Valentine’s Day 2018 has arrived and love is in the air. Whether you’re checking the clock every fifteen minutes in anticipation of a romantic dinner for two, or gearing up for a Galentine’s Day binge-watching session with Leslie Knope, we have great news. The perfect Valentine’s Day gift has never been easier to find—or more meaningful to purchase—thanks to Campus Causes, our college fundraising platform (even for our procrastinators out there: hint *eGift cards* hint).
All you have to do is visit Campus Causes, choose a fundraiser that aligns with a cause you want to support and shop-to-raise from the world’s leading brands and retailers. For the special guy in your life, might we recommend a pair of classic Duck Boots from L.L.Bean, an outdoor staple for every wardrobe, or a new MacBook Pro, perfect for creative projects? Or for your leading lady, spoil her with Target’s latest chic interiors or her favorite line of beauty products from Sephora.
Purchases like these earn cash back for college students raising money for noble causes. Here is a small sample of the fundraisers you can support with this year’s Valentine’s Day gift:
Penn State THON, the world’s largest student-run philanthropy, has tapped into the power of shop-to-raise fundraising with Campus Causes to augment its current efforts and raise more awareness and funds For The Kids.

This spring, StevensTHON will be dancing the night away at their annual dance marathon to bring the community together over a shared passion of providing monetary and emotional support For The Kids at their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
