It’s that time of year again- no matter what holidays you celebrate, it’s the season for giving and everyone’s stocking up on gifts for friends, family, and themselves too. If you’re shopping for any of these gifts online, did you know that you have the opportunity to support FSR at no additional cost to you when using Amazon Smile or iGive? It’s super easy to sign up, and whether you shop online for all your household essentials or just occasionally for holiday gifts, you could raise money to support FSR’s research and patient programs.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. If you already use Amazon, there’s no reason not to start using Amazon Smile. Just go to smile.amazon.com when you shop and choose FSR as your charity.
Over 1,800 stores online participate in iGive– including places like Walmart, JC Penney, Office Depot, Staples, Expedia, Lands’ End, Groupon, Nordstrom, Dell, Macy’s and Apple. Some stores will donate up to 20% of your purchase to FSR, with most donating at least 1%. This may not seem like a lot, but if you shop online even a few times a month, it could really add up! On average, iGive members end up raising $100 or more for their cause each year. Just sign up (for free) to support FSR, download the iGive button and start shopping!
