Did you know that there are a number of ways to give to the XLH Network, Inc. without actually writing a check? Obviously we hope you will consider donating throughout the year, and, of course, you can give appreciated stocks or work with your employer to ensure matching gifts to the Network. But there are also a number of ways that your online experiences can benefit the Network without costing you anything.
The XLH Network is one of the many charitable organizations registered with the Amazon Smile program. If you are an online shopper with Amazon, you can set up your account so that Amazon gifts .5% of your purchases to the Network! We don't know about you all, but the ease of online shopping has changed our lives for the better. Amazon Smile allows you to make purchases you were going to make anyway and a small portion of the amount you spend will go to the XLH Network.
To shop using Amazon Smile, simply go to smile.amazon.com. On your first visit to the site, you will need to select the XLH Network as the charitable organization of your choice before you begin shopping. The site will remember your choice, and every time you shop with Amazon you will benefit our organization and the work we are doing on behalf of families with XLH. If you are already an Amazon shopper, we hope you will consider selecting the XLH Network as your charity of choice and use Amazon Smile.
Another option is to shop using iGive. When you set up an account with iGive and go through their portal to shop at more than 1,700 online stores, a portion of your purchases will be donated to the XLH Network. It is quick and easy, and, once again, you are simply making the same purchases you would make otherwise, but you are benefitting the Network at the same time! You can set up an iGive account here: http://www.igive.com/welcome/lp15/wr34.cfm?c=32912. Just remember to choose the XLH Network as your chosen organization.
And, of course, if you have an idea for fundraisers in your local community, we hope you will contact us so that we can assist you in any way we can. Thank you for your continued generosity to the Network and for considering some of these quick and easy ways you might contribute to our cause!
