It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back and paying it forward. I know everyone shops, so today I am going to encourage you to shop smarter. Many companies are now giving back and it often impacts right down to where you choose.
For example, Amazon now has Amazon Smile. A percentage of your order goes back to a non-profit of your choice. It’s the same shopping experience but with a bigger smile.
Many of our crafters are involved with giving back by serving on non-profit boards or volunteering. Here are just a few:
- Boys & Girls Club of Yucca Valley
- Yucca Valley Music Boosters
- Theatre 29
- Hi Desert Cultural Center
- Tuba Christmas
- All Things Kabuki
- Morongo Basin Humane Society
- Twentynine Palms Rotary
- Copper Mountain College Foundation
- 29 Palms Food Pantry
So if you haven’t chosen a non-profit to give to when shopping on Amazon you have some choices. With a little bit of effort we can make those dollars stretch just a bit further.
With inky fingers,
