|BLACK FRIDAY sales are already underway, and the holiday season is nearly here. Did you know that you can support Westosha Lakes Chorus easily while you shop?
Here are two simple ways to benefit the chorus, as you do your regular holiday and everyday shopping.
1) SHOP WITH SCRIP -- Gift card fundraising is an easy way for the chorus to raise money. Simply sign up for SHOP WITH SCRIP online (choosing Westosha Lakes Chorus as the non-profit beneficiary, and buy your favorite gift cards from your favorite merchants, restaurants, travel providers, gasoline companies, grocery stores, and other vendors.
Choose e-gift cards or physical cards. Pay online with a credit card or bank transfer, and enjoy home delivery for a small S/H fee. Or contact a chorus member to pay by check and arrange pickup of a physical gift card. The chorus will automatically receive a small percentage of your gift card purchases -- at no extra cost to you!
This program runs all year round. The chorus typically collects for monthly Shop with Scrip gift card orders on the first Thursday of each month, when we meet for rehearsals. (If we ZOOM, we collect by mail or special arrangements.) If you pay for your order by check, rather than bank transfer or credit card), it may be handy to send that sum in when you pay your chorus dues.
HINT: Gift cards make super holiday gifts!
2) Amazon Smile -- This program is also simple and convenient to do. Shopping on Amazon? Access the website via this Amazon Smile web-link. Select Westosha Lakes Chorus Chapter of Sweet Adelines International as your current charity. With no added cost to you, the chorus will receive a donation from Amazon Smile and totaling a small percentage of your total purchases. (This program runs year-round -- not just on Black Friday.)
3) Choose the best of both worlds! Buy an Amazon gift card through Shop with Scrip. Then go to Amazon online with the Amazon Smile link. Pick your items, and place your Amazon order, just as your normally would. Use your gift card to pay. The chorus benefits twice!
Thank you for supporting Westosha Lakes Chorus!
