Giving Without Writing A Check

Posted on: November 16th, 2011 by Jessie Domingo Salu No Comments

Our country’s economic hardship has made it difficult for individuals to dig into their pockets to give to new causes. Some can’t even continue to donate at the level they did 5 years ago. THANKFULLY innovative opportunities have been created for the public to give to causes (e.g. airline miles, stocks, mutual funds, etc). Shopkick is one opportunity that enables individuals to donate actual dollars without dipping into their bank account(s) or paycheck. All a person has to do is download the Shopkick app on their iPhone, iPad or Android and start collecting kicks (points), then donate the kicks to a Shopkick “Cause.” The kicks translate into dollars for an organization’s “Cause.” Based on the number of kicks a “Cause” receives, Shopkick cuts a check to the organization.

Fortunately, The National Crittenton Foundation has been selected to be a Shopkick “Cause.” Crittenton’s first Shopkick check was received last month.  We are so thankful to Shopkick as well as the individuals who donated kicks to our cause. Start giving or continue to give to The National Crittenton Foundation “Help Girls Heal” cause through Shopkick. We greatly appreciate it!
