"Little by little, a little becomes a lot."
This Tanzanian proverb sums up for us the impact that a whole community making small choices can have on Camp. Little changes in daily actions can grow to create a large impact on our community, and we want to share with you a few ways you can help Camp Albrecht Acres without really even thinking about it!
In under two minutes your Amazon account can be linked to "Amazon Smile"- the EXACT SAME site as Amazon, and Amazon-driven, which takes a portion of the items you purchase and donates it to the cause of your choice. At no cost to you, but two minutes of your time, this is a great way to assist with financial donations to Camp Albrecht Acres without changing your routine. Spend on items you would already be purchasing and feel good about helping the cause you love! While it may not seem like your contribution is making a difference, if every person who reads this blog makes the change we could create massive impact for our campers.
Do you throw your pocket change into a jar when you get home, or the cup holder of your car? Take that change in and donate it to your favorite cause! Pretty simple, but a great way to get that unwanted, cluttered change out of your house and for a good cause!
Another simple computer website change that makes an impact is using the web browser "Goodsearch," which links to the exact same search results you would normally get using the search engine, Bing. This site makes a donation to the charity of your choice simply through your searches. Each search donates 1 penny to your cause; sounds like it's not going to help? Wrong! We search things on the internet multiple times a day, you'll be surprised how quickly dollars start racking up!
5s for A Cause
One simple money-saving technique is to set aside every $5 bill that comes into your hands. That $5 shouldn't make or break your budget, but at the end of the year you'll have a nice chunk of funds to donate to your cause! Knowing you are setting aside the bills for a good cause should make it easier, as well!
These simple ways to fundraise on your own can make a huge difference in the lives of our campers. We thank you for your support, as always, and hope this list helps you find new ways to make a difference for all the causes you enjoy supporting!
