You’re never too busy to take the time to give – even during the holiday season.

When you’re shopping online with Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Piperlime now through December 20, you have the chance to give back to the Boys &Girls of America. If you don’t need your order by Christmas Eve and select the free 7-9 day free shipping option, Gap Inc. will donate $1 to the organization to help kids in need.

The Boys & Girls Club has been an important community partner for Gap Inc. since the beginning. Our founder, Don Fisher, took the time to volunteer and support the kids of theorganization, even as the Gap grew from one store to a global, multi-brand organization.

“I can’t tell you exactly what it was about at-risk youth that motivated Don but it was certainly more than just providing them a safe place to go after school,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco president Rob Connolly. “Don understood ‘value’, we all know that, but I love the fact that he saw significant value in children who others were very willing to write off and, too, happy to forget.”

So this season, in thetradition of Don’s vision and Gap Inc’s commitment to “Do more”, as you cross off your “to do” list, take a little time to give – with one click.
