iGive shoppers mean $30 - $100 a
year in donations,
free. And, this
month, new supporters can mean $5 even if they don't shop. On top of that, your members can help Breakthrough Corporation win $1,000 or $500. Everybody who joins to support Breakthrough Corporation
and tries the iGive Button through 10/15/14 means $5, free.That alone is exciting. But there's more.
Ask your members to spread the word about how iGive can help ANY cause or charity. Not just Breakthrough
Corporation. The member who invites the most people who join iGive and
try the iGive Button win
$1,000 for his or her cause. Second
and third place winners mean $500 for their causes. It doesn't matter
what cause that new member chooses to help. If the member who got the
most new members is supporting Breakthrough Corporation, you win!
MUST use THEIR personalized iGive Tell A Friend link to invite new members, otherwise that new member won't
count towards winning. It's easy.
Send your supporters this link:
http://www.iGive.com/html/tellafriend.cfm and ask them to use the personalized Tell A Friend link they'll find on that
page to invite friends to join iGive. If a supporter isn't already a
member of iGive, they can join (and earn Breakthrough Corporation $5 when
they try the iGive Button).Your members will also be able to see how well they're doing in getting new
members to join and possibly win $1,000 or $500 for Breakthrough Corporation. So, why not? Keep getting that word out so that Breakthrough Corporation earns an
extra $5 for new iGive members. That's in
addition to the normal donation amount. There's never been a better time to ask
folks to help your group, at no cost to you or to them.
