3. Start discovering and backing projects that make your heart beat faster.  You know the ones. I’m backing a project that my amazing friend Tsh from Simple Mom is funding through her blog network.

It’s called the Child Survival Program in Ethiopia through Compassion.  {You all know how much my heart loves Compassion.} This will provide impoverished mothers medical help for their children,  food, opportunities to learn about Jesus, and educates them on how to provide and care for their babies.

{It may take a little while for your funds to show up from your purchases.  Patience, Grasshoppers. The credit card fairies have to clear your numbers.}

4. SHARE!  Invite Your Friends, Share This Post, Shout it on Facebook, Pin It, Tell Your Small Group.  Friends, your money is already being given to charities each time you spend, why not GIVE to things that YOU have a passion for!  You don’t have to spend any additional money – it’s like FREE GIVING! The more we band together, the bigger our impact!

Got it?  Questions?  You in the back with the cute striped cardigan… Just holler if I can help!

Just think…when you go to finish your Christmas shopping, or refill your paper towel stockpile, or purchase a birthday gift, or book tickets for your next vacation, you will be IMPACTING LIVES and CHANGING the WORLD!

I’m giddy that you’re jumping on board!

* I’ll choose the winner on Wednesday {December 19th} randomly and contact them through email. I will verify that the winner has signed up for a Pure Charity account and then mail them the iPad Mini directly!

    This is so fun! I just signed up and I will be Supporting Impact Africa’s Baby Rescue Center in South Africa. I’ve actually been on 2 short term mission trips to South Africa and worked with Impact Africa both times–they are doing amazing work and the Baby Rescue center will bring life to many babies who would normally be aborted or left to die in porta-potties, dumpsters, trash piles… It is exciting!!

  2. 4thFrog says:

    Laundry is a neverending reality in my life. Sometimes I get frustrated at the constant stream. I don’t often think about how lucky I am that I can take a few steps to the laundry room and toss in a load. That’s why I’ll be supporting the Fayettville Laundry Love Project.

  3. Chrissy says:

    I signed up NAND can not wait to support water is life in Ghana .. My friend is adopting from their soon and I would love or help

  4. Kari Hickey says:

    Just signed up and will be supporting Winter warmth for women! This is a fantastic program. I wish I had known about it before doing all my Christmas shopping.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    I recently signed up for an account with Pure Charity, and right now I’m most interested in supporting Seeds of Hope Rehabilitation, an organization that helps kids in Afghanistan.

  6. MollyH says:

    I just signed up! I want to support the WaterisLife Filters for school kids in Ghana. Friends of ours take regular trips to Ghana to support building the educational infrastructure, but tell us that there is so much more that is missing. And clean water is something I often take for granted, so I would love to give the gift of healthy, clean water to kids.

  7. Charlotte Cooper says:

    What a great idea! I have just signed up and will firstly go towards helping the Compassion Child Survival Program Ethiopia that helps mums and babies grow stronger and survive things we don’t have to face. It seems like something simple to be able to survive, but these people face extra challenges and the fact we can help them by doing pretty much nothing…. is incredible!! Thanks for introducing this to me 🙂

  8. Briana says:

    I just signed up! The Winter Warmth 4 Women in Columbus, OH looks like a good localish project to support!

  9. I just signed up! I would probably also join the Child Survival Program in Ethiopia, although a lot of the other projects look fascinating and worthwhile, of course!

    What a great website and so many wonderful causes, it is hard to pick one, but I decided to stay local since I am in Georgia and the Industrial Sewing Machine project is a great cause giving jobs to refugees and teaching them marketable skills that they can use and grow to provide for their families.

  17. Sheila says:

    Just signed up, & I’ll be backing the Compassion program in Ethiopia. Love Compassion.

  18. Teej says:

  27. Kathy says:

    I just signed up for the children’s hospital in Ukraine. I’ve been to Ukraine and had visited another hospital there so I can really imagine what this one is like. I’m so glad there is a way to help them, and it’s so easy! What a wonderful idea!

  28. Yes! Signed up last week. Backed Mercy House – but they are funded – hoping they add projects too!

    I added Tsh’s Compassion Project, love them!

    Now, I need to shop! Much left to do!

  29. i signed up a few months ago and have been looking for the right place to donate once i earn some credits. just purchased hotel rooms with the plug-in so as soon as that comes in, i’ll be choosing a cause!

  30. Jennifer says:

    I am in love with this site and so thankful you shared it with all of us. I cannot wait to pick out different charities each time. Right now I am really passionate about WaterIsLife. We have been on several teams with providing clean drinking water in different parts of the world. It is such a basic need that I am so blessed to have but so many don’t have. Thanks again for sharing!

    1. Jennifer says:

      Just wanted to let you know that I signed up with our family e-mail address instead of just mine so Nick and I could both access account info.

  31. I am all signed up! I will be Compassion Child Survival Program Ethiopia! I am so excited about this and I know an amazing young woman who would be honored by a gift like this if I win! Praises and thank you for getting us all involved!

    I signed up. I’ll be backing Malariacube.

  43. Theresa Houze says:

    I’m still investigating all the charities available, and it’s hard to not want to fund them all, but one that caught my eye was microloans for Rwandan widows. My school is working in Rwanda as well and I love the idea of an opportunity to help in this way now.

  44. Kat Libby says:

    I signed up- great site! I’m backing Help Home Alone Children, which gives kids in China mittens, hats, scarves and winter coats.

  45. Leah says:

    I will be backing the eyeglass clinic in Peru. I can not imagine the hardship of providing for a family without the ability to see. How blessed I am to have glasses!

  46. Mindy H says:

    I am backing ‘Winter Warmth 4 Women’. There was a mother in my area who froze to death after giving her children the only blankets they owned. No child should be without a mother when their death could have been prevented.

  47. I’m so excited to learn about Pure Charity! I’m signed up and would love to support Compassion’s Child Survival program in Ethiopia. 🙂

  48. Julia Kaufman says:

    Pure Charity is a really neat website! Now I feel even more justified in shopping! 😉

    I will be backing the Child Survival Program in Ethiopia.

  49. nathania h says:

    I just signed up. What an amazing program to be able to reach people in need! Awesome!

  51. Beth says:

    Very cool site! Thanks for sharing! I will be backing the treatment of child malnutrition in Somalia project!

  52. Kiley Schnarr says:

    I just signed up! This is such a great site with some really wonderful and very worthy causes on there!!! It’s nice that this site has brought awareness to these charities/ organizations and make them so easily accessible by displaying them on one site. I’m quite excited about this! I will definitely be supporting the Samaritan’s Purse Organization as the past two years my children have had the opportunity to work with them and it’s been such a positive experience for my family. I’ve seen firsthand the good that comes from it! It’s so heartwarming!

  53. I signed up, and I am backing the same one as you. I love supporting Compassion any way I can because it is such an amazing organization!

  54. Pam L says:

    I signed up about a month ago and have been Christmas shipping online. I’m back a local organization for Clean Laundry.

  55. Just signed up! There are so many great charities to choose from. I love the Child Survival Program in Ethiopia. We support 2 Compassion kids and think it’s a great ministry!

  61. I just signed up too!! Will be backing the clean water project for sure and can’t wait to look into more! Thanks for the info!!

  62. I love this. First saw how Pure Charity works at the Together for Adoption Conference in Atlanta in September. We support a local non-profit, Families Outreach, that provides adoption grants, partners with international orphanages, and advocates for orphans. This way of giving is so easy and accessible.

  63. Katie says:

    I signed up! And I’m backing the organization you are, because I don’t know anyone personally who has created a project and I trust you. 🙂

    I did just tell my friend who has a nonprofit benefitting orphans in South Africa about Pure Charity. She should totally try to get involved! It’s so cool!

  64. Ok, so I just set up an account. This looks fascinating, and I’m totally on board. I need to spend a little more time digging through the charities, but at first glance, I’m digging one called: Care for Orphans and Trafficking Victims in Benin

    I’m pretty passionate about the human trafficking epidemic, and would love to support a stop to that.

  65. Rosalind says:

    I just signed up, and backed the Hurricane Sandy relief fund…
    being from Louisiana, i know what they have and are going through…the damage takes YEARS to rebuild. Our state is STILL not back to what it was before we were hit so bad!

  66. Erin says:

    How neat! And an awesome selection of retailers! I have used rebate toolbars in the past, but don’t have one currently, so what better way to start back up! I am backing the Care for Orphans and Trafficking Victims in Benin (Phase 2) in Ghana. Thanks for the opportunity!

  67. sarah says:

    I am now changing my shopping way.. Thanks for the information, Have a Merry Christmas

  68. Elisabeth says:

    My heart did skip a beat when I read this! 🙂 I signed up and will definitely be backing the Care for Orphans and Trafficking Victims in Benin charity. It hurts my heart to think about children being trafficked.
    Thank you for letting us know about this program.

  69. Jennifer says:

    I just signed up. I love the Compassion Child Survival Program in Ethiopia.

  70. I’m backing CLEAN WATER FOR FLAVILLE, HAITI! They had such a huge area of people their impacting and so few backers! Let my online shopping go towards some good! I also backed the Compassion organization…I have some “kids” through Compassion so I figure it’d be a clear choice!

  71. Madeline says:

    I signed up and I’ll be backing the “Care for Orphans and Trafficking Victims in Benin (Phase 2)”.

  72. Jessica says:

    I signed up for a Pure Charity Account. Thanks for the give away and getting me to sign up with the organization.

  76. traceyclark says:

    The Belize development project looks pretty cool.

  85. Danielle says:

    I am Backing “Investing In Girls” and am SO stoked about this project as well as the giveaway!! 🙂

  86. This is a really cool take on cashback sites. There are so many worthwhile causes on there. I thought that the “Care for Orphans and Trafficking Victims in Benin (Phase 2)” looked like a great one as they are providing food, shelter, healthcare, and other necessities for orphans.

    Here is my PureCharity account: https://purecharity.com/beeb-ashcroft

      Jenn…I commented earlier but I wanted to thank you. I shopped today at lunch and cannot wait to see what the credit to the Orphans in China is when my purchases post. It is such a dear cause to my family….I have shared it with all of them too. Happy Holidays! Sherry Balzano
