Have you heard about Give Back? In 2010, Stephen Paletta began the Give Back Foundation. He started it to give everyone a chance to make a difference, to give us all a chance to give back.
If you're like me, (and I know I am) money is tight. Because I don't have money to give, I look for other ways to make an impact in my community. The Give Back Foundation allows each of us to set up our own accounts and select our own charities to benefit. Each member can allocate their funds however they choose. It can be a single donation or as part of a group of people coming together to support a cause. The Give Back Foundation charges nothing for facilitating this. All monies allocated to the charity goes to the charity. Any money you add personally is tax deductible.
So? How does it work? Visit http://www.giveback.org/ and set up your own foundation. You can select any charity recognized by and in good standing with the IRS. Then, you can earn up to 15% of your purchases for the charity of your choice by shopping at the over 400 Give Back Foundation affiliated retailers. Next, spread the word! Join forces with others and help the awareness for your foundation grow!
You decide where the money goes and when! Giving back has never been easier!
