, NGC team members are making plans for local tree-planting activities in Elgin, its new corporate headquarters location since last June. The 15,000 square foot building, located at 600 Church Road, houses more than 30 NGC employees handling gift card ordering, fulfillment, storage and administration to serve its nationwide network of customers and retail business partners.
The NGCecodes program allows gift card customers the ability to order and deliver digital gift cards electronically to recipients. Electronic delivery of gift cards is becoming a growing cost-saving and environmentally-friendly trend.
"We like to think of ourselves as a company concerned about the environment year-round by offering the NGCecodes program as an attractive and 'green' alternative, offering the same variety, flexibility, and customization options as traditional plastic gift cards. Since making NGCecodes available, we've seen increased interest from our customers in using this option," said NGC President Adam Van Witzenburg. He added that digital gift cards delivered through the secure NGCecodes platform are as easy to use as traditional gift cards, whether the recipient redeems the gift card code at an online shopping site or a traditional brick and mortar establishment.
Van Witzenburg noted the NGCecodes program offers a large variety of major retail and dining gift cards available for electronic delivery. Customers may choose to purchase bulk quantities for their own delivery, or have NGC handle delivery via its individual fulfillment program.
