Shopping = Giving Back

Updated: Apr 18, 2019

If you’re like many of us, online shopping is among one of your favorite pastimes. There’s nothing quite like a little retail therapy to ease your stress levels. And, even if you’re not doing retail therapy, shopping online is a convenient way to avoid crowds and purchase the things you need, all from the comfort of your favorite chair. What if we told you that simply by shopping, you could make charitable contributions that help change lives?

That’s right! We’d like to introduce you to Giving Assistant. Giving Assistant’s mission is to “transform everyday shopping into charitable action.” This means, that simply by signing up for Giving Assistant and installing an extension in your internet browser, a portion of every purchase you make from literally thousands of online retailers will be donated to your favorite charity! Many of your favorite online destinations such as Sam’s Club, H&M, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, and Free People have all taken to Giving Assistant and pledged to donate a portion of online purchases made through Giving Assistant to the shopper’s favorite charity.

But what does it cost? Nothing. With Giving Assistant, there’s no fee or hidden charges; just a lot of good will. And THAT makes everyone feel better.

So how does it work? Simply visit Giving Assistant’s website. Follow the prompts to create an account and register for cash back. You can choose to keep all of the cash you receive from shopping, or you can choose to send all of it or a portion to Drawn from Valor (because we’re your fave, right?). But that’s not all!! Giving Assistant matches all of your cash back donations dollar for dollar.

At Drawn from Valor, we believe that art makes a difference. We create animated resources to educate and empower children who are dealing with complex medical issues like PTSD and Type 1 Diabetes. But the thing is … animation is expensive to create and we can’t do it without your help.

How often do you get a chance to positively change someone’s life? Now imagine you can do it by purchasing something you were already going to buy and selecting Drawn from Valor. Please join us today.

Thank you for making a difference.
