iGive - Support Advent when you Shop on-line
The iGive button makes it simple. It's completely free and easy to be socially-conscious! There are over 1,200 participants including most on-line retailers like Amazon and nearly every other major retailer that sells via the Internet. Many airlines, Amtrak, cell phone companies and well known travel sites, such as Expedia, also participate. In fact, many even offer special coupons only available through iGive that give you a better deal than you could receive elsewhere. To sign up, here is the link:
Please add it to your computer(s) and it will be totally automatic whenever you shop on-line with a participating retailer. You don't even have to remember to do anything. Contributions range from a about .5% to 26%. But even a small percentage on a large purchase, like airline tickets, can really add up! Please e-mail Pastor Chris at if you choose to participate, or if you have questions.
If you make your first on-line purchase within 45 days of signing up, Advent will receive an extra $5.
You can also use iGive as your search engine and Advent will receive 1 penny for every search you do!  "Simply click "web" after you reach the iGive site."
