Announcing our first online fundraising option for our Chinese school ...
Starting today, whenever you shop online using iGive.com, up to 26% of your purchase at over 1,100 great stores will be automatically donated to Hayward MERC Chinese School - a subdivision of "Multicultural Education Research Center."
Aside from the contribution/donation, you will be able to access a discount shopping database under "Deals & Coupons" tab once you're in your iGive account. The screenshot below demonstrates how I could use iGive to save money. In the example, I did a search on "notebook computer", and I got a long list of current promotions that I can take advantage of to save up to $167 off a i3 Lenovo notebook online purchase using iGive.
For example, iff I decided to make the online purchase above, our school will get 2% of this $412 computer purchase, and that's about $8 to help out achieving MERC's mission.
To participating in fundraising, just designate MERC as your cause of contribution by following the following 2 steps. Once signed up, you can always come back to iGive.com to sign in your iGive account, and start finding discounts and shop online from there. Here's how:
