Shop to your heart’s content while supporting Little City

By shopping through iGive.com and making Little City your charity of choice, the merchants you shop online at this holiday season and throughout the year will donate a percentage of the sale to us. It all adds up, with donation percentages ranging from 1.6% at online stores like Bloomingdales and Walmart, to 5.2% at Chicago Steak Co. and 8% at 1-800-Flowers. Subscriptions to magazines and newspapers also count with the Wall Street Journal contributing 14%, Magazines.com 8% and USA Today 6.4%.

It’s as easy as entering your email address at http://www.iGive.com and following a few simple steps. Over 1,700 stores participate, including the Apple Store, Expedia, QVC, Amazon.com, Staples.com, JCPenney, PETCO, & Pottery Barn.

After you’ve signed up, for shopping at most participating online stores, there’s nothing to do. Simply look for the iGive Button in the bottom right corner of the store you shop at and the merchant will provide a donation according to your purchase amount.

To shop on Amazon and have your purchase count for Little City, just go to Google, Yahoo, or Bing and search for “Amazon.” When you see the iGive dandelion seed icon next to the search result, click it to change your shopping for good and get credit. Or, use this link: http://www.igive.com/amazon.

“Little City uses an affirming message – that it’s a good world, there’s a place for my kids in the world and Little City will help them find it.”
