I want to wish all of my readers a safe, healthy, and above all, happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.
I wanted to remind you about a great way to show your thanks to the charities and non-profits that make a difference in the lives of those who benefit most from them. Even better, all you have to do is shop to be able to give!
Simply log onto Amazon through its Smile program at smile.amazon.com, and select the charitable organization or non-profit of your choice. A small portion of your purchase total will go to the charity or organization you choose. It’s easy, and charity does, in fact, begin at home when you log on through Smile. Give thanks to the great organizations and people doing amazing work for others. The best part about Smile is that you can keep the giving going all year round, simply by making purchases on a site you already love. I donate to Smile, and my organization of choice is the one I work for, The Arc of Atlantic County, located in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. My purchases donate a small amount back to help fund programs and services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
And when you shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, be sure to use the social media hashtag #StartWithASmile.
Again, have a safe, healthy, and Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season!
