I bought my in-laws some cooking related stuff at cooking.com through igive.  Really cool stuff too!  It's nice to buy and do something right, at the same time.

Here's more on the iGive shopping wondow.  I tried it out by buying a bathing suit at Land's End LOL

With the iGive.com Shopping Window, you're ensuring that up to 26% (and sometimes more) of every purchase you make through a store in the
iGive.com Mall helps Cushing's Help and Support!

HERE'S HOW YOUR iGIVE.COM SHOPPING WINDOW HELPS YOUR FAVORITE CAUSE:

++ Just shop as you normally do-- by going directly to your favorite store's Web site.  For example: Type http://www.LandsEnd.com in your Web browser.

(The Shopping Window will *not* be activated if you click a link in an e-mail, or if the last site you visited is iGive.com.)

++ If the store you visit is part of iGive's Mall of 410+ stores, your Shopping Window will appear to make sure your purchase counts for a donation!  No need to
remember which stores are part of iGive.com!

++ If you see the iGive.com Shopping Window, up to 26% of your purchase at that store is automatically donated to your designated cause!

Remember, if you don't see the iGive.com Shopping Window when you visit an online store, it's not one of the 410+ stores in the iGive.com Mall that help your cause with every purchase.  If you don't see the Shopping Window, the purchase doesn't count for a donation.

Start Shopping! For a complete A-Z list of all 410+ stores in the iGive.com Network, just visit: http://www.iGive.com...erchantlist.cfm


A FEW HANDY LINKS TO HELP YOU GET STARTED

++ Check out the current Specials Coupons & Offers at the Mall! http://www.iGive.com/html/specials.cfm

++ Get FREE SHIPPING at some of your favorite stores! Visit: http://www.iGive.com...reeShipping.cfm

++ Read iGive.com's weekly Newsletter, filled with new coupons, free shipping, Double Donation Days, & more!
Read the newest issue online at: http://www.iGive.com...l/iGiveNews.cfm

Happy shopping, and best wishes to you and your worthy cause!

Oh Gee, I didn't know that about Amazon.  I had a problem with getting credit from them right from my first order so I switched to Barnes and Noble.  If I'm going to shop on line and I have a choice of stores with similiar or same products, you better believe I'll go with the ones who participate.  

As far as ebay goes....  I don't care if it's tax deductible or not.  I shop there and if we get pennies - we get pennies.  All pennies make dollars.  The tax deductible part is non important to me.

Oh, and Mary, the donations....  I printed all the information for us to set up CUSH as a non-profit on ebay, but we never got any further with it.  That's what I meant.  You have to remember...  I've been ill and dopey (no comments, please) with pain meds...  two thoughts together correctly are still not in my head.

I've posted here before about iGive.com and several people have used this wonderful site to buy things online.  

This website allows people to shop at the same stores that you normally would and at the same prices.  However, with a special agreement, they contribute some of the profits to the upkeep and monthly charges of running this site and message board.

People from these boards have earned $95.64 since this program started in November and I thank everyone who has done this. :)

There's a special going on for this month and next...It's called The New Member bonus.  

From March 1 through April 30 2002, each new member who joins iGive and shops will earn an additional $5 to help pay for these boards and the Cushing's Help site.

That's on top of the standard of up to 26% from shopping. Only hitch - you've got to shop within 45 days of joining.  Joining is free.

With over 340 stores now at iGive.com, they've got some great choices.

Cushing's Help and Support has only 44 days left for $5 Donation Match

 

iGive has extended its offer of a FREE $5 bonus for each new shopper until June 30, 2002!  
Time is running short.  Unless you spread the word Cushing's Help and Support will miss out.

==============================
Contents
------------------------------
1. $5 Bonus Information
2. Don't get left behind
3. It Adds Up Quickly
4. Hundreds of Great Deals
5. Tracking & Registration are so easy
6. Supporters get started with just one click
7. Cause Statistics


=========================================
1. FREE $5 + up to 26% of each purchase!
-----------------------------------------

Each new person who registers at iGive.com between now and June 30 can raise an additional $5 for your cause, on top of earning up to 26% of each purchase for you!

All they have to do is shop via iGive.com within 45 days of joining.  We make it easy, with over 360 familiar stores (like Amazon, Lands' End, PetFood Direct, Office Depot, and Best Buy) to choose from!

The average online shopper is earning about $20-$40 per year for their chosen cause.  Some shoppers are
raising that for their cause each month!  Make sure that cause is Cushing's Help and Support.


===============================================
2. It's working for thousands of causes
-----------------------------------------------

The average check we wrote last month was for about $75.  You can see a list of recent checks we've sent
at http://www.iGive.com/html/payments.cfm


========================================
3. Benefits come quickly
----------------------------------------

Just five new shoppers can mean another $150, $200, even $500 or more in the coming year.  Better yet, it continues year in and year out, without any more work on your part.  


=================================
4. Hundreds of Great Deals!
---------------------------------

As always, your supporters get great deals, never pay more, and might even pay less when they shop for things they need from stores they know and trust.  Books, records, office supplies, clothes, pet supplies, and gifts are just some of the things people are buying every day.  Why shouldn't each purchase also help Cushing's Help and Support?

Even simply bidding at eBay can help your organization, when your supporters are members of iGive.com.

It really is simple.  All your supporters have to do to register is click on your special link.  Free for them, free for you.  But they'll only know about it if you spread the word!


============================================
5. Tracking & Registration is Automatic
--------------------------------------------

Whenever members shop by starting at iGive.com, our newsletter, or by using the iGive.com Shopping Window,
they'll automatically be earning money for Cushing's Help and Support.

Each month, we send out checks to qualifying causes.

==========================================
6. Get Started Today with this simple link
------------------------------------------

Each day that goes by means lost opportunity - wasted money.  Don't let that happen.

Simply by letting your supporters and friends know that they can help, without it costing anything you'll
be helping Cushing's Help and Support.

Your supporters can join just by clicking on this link: http://www.iGive.com/html/refer.cfm?causeid=17825

Send it to them today. The $5 bonus expires June 30, 2002.

Funny you should post in this topic today, Mary.  Last night I felt like shopping and I had to join IGive all over again.  I suddenly wasn't a member anymore.  It's only been three months since I shopped so I couldn't figure why I disappeared.  Just like this support board.  Here one day and gone the next.  G  O  L  L  Y!   So when I do find something to buy you'll get another $5.00 for my joining - again!

:B:  hehe.gif  :P  :cool:  :eh:  :)  :look:

Was shopping at iGive the other night.  Bought Don a heated mattress pad.  Oh boy!  I don't need this, but with dual control he can keep warm and I don't have to roast.  Wanted the new $30 socks for Don at Bath and Body Works but they don't have them on-line.   :con:   Chemo really dried out and hurt his feet.  I'll keep checking back until it gets too close to Christmas.  If they don't have them, then I'll have to really go to a store!  Yikes!!

Oh, well...  Christmas is coming so I'll be shopping at iGive some more real soon.

Been shopping again!  This morning before I left for work I visited Expedia at iGive and purchased our package for Vegas.  I'd checked several sites for flights and hotels and the ones at iGive offered the same exact deals.  

Last night when I was talking to Jerr he told me he'd purchased new computers for his business and bought them through iGive also.

Thanks to all who shop at iGive and help to support these boards!

Help, Mary!

I tried to purchase the new book on Cushings that was in the e-mail newsletter and it wouldn't let me.  Says I don't have any cookies.  So, okay, what did I do now?  Or, what do I do now?  I went to settings and checked my internet properties and read how to fix my cookies and I tried, but I still can't shop.  Doesn't make sense, especially when the top of the pages at the mall says, "HI, Sue"  

I haven't reset anything to begin with, so I don't know what happened.

Phooey.  I can't shop...

Sue

Ebay does?  I didn't know that.  I'm bidding on something right now and it looks like I'm winning.  I had the shopping window on my last computer, but I thought that I knew it all.

Thanks, Sue.  I'll get the shopping window again before that auction is over.
