Oh, the season of giving. Sometimes it seems to feel like the season of spending though, doesn’t it? Well what if you could somehow meet in the middle?
Have you heard of Amazon Smile?
Well you’ve definitely heard of Amazon, the online superstore. Amazon Smile is the same thing, with a charitable twist. Each purchase made donates a percentage back to a specific organization. And guess what? You can donate that percentage to The Call KC!
And it’s super easy, too. When you’ve got itch to do some Cyber Monday (or any other day for that matter) shopping, just follow this link and have at it!
So there’s Black Friday, and then Cyber Monday and then…
#GIVINGTUESDAY! If you follow us on social media you’ve seen our #GivingTuesday announcement quite a bit lately. That’s because we’re counting down the days until November 29.
#GivingTuesday is a worldwide day of giving more, giving smarter and giving greater. We’re encouraging the Kansas City community to rally together to make huge change this year. All of the money we are able to raise will go directly to our youth education programs.
Through these programs, we are able to teach kids and young adults about relevant issues in their community – such as homelessness, domestic violence and environmental problems. After they learn about these issues, they become active members of society by volunteering their time and energy with a related non-profit organization. We are firm believers that by introducing volunteering at a young age, it can become a way of life.
By investing in youth, it’s possible to change the dynamic of a city, and that’s what we plan to do.
