San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2012
The holiday season, or Season of Giving, is a time for expressing appreciation to family members and friends through gifts and get-togethers. It is also traditionally a time to show generosity to those who are struggling and may need a helping hand.
Starting November 23, 2012, just in time for Cyber Monday 2012, CommonKindness is making it possible for Amazon holiday shoppers to raise funds for charities and the volunteers who make good things happen for the less fortunate.
The way it works is simple. As shoppers make their purchases via the Amazon shopping portal on CommonKindness.com [http://www.commonkindness.com/coupon/amazon CommonKindness will donate 20 percent of the revenue it receives for those purchases to America’s favorite 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations.
Because Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer, charities have a lot to gain on Cyber Monday if enough shoppers make their purchases through the CommonKindness.com portal.
“Americans love to volunteer and give to organizations that help others, but economic pressures have reduced the amount of time and money we have available,” says Sarah Schloemer, president of CommonKindness.com. “Like our money-saving coupons, the CommonKindness.com Amazon portal enables everyone to generate funds for nonprofit organizations while they shop."
In 2011, Cyber Monday set the record for biggest online shopping sale day, and it looks like Cyber Monday 2012 will follow suit, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The news agency reports that while many consumers took advantage of amazing sales on Black Friday, Cyber Monday will offer even better opportunities for holiday shopping bargains.
