Give a Gift To Your Community.
There are easy ways to make the money you spend worth a lot more! Designate Lynchburg Grows as your charity of choice, and a percentage of whatever you spend at these sites or shops will help keep us growing. Here's how to do it:
Go to amazonsmile and designate Lynchburg Grows as your charity of choice. Then, whenever you want to make a purchase from amazon, make sure you do it through the "amazonsmile" site. Amazon makes it easy - once you have designated a charity, you should see a little pop-up window whenever you visit amazon.com, which will remind you to shop through amazonsmile instead.
You can designate a percentage of anything you sell on ebay to benefit Lynchburg Grows. According to ebay, items listed to benefit charities sell faster and for more money than regular listings. Find out more about it at this ebay Giving Works page, and learn how to do it with this step-by-step guide.
You can also designate a donation to Lynchburg Grows whenever you buy something on ebay. Just log in to ebay, go to the ebay for Charity page, type "Lynchburg Grows" into the search box, then click "add to your favorites." Then, whenever you make a purchase, you'll have the chance to designate a donation amount that will go to Lynchburg Grows.
The PayPal Giving Fund administers all the donations made by shopping on ebay. It is also the best way to make a financial donation directly to us, because it waives all fees and percentages. So, whatever you give, 100% gets where you want it to go! You do need a PayPal account to use the Giving Fund.
You can also give every time you use your Kroger card, with their Community Rewards program. This is a valuable tool for us, as those pennies really add up! All you have to do is register (or sign-in) at their Community Rewards page, here, then designate Lynchburg Grows as the organization you want to accept your contributions.
The code that you'll need to enter for Lynchburg Grows is: 87727.
Then go get your groceries or gas just as you always do. Only, now, you can be a little happier about it, knowing that you're giving back.
Oh, And While You're Out...
If you're out shopping at any brick-and-mortar store, always feel free to pick something up for us, too! We're also happy to take any second-hand gardening or farming items, if you no longer need them. Here are a few examples:
- Irrigation system piping and parts
- Gardening tools - rakes, hoes, shovels, pruners, etc.
- Materials for organic gardening - fertilizers, beneficial plants, insects, etc.
If you have any of these or other items you would like to donate, please CONTACT us.
