In Our Causes Own Words
Thank you, thank you… thank YOU! Thanks to donors like you, Columbus BBYO has raised $103.15 so far through this amazingly simple, no cost to you, donation platform,! AMAZING!!

Don’t forget to utilize the iGive donation options when doing your holiday shopping this year. Together, we can work to raise even more money simply by shopping at iGive’s partner sites and clicking the iGive button to confirm your donation to Columbus BBYO. If you are anything like me… the simplicity of having all of my holiday gifts delivered is a HUGE benefit during this busy time of year… so most of my gifts come from online stores, and almost all them are iGive partners!

The iGive Button does it all for me! I have the iGive button on all of my browsers so I don’t have to “think” about it… it just tells me if I am on a partner site and asks me to confirm that I want to give. If you don’t already have the button (the little dandelion seed next to your browser), please consider downloading this option. It makes donating even easier so you never miss an opportunity. Get it here:

Another great way to give back: tell friends to use iGive to help Columbus BBYO via Facebook, Twitter, or go “old school” and just send them an email. Go to iGive’s tell-a-friend page to make it easy:

Together we can raise money for Columbus BBYO without spending anything we wouldn’t already be spending. And isn’t that a gift in itself? It sure makes shopping more bearable to know that the store is giving part of my purchase back to help our cause.
