Who says that the buying part of the holidays can’t save the world? We didn’t do our part on Small Business Saturday, because the dogs and I spent a lot of time actually ON the beach, chasing birds, chatting with fishermen and just enjoying the day, and now Cyber Monday is almost over…
…but I want to be sure you know about AmazonSmile and OneCause. Both sites allow you to shop as always, but your purchases support your favorite non-profit. Yes, you have to click over and actually sign in, but otherwise, AmazonSmile links to your existing Amazon account and life goes on. Prime still works and everything. I just made a Land’s End purchase through OneCause a little while ago, and while I do like Ebates, those few dollars can combine with other JLC shoppers’ efforts to make a difference in our community.
Of course, if you are looking for a cause, feel free to type in Junior League of Charlottesville on either/both sites… I can assure you that any and all funds earned from such will go straight into our fundraising accounts, and all proceeds from our fundraising efforts go straight to JLC programs, such as our new literacy programs.
I hope you’re sitting down; I also did some knitting and reading at the beach, but you’ll have to wait for another day and more time (and energy) to hear more about that.
