CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Online shopping and fundraising site Shopping.Gives has launched their “Five Days of Giving” 2017 Holiday Fundraising Campaign to benefit many of the nation’s leading nonprofit organizations, including Holiday Heroes, Lumity, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, Project Hope, and Susan G Komen, Wisconsin. The Five Days of Giving campaign, which launches on Black Friday and runs through Giving Tuesday, is a special fundraising effort, providing consumers with the opportunity to do their holiday shopping while raising money for organizations dedicated to serving communities in need.
The Five Days of Giving campaign is powered by Shopping.Gives, an online platform that turns shopping into fundraising by quickly and easily allowing organizations to create a campaign and share it with their supporters. By visiting organizations through the Shopping.Gives homepage, https://shopping.gives, shoppers can purchase their holiday gifts from more than 750 top retailers with up to 40 percent of the purchase price going directly to participating nonprofit organizations. Shoppers can browse the featured gift guides, save money with coupon codes and deals at Shopping.Gives or use the platform to donate directly to the nonprofit of their choice.
“During the holidays, many of us have an increased desire to help those in need. Our generous supporters purchase gifts, toys, and craft supplies to donate to the children patients that Holiday Heroes serves,” said Bridgette Ferraro, Holiday Heroes Executive Director. “We also know that it can be difficult for many people to give back during the holidays as there are often already additional expenses. With Shopping.Gives, we give new supporters the ability to give back through the shopping they were already doing and to support pediatric patients at the same time. This is a big step towards helping these kids have their own amazing holiday.”
To help organizations raise even more, and in honor of #GivingTuesday, Shopping.Gives has partnered with popular stores to offer increased cash back amounts every time supporters shop on Cyber Monday and #GivingTuesday. These retailers include Nordstrom, Dell, Moosejaw, Clark’s, SnapFish, Acer, and Topman among many others.
“The organizations benefiting from our Five Days of Giving campaign are doing their part each and every day to make the world and their communities a better place and we’re proud to support their invaluable work this holiday season,” said Shopping.Gives CEO Ronny Sage. “Please consider participating in our Five Days of Giving campaign by shopping, saving and giving back to these amazing organizations with every purchase.”
Shopping.Gives helps organizations raise money in a new way: by turning everyday purchases into fundraising. Users can quickly create and promote a fundraiser with the easy-to-use platform, and supporters can shop from over 750 popular stores, giving up to 40% back to the organization from every purchase.
