If 826LA can raise $10,000 this month, the All Ways Up foundation will match it dollar for dollar. Go here to help us unlock this challenge grant and double the impact of your donation!
But wait, there’s more! Here are five easy and affordable ways to show your love for 826LA.
1. Shop Amazon through 826LA’s AmazonSmile* site (details below).
2. Shop at Ralphs and link your Ralphs Rewards Card to Community Rewards for 826LA specifically. Learn more about Ralphs’s Community Contribution program here, and find instructions to enroll your Ralphs rewards card here.
3. Double the impact of your donation by seeing if your company participates in a corporate match giving program. Find a list of Corporate Match Giving Programs in California here.
4. Download the RoundUp app and automatically give your “spare change” to 826LA! Once you select us as your nonprofit of choice, the next time you buy, say, a “My Other Car is a Wooly Mammoth” bumper sticker for $2.49, the remaining 51 cents will go to 826LA.
5. Use the Time Travel Mart Tri-Dimensional Gift Guide to shop for your friends, family, and fellow time travelers, of course. Shop year-round and through the centuries at the 826LA Time Travel Mart online and at our Echo Park and Mar Vista storefront locations.
*Shop for good by supporting 826LA’s educational programs through AmazonSmile! Register 826LA as your preferred organization on AmazonSmile, and Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchase to 826LA every time you shop. Here’s how:
1. Select 826LA: Log onto AmazonSmile using your existing Amazon account, and search for 826LA in the welcome screen. You only have to select 826LA once, and the system will remember your choice.
2. Save: Bookmark AmazonSmile and start your shopping from there every time. Here’s the key — 826LA only benefits from your purchase if you’re shopping through an smile.amazon.com web address, rather than an amazon.com address. But don’t worry if you forget to begin your shopping spree at AmazonSmile. Navigate to AmazonSmile at any point before check-out, and all of the items will remain in your cart!
3. Share: Spread the word with friends and family! Once you register, AmazonSmile will give you the option to share via Facebook and Twitter so others can support 826LA, too.
That’s it! Once you choose 826LA, don’t forget to save the link for later and share it with everyone you know. Thank you for supporting 826LA!
