Last month, we tried something new to help Ethiopian Orphan Relief and all the causes listed at iGive. It worked better than
we ever expected. We donated over $5,000 in less than 24 hours, so we’re going to try it again!
It requires your participation, but it is free and definitely easy.
For each person who joins iGive using the special link below and does just one qualified web search on our
site between now and noon Thursday, we’ll give Ethiopian Orphan Relief a dollar.
5,000 new members, $5,000. No purchase necessary. That’s 5,000 new members for all causes, not just
yours, so it’s a bit of race.
Of course, if these new members search more (or buy something at an iGive store) they’ll earn even more
money for Ethiopian Orphan Relief. Right now, we’re donating a special $.02 per search and a
bonus $5 for that first purchase plus the usual percentage.
Here’s where you come in. The only way Ethiopian Orphan Relief will get new supporters and that free $1 (or more)
is if you invite them. Send your friends, family, and colleagues the following link in an e-mail, tweet it, do a
Facebook posting, put up posters, shout from mountain tops (you know the drill) and let them know you think
Ethiopian Orphan Relief is pretty cool and deserves their support, especially since it’s free! You can even just forward
This is the link:
We’re really proud of our search capability, powered by Yahoo! We’ve made tons of improvements over the
past five months, so we want lots of people to try it out and put it to the test. If they keep on searching or
shopping after testing us out, so much the better for Ethiopian Orphan Relief.
– Offer active between now and 11:59 a.m., January 21, 2010 (Chicago time).
– New members only (never have been an iGive member previously). All the normal rules of membership, searching, and
purchasing apply, our site has the details.
– Once we’ve given away $5,000 in total, the offer ends.
– The special link is important. No link, no qualified web search, no $1.
