It's that time of year -- outfitting the kids for back to school. That used to mean trips to the mall, but these days, a good bit of the shopping is done online through Amazon and other digital retailers.
If that's how you shop, please consider using the Amazon Smile program and naming the XLH Network as the beneficiary. It's easy, it'll make you feel good to know that you're contributing to our important work, and, perhaps best of all -- it doesn't cost you anything.
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.
Thanks for your support!
