Or, you can do some shopping!
all those who love to shop online, we have good news! An opportunity has
emerged that enables you to shop (virtually) guilt free! The Frankfort
Community Public Library recently became a participant in an internet program
called iGive. This program is wonderful because whenever a patron shops
online, a percentage of their purchases goes towards the library. For example,
let’s say I have been eyeing a nice jacket from L.L Bean. Instead of just
going straight to their website, I instead go to iGive.com.. There, they kind
of “tag” you as being a member of iGive and that part of your purchases go
towards a non- profit group. After you have been “tagged” you can proceed
to go to the L.L. Bean website. Then, you can buy that great jacket and feel
good knowing that not only did you treat yourself, but you also helped out
are over 400 online vendors who participate in the iGive.com program, many of
whom you probably already shop from. Here, I have included a short list of
some of them:
Barnes and Noble
assured, your shopping is safe and secure. In addition, iGive’s
or other information to a third party unless they are required by law. (Under
a subpoena or court order) For
detailed information on how to participate, please see below:
- Sign up as a new member by clicking on the iGive banner.
- The next step is to enter in your information. Here, you get a chance to
select if you would like to
take a tax deduction or if you would like to donate anonymously.
- After you have filled out the relevant information, iGive will prompt you to
download a program that is essentially a window that keeps track of your
purchases. IGive needs to report to the vendors which sales have portions
taken out. This window is the way that iGive keeps track so it is important
that you download it.
- Once you have become a member of iGive, you can shop either through their mall
or through your window. Both ways, the Frankfort Public Library will receive a
percentage of your purchases.
