Amazon Smile and iGive benefit Jefferson CAC

Date: January 13, 2015 Categories: Blog

Warmer months are ahead and many people will be shopping on-line in preparation. If you will be hitting on-line retailers for gifts, decorations, summer gear or even completely unrelated items, now is the perfect time to set up your online shopping accounts to make automatic donations to the Jefferson CAC at no additional charge to you!

By visiting AmazonSmile, you can set up your account with Amazon to donate .05 percent of each purchase you make, to help kids in our community be better protected from child victimization. Similarly, when you visit iGive, donations from .05 percent and up can be made to the Jefferson CAC. Currently, 1,519 different online retailers are participating in the iGive program.

The best part is that these programs do not cost our supporters anything extra. Simply shop as you normally would, pay the same price you normally would pay and select the Jefferson Children’s Advocacy Center as your charitable organization for that company’s donation.

Once you have signed up, please encourage your friends and family who shop on-line to do the same. It only takes a minute and can make a world of difference.
