Another way that I’ve been giving is through the Smile service provided by Amazon. Like most Americans I purchase a fair amount of goods through amazon.com so I’ve chosen to have a portion of my purchase total to a non-profit organization that I feel is doing a fair amount of good in the state of New Jersey: Tri-City People’s Corporation. They provide educational and housing counseling, housing, physical and mental health care, as well as a number of other services like childcare to those in need.
This is a great way to actively support organizations in a passive manner while still providing a little extra funding to help them to help others. It costs nothing extra, and I don’t see why more people wouldn’t want to take advantage of this service.
