Soroptimist International of Long Beach – Investing in Dreams

Did you know that you could buy shampoo, dog food, shoes, groceries, pond clarifier, photo tools, grandkids tennis shoes….just about anything you can think of! AND if you are a Prime Member ($90/yr) you get free 2 day shipping and access to free movies and 10,000+ songs for your IPod or (apple/droid)phone! OK enough of the sales pitch. Like all stores you have to shop your prices. But did you know …that you could have a portion of Amazon’s profit go to SILB??? So up to this point, I have been directing mine to Mabel Paine Elementary, the school my grandchildren attend. I have not been extra careful about making sure I select the site AMAZON SMILE as opposed to AMAZON (which you don’t get a contribution to the charity of your choice). In the sloppy fashion I have shopped $16.39 has gone to the kids school from 49 orders. So if everyone did this (and you can simply spend 1 minute and change it from Charity choice 1 to SILB anytime) and shopped like I have and we received $16.39 +/-, we would have over $600 in passive donations. I have attached my change to SILB so that you can see where to click (see below, click on link) and let’s see how much we can save on gas from going to the store and see our little stock pile of 0.5% go to SILB!!!! Think about the holidays ladies….they have amazing specials and last year I did most of my shopping from the living room. No bags to carry, no carts to push, no people to shove. Let’s all get together and make sure our charity is SILB!!

As Jaye would say…thanks for listening …
