RISE Life Services has many avenues of fundraising we use to help us grow. There are fundraising events, direct mailings, and social channels. One online resource that we utilize is Amazon Smile. Everyone shops on Amazon. It seems to be one of the largest online shopping resources currently because they offer almost everything and deliver fast and efficiently. They also help charities like ours.
Amazon Smile is a part of Amazon.com, where those who would like to support sign-up and select the charity of their choice. Then, Amazon Smile donates 0.5% of all eligible purchases to that named charity at no fees or additional cost to the shopper. RISE has been successful with this source and we do receive donations each month into our account through this service. Amazon Smile also provides us with materials to share on social media and in emails to promote more member support. They email Facebook and Twitter banners with text and links.
Why can’t we shop and have a feel-good experience where we get to give back at the same time? Find out more at AmazonSmile.com by clicking here.
