Oh hey, I am just grabbing my Amazon packages
and I thought of something I want to say to you.
Did you think I bought everything at The Shops at The Caring Place and Second Helping? I
mean I guess I can see how you could think that. Everything I have on today is from The
Shops at The Caring Place. I love saying “I got it at The Caring Place” when someone
likes my outfit! And, I even have several pieces of art and furniture inside from Second
Helping. I like nice things at a great price! Don’t
you? Plus I know I am shopping for good. Because
of The Caring Place’s two thrift stores, when you give a monetary donation to The Caring
Place, 100% of that donation directly impacts our neighbors in need. Not a lot of nonprofits
can say that! But back to my Amazon packages. Like lot of
Families, we enjoy the ease of shopping online for anything from office supplies, to birthday
and Christmas gifts, to gadgets, and yes even groceries! Like coffee! But, don’t worry
I am still Shopping for Good! And, you can too! When you need to make an Amazon purchase,
type smile.amazon.com in your web browser. It’s the same shopping cart and login you
use on Amazon, but on this website you pick your favorite non-profit and Amazon donates
½ a percent of your purchase to the non profit. And of course, you’ll select The Caring
Place in Georgetown Texas. After you do it once, Amazon Smile remembers your selection,
just be sure to use the smile.amazon.com site to make the purchases in the future. It’s
pretty simple. And, believe me, Amazon is pretty popular, so it will add up! You know
you were going t go shopping there anyway so now you can be shopping for good.
If you’re all about lifting up the people in your community, give shopping for good
a try. And, if you want to learn more about what The Caring Place is doing in your own
backyard, you can find them on Facebook, Instagram, Linked In and www.caringplacetx.org.
Ok, I’ll let you go now. I’m going to drink my coffee. And, you have some shopping
for good to do!
