Have you started school shopping? John, the college bound freshman needs a laptop from QVC. George, your oldest’s job takes him across the country and needs hotel.com for extended stay. Carol and Brenda need new fashion outfits from Forever to sport that first week of school in middle school. You decided to work on the family tree from Ancestory.com. Tom, your husband wants to order steaks for the Labor Day picnic from Omaha Steaks. Whew…all the money going out to different places. So many find it hard to help non profit organizations. As soon as school starts, fundraisers are going to start. Who is selling cookie doughs and who is selling T-Shirts? Wish there was an easier way to donate to school without buying something else?
