So, do any of you ever shop at Toys R Us, Best Buy, Family Christian Stores, Kmart, the Gap, Target, Lowes, Walmart, or the Apple Store?
Do you buy products from Avon, Bath and Body Works, CVS, the Vitamin Shoppe, or SAMS Club?
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t make purchases from at least one of these companies. What if I told you that you could make your regular purchases from these and a multitude of other stores while getting deals…..and more importantly, earning money to designate to a variety of global humanitarian projects?
If you haven’t already met them, may I introduce you to Pure Charity, an organization that has partnered with hundreds of companies, that allows you to make purchases that send rewards to your own personal giving fund. You can then use this fund to back projects around the world that are important to you….maybe rescuing sex trafficked girls in Cambodia, providing clean drinking water wells to countries around the world, or help start micro-businesses in Honduras.
Or, perhaps you have a heart for a specific humanitarian aid project or NGO and want to get them on the Pure Charity fundraising grid…there are options for that.
Better yet, Pure Charity also supports shopping local, so you can locate small businesses in your area that you can partner with to help grow them while you are raising money for worldwide needs.
Finally, that instant, visual gratification that all we Americans need….we can track our progress, where our money goes, and how our money has helped projects we are backing. A little eye candy incentive, if you will.
I love this program because it is a super practical way for people like me, a busy mom of little ones, or others who can’t go and get involved in projects themselves, to have a chance to directly impact humanitarian needs around the world, and then be able to tangibly track results. Pure Charity has almost made it too easy for us….we have to shop anyway, so why not make our dollars go further?
I urge you to check Pure Charity out, and beware Facebook friends, I will be doing a little stalking by sending you FB invites. At least take a look at what Pure Charity has to offer before you pass up the invitation.
