Great news! CMT Awareness Month is almost here and we’ve created a special line of products at Zazzle.com to help spread the word that the time to cure CMT is now!
These great-looking products are fun to wear or use, and Zazzle gives 10 percent of the purchase price to the CMTA.
Plus, if you make your purchase at Zazzle through iGive, an additional 8 percent of the purchase price will be donated to the CMTA. That means that for every $10 you spend at the CMTA Zazzle store, $1.80 will be donated to the CMTA.
But wait … there’s still more. We hope you’ll do it sooner, but if you are not already an iGive member, join by October 31, 2011, and the CMTA will receive $5 as soon as you sign up and a $5 bonus when you make your first purchase, also by October 31, 2011.
Join our supporters helping us through iGive
Since it began 1997, iGive has donated nearly $6 millon to the causes selected by its members.
The CMTA became a cause in 2004, and since then just 441 supporters have raised $3,266 by making purchase online though the iGive shopping portal.
We believe we can do better.
Think about it. In the course of a year, do you make $250 in online purchases? Excluding expensive items such as appliances, TVs, and cameras, the average household spends at least that much. It would be even more if you add in those items, airline tickets, hotels, etc.
Now consider what would happen if you and the other 2,469 members of the CMTA Online Community were iGive members and supporting the CMTA. Oh, and let's not forget that you probably can get at least two of your friends to sign up and support the CMTA.
That means we could easily have as many as 7,500 people supporting the CMTA through iGive. At $250 each, that's $1.8 million a year in online purchases, and virtually all of them can be made at stores in the iGive network.
The percentage donated by each merchant varies, but if it averaged 2 percent, the CMTA could receive $37,500 a year, all at no cost to you or your friends!
Given those numbers, we believe we have to do better!
So start helping today. All you have to do is go to iGive.com, choose the CMTA as your cause, and begin shopping.
And don't forget to share this with your friend and ask them to help!
