*Expired* The Home Depot $50 Giveaway

by Freebies4Mom on February 15, 2009 7:16 pm

A gift card to The Home Depot is still the perfect gift to give (and receive) and now purchasing one donates money to a worthy cause. I’d like to share with you how The Home Depot is raising money to preserve Dr. Martin Luther King’s history papers. And I’d like to give one of my lucky readers a $50 gift card to The Home Depot.

Learn more about how The Home Depot is raising money by offering a “Dream” gift card:
Through Feb. 28, The Home Depot is offering a commemorative “Dream” gift card celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. When consumers purchase the collector’s edition “Dream” gift card, The Home Depot will donate five percent of all sales to the Center for Civil and Human Rights, up to $1 million dollars. The donation will assist in the building of a permanent exhibition home for his personal writings and papers.

The collection of original documents by Dr. King includes more than 10,000 items, among them 7,000 handwritten notes spanning from 1946 to 1968. They include drafts of his “I Have a Dream” speech, his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” other theological writings and his Nobel Peace Prize addresses. The King Papers will be part of the exhibition offering of The Center for Civil and Human Rights. The Dream cards can be purchased at any store, or online at homedepot.com/dream.

I recommend considering giving The Home Depot gift card for any type of gift because they have stuff there that we all need – like light bulbs and supplies for any home improvement project. Ok, they have fun stuff too so don’t feel like your practical gift can’t be fun! They sell all kinds of decor for your house, and it’s always fun to shop for new tools to use around the house or for a hobby.

And if you use Ebates for your online purchases, you should know that you can earn 3% cash back right now and new Ebates users get $5 cash back on any $5 purchase. Maybe you could even tell your gift recipient about Ebates and help them maximize that gift card?

We are building a chicken coop to minimize our dependancy on the grocer and to get fresh eggs. This would definitely help in our efforts. In fact, DH redeemed his Amex points and received $200 in Home Depot cards already towards this venture.

I would use the Home Depot card for paint. My downstairs bathroom needs some DARK paint. Why?? Because my little boys leave handprints/smudges on the walls by the light switch, towel rack, etc. I’m thinking dark brown paint won’t show smudges. Thanks for the giveaway.

We went in together to buy land with my father and sister and then my sister lost her job and my husband just got layed off. We are trying to find a way to move onto the land to save rent money to build a house but no one has the money to do anything like that right now, and my husband can’t stop talking about the low prices of lumber at home depot. This would make a great birthday gift for him.
