Free Ways to Help Prairie Creek Community School Raise Much-Needed Funds.
In a follow-up to the development committee’s fundraising update earlier this week, Community Connections wants to let you know about a few easy ways to earn money for PCCS doing things you already do.
1.Shop on-line at over 1700 stores in the iGive network!
Every time you shop at any of the 1,700+ online stores in the iGive network, a portion of the money
you spend (from 0.4 – 26%) benefits Prairie Creek Community School. It's a free service, and you'll never pay more when you reach a store through iGive. In fact, smart shoppers will enjoy iGive's repository of coupons, free shipping deals, and sales. To get started, just create your free iGive
account. Then whenever you are shopping on-line go to iGive and click through to the stores. Some stores included are Target, Best Buy, Kohls, the Apple Store, Groupon, Shutterfly, Amazon, Sierra Trading Post, Umi, Macy’s, Travelocity, Creative Kidstuff, and so many more! Just buy the things you were planning on buying anyway and earn money for our school! > Start iGiving at: http://www.iGive.com/PrairieCreekCommunitySchool
If you install the iGive Buttonto your browser you will automatically earn money on qualifying purchases even if you don't go to iGive first.
2.Shop at Amazon.com via Amazon Smile
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support PCCS every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate .5% of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. (And, if you link to AmazonSmile via iGive.com you can increase your earnings from Amazon to 1.3% for PCCS!)
> Start AmazonSmile at:smile.amazon.com Select Prairie Creek Community School to receive .5% of your eligible purchases as a donation.
>Log into your Amazon account and select your charity. Amazon will save the choice in your Settings, so you don’t need to think about it again. You’ll also be reassured each time you log in, as you will see “Amazon Smile: Supporting Prairie Creek Community School on the top left of the page, right above your name.
>Bookmark smile.amazon.comOR better yet, link to AmazonSmile through iGive to earn even more!
3.Collect BOX TOPS from items you already buy!
Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, attach them to the Box Tops collection form (coming home soon in your child’s BPE) and send them to school. Just think, if each PCCS family sends in two completed collection forms this year we would earn almost $700!
4.Shop at MightyNest.com
MightyNest’s dual mission is to help families create healthy homes AND raise money for each customer's school. Every product they sell, including reusable lunch gear, body care, cleaning supplies, kitchenwares and more, was handpicked to help families live healthy lives AND 15% of every purchase is donated to the school you choose.
