Valentine' Day charitable gift ideas

Valentine’s Day is almost here. And if you haven’t acquired some gifts to give yet, then chances are you need some help. So here are some lovely stress-free last-minute charitable gifts you can give this Valentine’s Day. Even if you already have items to give, it’s always nice to add something extra that can help others.

See below for our list of Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Here’s what you do: Make a charitable donation online — in some instances you can do so in the recipient’s name — then print out an e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. If you want, you can run a Walgreens or CVS (some kind of pharmacy type place), grab a tiny box of chocolates and/or tiny teddy bear, put it together with the charitable gift message/print-out into a pretty gift bag (add tissue paper if possible to pretty it up), which will make the presentation lovely and not make it seem like you waited till the last minute.

Oh, and these are tax-deductible! And you’ll be helping others, while giving the gift. So, it’s a win all around.

Holiday Gift Guide: Last Minute Ideas banner

Christmas Day will be here this Sunday, so right about now you might be in need of some last-minute gifts. There is still some time to shop online and even sneak in some Christmas Eve deliveries. Plus, there’s always the digital gifts route.

You can still order from Amazon and have select gifts physically arrive by Christmas Eve (see details below). There’s also plenty of digital gifts to give: You can also gift ebooks, MP3 music, apps, digital comics, and video game downloads; send a gift card electronically; or make a charitable donation in the recipient’s name. Either email the recipient their gift, or print up an e-card and hand it to them. Take a look at our various Gift Guides for inspiration.

Here’s some last-minute online gift ideas …

GISHWHES Header

Supernatural‘s Misha Collins (Castiel) is about as far from his stern-faced character as you can get. When he isn’t busy trailing and bailing the Winchester boys through and out of danger, he’s busy organizing and promoting the biggest bucket of international fun ever. Don’t believe me? Just ask Guinness!

G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S., which stands for “Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen,” is a worldwide scavenger hunt, where teams try to check as many items off the list as they can… a list made up of whatever Collins & friends warped minds can think of. Some of the items have been: cover yourself in whipped cream and give out hugs, make a portrait of Jensen Ackles out of Skittles, and dress up in clothing made of food. I recently got to speak with g.i.s.h.w.h.e.s. founder and crazy person, Misha Collins, right after his live Facebook sign-up drive, to talk about his unique event.

Check out the interview and the g.i.s.h.w.h.e.s. trailer below.

Matt Damon Jason Bourne Prank for Omaze

The next movie in the Bourne series, Jason Bourne, is set to be released next month on July 29th. As we’ve seen more and more often with the big releases, an Omaze contest to benefit charity has been set up that will see one fan win a trip to Vegas to hang out with Matt Damon.

To help get the word out about the contest, Damon played a prank in which he gives a super secret spy mission to some unsuspecting people who just received a phone from a mysterious stranger. Some of them get a freaked out by it and bail, while others cautiously proceed with the directions given.

You can see how it played out and learn more about the contest below.

Harrison Ford Surprises Star Wars Fans

Omaze has done some great work with the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises to bring a whole lot of money to various charities. The most recent collaboration for a chance to win a walk on role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought in over $4 million dollars, so it makes perfect sense for them to keep the donation party going on behalf of those who need help.

A new collaboration with Omaze is underway that will see someone win a chance to meet the cast of The Force Awakens at the premiere of the movie. And to announce this, they decided to have a little fun and have star Harrison Ford show up and surprise Star Wars fans via webcam to great results. You can read more and watch the video below.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Remembers Leonard Nimoy (Video)

Leonard Nimoy - Mr. Spock

Back in July we found out that Star Trek Beyond, the third entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie franchise, was doing a contest for a chance to win a role in the movie (similar to what former Trek director J.J. Abrams and company did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens) all in the name of charity.

That contest is in its last week, and to make the final stretch special it was decided to dedicate the week to the great Leonard Nimoy, the Star Trek legend who sadly passed away back in February. The contest benefits many charities but in order to honor Nimoy, a charity that he cared deeply for, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is being spotlighted.

A short video was released to announce the news and remember Nimoy, with current Spock actor Zachary Quinto fittingly front and center. You can watch the video below.

Star Wars Art Awakens Header

If you love original limited edition art as much as we do, then the upcoming competition should have you excited. Today, Lucasfilm and HP are teaming up for an all new Art Awakens competition. As the press release tells us, Art Awakens will help celebrate the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens with “an exciting new program for Star Wars fans old and new, across the country to revitalize creativity by ‘Bending the Rules’ of the Force, themed around a galaxy far, far away.”

While it is exciting to see professional artists show their creativity seen in pieces displayed in galleries like Mondo, Gallery 1988, or Bottleneck Gallery, Art Awakens will give amateur artists the opportunity for a chance to have their own work displayed in a professional gallery. Check out the full details and list of rules below.

Star Trek Beyond Contest

Remember when that video was released with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams standing in front of a full-size X-wing to announce a contest for charity in which the winner would score a walk-on role in the movie? Well, those of you who prefer the Star Trek universe now have the same opportunity.

It’s been announced that a similar contest is now live that will lead to someone winning a walk-on role in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, the rebooted movie franchise’s trilogy-maker. Better yet, those who don’t win the big prize can still win a set visit. The contest is done in a crowdfunding style, where you obtain entries in the contest by purchasing perks, which is a big plus. Instead of blindly throwing $10 in and hoping you win, $10 gets you a digital badge and 100 chances to win. $50 gets you a digital thank you video from the cast and crew of the movie and 500 entries. $10,000 to $15,000 gets you props from the three most recent Trek movies and 100,000 to 150,000 entries. But good luck competing with the person who drops $100,000 for a replica captain’s chair and 1,000,000 entries.

You can get all the details about the contest below, and also watch a video of the cast (Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, and newcomer Idris Elba) announcing the contest, which, by the way, ends with a little dance party.
