We hope our community supported local retailers by shopping SMALL this past holiday weekend, and continue to make local purchasing choices as much as possible! Our retailers support organizations like GOTR with donations and supplies when we need it most! If you do how ever plan to participate in Cyber Monday shopping, or have that special something that you need to get to special someone accross the country, we wanted to make you aware of away you can do this and still positively affect local organization and local people!
When you sign up through Social Good Network you can shop dozens of online shops such as Target, GAP, Orbitz, Nordstrom, Best Buy, itunes, and many more. At no additional costs and at rates you'd find by first shopping directly with these companies, you'll earn credits that you can then donate to the cause of your choice. Check out the step by step process below.
Also, one large online retailer Amazon.com, also provides give back dollars to organizations such as Girls on the Run. They will donate directly .5 % of all purchases to GOTR. To do this, you can go directly to their AmazonSmile website. We have also created a wish list of items that we use season to season in our program delivery that you can purchase directly for us.
What is Social Good Network?
Social Good Network (SGN) makes charitable giving simple, social and sustainable. You raise money for nonprofits by shopping through the SGN website, email links and mobile applications. Members spread the word, and the goodness, giving in both new and traditional ways.
How It Works
Retail partners reward Social Good Network for purchases from the SGN website, email links and mobile site. When you make an eligible purchase, you earn money to donate directly to your favorite causes. Shopping on Social Good Network doesn't cost you any more than purchasing items directly from the retailer, but the money earned makes a difference for the nonprofits you give to.
Every quarter, Social Good Network tallies up the proceeds and send checks to the organizations like Girls on the Run Idaho that member shopping and donations support. Amazon purchases may not be individually tracked so proceeds from these purchases are directed to the Community Pot.
Step 1: Go to www.socialgoodnetwork.com and click the "Join Us" button. Enter your name, email address, and create a password. When you're logged in as a member, you can access your account information from your dashboard, at the top of the page. This shows how much money you've earned to direct to projects, and keeps track of your favorite nonprofits and retailers.
Step 2: Access retailers through the links on our Shop for Good pages. These links take you directly to the retailer's website. Make your purchase.
Step 3: Credits for eligible purchases are added to your Social Good Network account, typically within 48-72 hours. Search for Girls on the Run Idaho Treasure Valley under "Support Nonprofits" and then direct your donations to us by clicking "Give for Good" on our organization's page. Girls on the Run Idaho Treasure Valley also accepts secure direct donations.
Step 4: Sit Back and Relax - you have done a good deed for the day.
