Pure Charity iPad Mini Giveaway {Don’t Just Shop, Shop and Change the World}

Pure Charity iPad Mini Giveaway

So I introduced you to the brilliance and simplicity of Pure Charity on Tuesday, and today I get to draw you in further by this HUGE…I mean MINI… Mini but MIGHTY iPad Giveaway, which Pure Charity has so generously offered to give to one of you!

You guys… I know.  Did your heart just skip a beat too?

So here’s the scoop.  Listen carefully.  Huddle up. Come one – come all.

1. First if you haven’t already sign up for an account with Pure Charity. {This is a MUST to be entered for the giveaway!}

2. Install the plug-in or shop through the rewards/shopping page.  Shop at your favorite retailers.  {Target, Shutterfly, Southwest, Groupon, Lowes, West Elm, Gap, Staples, Walmart, YOU NAME IT!}

Pure charity retailers list

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!

    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!

    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! I also really like the Seeds of Hope Rehabilitation Campaign. Last year, we took in a girl from Afghanistan and the stories she shared were heartbreaking!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
