Actually, everyone reading this can make a dramatic difference in the lives of aHUS patients and their families! How often do you use an internet search engine such as Google or Bing to explore an interest area or to find information on the Web? Do you ever shop online? Join our aHUS patients and families at iGive.com and iSearch.iGive.com and - at absolutely no cost to you- The Foundation for Children with Atypical HUS will receive a cash donation. Here's how it works.....
At iGive.com, you enter through their website to shop at at more than 750+ online retailers, including Amazon, Gap, JC Penney. QVC, Best Buy, eBay, and hundreds more! When you enter their shopping portal, please enter "atypical HUS" to register us as your favorite charity and iGive.com will automatically send a percentage (from 0.8% to a whopping 26.3%) of your purchases to The Foundation for Children for Atypical HUS. That's it.... so simple, yet the pennies quickly could add up with more than 200+ Facebook Fans to support our aHUS research and community goals.
Coupon codes and discounts are gladly accepted at iGive.com and you can still scope out the best deal by comparison shopping! If you're surfing the web and use their companion site at iSearch.iGive.com, they'll donate 2 cents for every website you surf through. How easy is that? If you're going to use a search engine or shop online anyway, why not benefit our aHUS families and patients at the same time? It's free and takes very little effort....heck, iGive.com even lets you download a toolbar that automatically links you to iGive.com and actually displays your (tax deductible!) contribution totals.
Know any small business owners or office managers? Hey, they order office supplies all the time, right? At iGive.com, you can shop online at Office Depot or Staples for example and score a tax deductible contribution to The Foundation for Children with Atypical HUS. (For example, 123 Injets offers to send The Foundation a 13.6% donation based on your total purchase with them.)
If you know anyone who travels regularly for business (or know a friend/relative who does), ask them to register us as their favorite charity at iGive.com and book flights/hotel through Expedia or Orbitz or car rentals through Enterprise. Perhaps the corporate office can send office flowers through 1-800-flowers..... use your imagination!
As the holidays approach, many of your extended family members will shop online or travel - wouldn't it be wonderful if they found the perfect present or booked a flight home and at the same time donated to aHUS through iGive.com? Please let everyone know how they can help, whether it's getting Fido's needs at 1-88-PetMeds or a gift subscription for Aunt Gladys at MagsForLess (10% donation) or ValueMags (20% donation). A subscription to the Wall Street Journal nets a hefty 26.3% donation - plus a nice tax deduction to boot!
You'll find a link to iGive.com in the Links Box on the Home Page, or you can type in iSearch.iGive.com and start surfing online - both are EASY great ways to support the work of The Foundation for Children with Atypical HUS. Why? We need your help, it's quick and easy for you to do (asking all your friends,neighbors, co-workers, etc. to join in and help us out) and because.....
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. (W. J. Cameron)
