Charitable Gift Cards - Buzzword #7 - on Marketplace

Marketplace ran the first in its series on philanthropy on Friday - focusing on charitable gift cards (which regular readers will remember came in at number 7 on this year's buzzword list). Here's the story and here's the buzzword list. The story also refers to the phenomenon I've buzzed as "good gifting" - giving charitable gifts instead of "stuff."

Today's (Monday's) segment looks at Muslim charities and the reviewing agencies (such as WiseGiving of BBB) that help donors and organizations document that good work is being done for the dollars.

The segment I taped on Marketplace should play Tuesday December 9 - so tune in to your local public radio station and let me know what you think.
