Hey! It’s Christmas! It’s Cyber-Week! The Armed Services Mutual Benefit Association (ASMBA) STAR Foundation would like to remind everyone that we have joined a growing list of charities benefiting from the generosity of iGive members through online shopping. That’s right, you heard me…online shopping! What are you waiting for?
The ASMBA STAR Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c) (3) military charity. Our core purpose is:
To provide financial support aimed at improving the “quality of life” of our disabled veterans, assisting veterans and their families, and the military community by attempting to fill those needs unmet by the U. S. Government.
So how does iGive work? When iGive members make purchases at over 920 participating stores (ex: Amazon, Ann Taylor, Best Buy, Chadwick’s, etc.), iGive members can generate funds for the ASMBA STAR Foundation. There are no costs, no obligations, nor any hidden fees. So go ahead, visit the complete list of participating stores at http://www.igive.com/ to find your favorite store and turn shopping online into a charitable donation to the ASMBA STAR Foundation…
iGive is a free service to causes and members
Here’s how it works! When iGive members shop via iGive’s special links (starting at the iGive.com web site, the iGive Newsletter, or having installed the iGive Toolbar "Donation Enabled"), tracking enables iGive to identify the purchases of each individual iGive member with an ID number. Here’s what you need to do to join! Just go to: http://lev.igive.com/html/allcauses-59413.cfm. How cool is that!
Causes always receive 100% of the donation amount which is advertised on the iGive web site at http://www.igive.com/ (iGive.com receives fees separately from the amounts that go to the cause)…Are you with me?
You shop the same way as you would without starting at iGive. When you do start with iGive, participating stores automatically send iGive the needed iGive information only (no credit card numbers or personal information that would be considered sensitive), so that iGive can track the donation to each member's designated cause. Still with me? When you successfully link to an iGive store, your visit will be immediately visible in the You recently visited box.
Okay, if you like searching the web, raising money for the ASMBA STAR Foundation couldn’t be easier every time you search iGive’s Web tab! When you use the iGive search engine for internet searching, the ASMBA STAR Foundation receives $0.01 (or more) per qualified search. The money comes from advertisers, so it costs you nothing, and it's completely free for you and the ASMBA STAR Foundation…I like it!
Also, check this out iGive will donate an extra $5 for each new supporter that makes their first purchase within 45 days of joining iGive by going online at: http://www.igive.com/html/tellafriend.cfm.
So after you sign up, please tell a friend! And, if you’re a veteran or you are presently serving…Thank you for your service! If you have a family member or friend who is presently serving or who has served please thank them for their service!
Please visit us online at www.asmbastar.com and see how we’re “building bridges”…”filling gaps”…”changing lives”…and “making an impact” in the military community!
Thank you in advance for your support… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
