When you’re online, are you…

A) Shopping or selling
B) Searching for information
C) Helping fund childhood cancer research
D) All the above.

If you’re answer isn’t D, it can be — and it’s super easy too!

Did you know that there are things that you are already doing online that can be turned into donations towards lifesaving childhood cancer research? Here are three ways to take your online activity to the next level by turning your actions into real donations — it couldn’t be any easier than this!

1. AmazonSmile

Shop AmazonSmile, and Amazon.com will donate 0.5% of the purchase value to the charity of your choice… and of course your choice will be St. Baldrick’s!

Follow this link to sign up to have your purchases benefit St. Baldrick’s.

You won’t have to create a new Amazon.com account. Just sign in with your existing Amazon username and password, and remember to follow this link (bookmark it for easy reference) every time you make a purchase. Be sure it says “Supporting: St. Baldrick’s Foundation” in the top left of the webpage before you check out.

You can support St. Baldrick’s Foundation when shopping on your mobile device using the AmazonSmile app on iOS and Android. Simply follow these instructions to turn on AmazonSmile and start generating donations.

Almost all Amazon items are eligible, which means shopping to give back to children’s cancer research, is a no-brainer!

Start Shopping AmazonSmile Style!

2. Set Microsoft “Bing” as Your Default Search Engine

When you search Bing in “Give Mode,” your searches earn points for your cause – select St. Baldrick’s as your cause and you will be supporting childhood cancer research every time you search. The more you search, the more you’ll give—at no cost to you. The Give with Bing extension sets Bing as your default search engine, making the process seamless.

To date, Microsoft Rewards members have contributed more than $2 million to non-profits around the globe. Use the extension for quick access to your giving history, opportunities to share your impact, and new ways to donate.

To get started, install the extension and sign in with a Microsoft account to join Microsoft Rewards, loyalty program. This will enable Give Mode on Bing.

Add the “Give with Bing” extension to Chrome

3. Donate Through eBay When Buying or Selling

When shopping or selling on eBay you can support St. Baldrick’s by adding a donation when you buy an item or donate a percentage of your sale when selling an item. Why not donate a portion of the sale when selling those old treasures found in the attic and help fund lifesaving childhood cancer research?

Shop or Sell on eBay
