Simple Way to Make a Difference: Wholly Guacamole

Posted on

Looking for a way to make a difference but don’t have much money or time to spend? This sums me up so I figured it might apply to others as well. Well, today I noticed a post on Wholly Guacamole’s Facebook page. It supports Operation Purple which helps children of military families go to camp. Wholly Guacamole’s goal is to send 100 kids to camp and it needs your help.

Simply buy a t-shirt (sizes range from youth to adult XXL) for $10. Yep, that’s all. Ten dollars for a shirt and you’re helping a kid attend camp. Don’t have need of a shirt? No problem, you can donate money and bypass the shirt. It’s simple. It’s different. It’s a way to help someone when your time and money are limited.


Help a School!

Posted on

A new school year has begun and with it come the multitude of fundraisers. They aren’t as bad as when I was a kid and schools sent home fundraiser packets the first week, but they do cost money which is something I have little of at the moment.

If you find yourself in the same boat you’re probably wondering why I’m even talking school fundraisers if I can’t afford to donate. Well, I’ll tell you why. If you’re a Facebook user you can help your school at no cost. Target has started a promotion to send $25 gift cards to schools and will send up to $10,000 per school. It’s called “Give with Target” on Facebook. All you need to do is visit its Facebook page, type in your school’s name, city and state then vote for it. It’s a once a week vote. For every 25 votes a $25 gift card will be sent to the school.

Target is giving out $2.5 million through its FB giveaway and if you’re not going to vote for a local school I’d appreciate you voting for my kids school. Just click here. I try not to give out a ton of personal information online, but I’m making an exception for my school of choice: Cleveland Elementary, Elkhart, Ind. If you vote for your school, thank you. If you vote for mine, thank you. Either way, all of our kids benefit. Make a difference and help a school today.

Eversave: Great Deals

As many of you know, I’ve made it a point to search out and join as many member’s only websites as possible. In addition to those, I signed up at discount websites as well. One of those places is called Eversave. The awesome thing about Eversave is that when you purchase something and share your purchase on Facebook, Twitter or by email you are given a $2 credit.

Now, it doesn’t seem like much, but if you pay attention you can get some great deals with that $2. When you first sign up you’re given a $3 credit. With my $3 I was able to get a year’s subscription to Women’s Day for $2. I shared my purchase on Facebook, Twitter and by email and received $2. With my $2 credit I was able to get a year’s subscription to All You magazine for $8.

Sometimes if you participate in conversations on Facebook you get rewarded. What the… Yep, you heard it correctly. You can get free stuff for commenting on different site’s Facebook pages. A little over a week ago, I commented on Eversave’s Facebook page and was rewarded with a $10 credit. This week I found a deal on Facebook that my girls loved: Ouchies. They offered a $20 gift certificate for $10. Yep, the very same $10 I received for commenting online. The kids picked out two tins of designer bandages and I only paid $5.95 to cover shipping.

Today, Eversave is offering a Vivitar camera at a 50 percent discount which means you pay $69 for the camera, a rechargeable battery, charger, USB cable, 4GB memory card, a camera case with carry strap, mini tripod, microfiber cloth, and LCD cleaning fluid.

Keep in mind that the deal you see will differ based upon the city you select. The camera is being offered under Grand Rapids. Under the Indianapolis tab is a vacation to Cabo San Lucas for $199 and Chicago is offering a $50 gift card toward Ringling Bros. Circus, Chicago Blackhawks and other event tickets at for $25.
