If you want to give the "Gift of Clef" this holiday season by go online at www.westernunion.com/wyclef and send a gift and greeting card to a family member, friend or loved one. The cost is only $5 and you can load the card with anywhere from $1-$100 and add a personal message on the greeting card. Western Union is also offering FREE shipping on regular mail!

A great feature of the card is that it is covered by Visa’s zero liability policy, which means cardholders are protected from unauthorized use. Once received, the recipient calls a toll-free number to activate the card— unlike other over the counter gift cards that are active when purchased. If lost or stolen the recipient can have the card replaced.
