Charity and Non-Profit Supporters across Canada are taking gift-giving one step further this holiday season by shopping online using the innovative fundraising site, ShopandShare.ca.
Thanks to ShopandShare.ca, being charitable has never been easier. Each online purchase made through the website generates free donations for each customer’s chosen charity or non-profit. The website operates all year long, but donations roll in particularly fast during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend thanks to all the fantastic deals available on the site.
“Most people feel more charitable this time of year, but not everyone is able to give, especially with all the extra expenses during the holidays,” said ShopandShare.ca founder and CEO Richelle Skrilec. “We’ve made it easy to support local charities and non-profits, simply by shopping online and buying the exact same things you would normally buy, from the same retailers, without spending a penny more.”
ShopandShare.ca users can find all their favorite retailers on the site, such as Sears, Chapters/Indigo, Expedia, Amazon, ToysRUs, Old Navy, Booking.com, Home Depot, and many more. They can view the donations generated by their purchases on the ShopandShare.ca website, and purchases are shipped directly from the retailers.
Supporters simply set up a free account on the site, choose which Canadian charity or non-profit they want to support, then follow the links to hundreds of popular online stores and travel sites. It doesn’t cost shoppers a penny more to purchase through the site, but a percentage of the money spent is automatically allocated to their designated charity or non-profit. The donation amounts vary between retailers but are clearly listed on the website and generally range from 1-10%.
There are numerous Canadian non-profits and charities benefiting from the donations raised by the website, including; schools and daycares, animal rescue groups, sports teams and clubs, health support groups, community services groups, churches, camps, and more. It’s a free and easy fundraising program and everything is automated, which means that no extra volunteer hours are required to participate. It’s truly a win-win for everyone involved, and all Canadian non-profits and charities are encouraged to register.
