Shopping Frenzy

By now, you and everyone else online, has been buried in shopping promotions. Here are my personal tips, as someone who’s been part of Clean Water Action for more than 30 years:JonMeme

  1. Shop smarter, greener. Whenever possible, I try to buy local, from people and businesses in my community. I rely on Fair Trade and Organic certification to help make sure my purchases are better for people and the planet. Or, and this is a radical idea, I don't buy anything at all.
  2. Make your online purchases count. Our partners at We-Care.com have a great app that works automatically with your internet browser to generate micro-donations that really add up for Clean Water Action (at no cost to you). With hundreds of thousands of users, those donations really add up. Join them by following these easy steps.
  3. Sign up and help us win. A new sweepstakes from We-Care.com offers you the chance to win a $500 travel voucher to fly anywhere this holiday season and other great prizes including big cash $$. If you win Clean Water Action wins a donation too. Enter here, and get additional chances to win with the online shopping app and by sharing with friends.
  4. Shortcut to savings. We-Care.com has curated a great collection of Black Friday and CyberMonday savings. This link takes you direct to online Black Friday deals where your purchases benefit Clean Water Action. Cyber Monday deals for online purchases via this link (which goes live on Monday) will also benefit Clean Water Action. If you’re going to be buying online anyway, why not do it to help our great cause.

Remember, the choices you make about what, when, where, how and whether to buy something at all can have great impact for good. We know you will choose wisely.
