Shop with Scrip

A few weeks ago, if we're Facebook friends you may have watched my SUPER awkward live video. If you watched already, scroll on through. If not, feel free to do so now.



I was talking about the super awesome Shop With Scrip and how they are fundraising for Girls on the Run and you can too!!



Through my involvement with GOTR Capital Area as a volunteer and Solemate, I got the opportunity to share more about this great way to fund-raise. I would really love to see our local council or Solemate group be able to utilize Shop With Scrip in the future. I have volunteered at numerous local GOTR 5k races, participated on 5k planning committees, and have raised money as a Solemate for the 4th year in a row. I really appreciate everything that GOTR stands for and teaches young girls and I think we all wish there was something like GOTR when we were younger. I enjoy every event that I have participated in and will continue to sing praises for GOTR.

So what's the deal with Shop with Scrip?

The concept is simple enough:
1. Sign up your organization
2. Spread the word
3. People buy gift cards to places they already shop
4. Your organization benefits!

It really is that simple. You can visit their website to download a starter kit to review and decide if the program is something that would work for your organization. I really loved and was impressed by the amount of retailers they are linked with and, unlike some other services, they REALLY are giftcards to places I shop at all the time- Bed Bath & Beyond, Starbucks, Target, Amazon, Walmart and the list seriously goes on and on.  I am pretty sure we ALL know some people (or are those people) who shop at these places very regularly. Why not support your favorite organization in the process? 2-16% of every gift care purchased goes back to the organization. It all adds up for your local church, sports team, or school!

Don't forget that you can visit their website here to find out more info and to get started fundraising for your organization. If you'd like to participate in raising funds for GOTR through Shop With Scrip, please contact me for an access code!
