You can support our one-to-one mentoring programs while shopping for Christmas and holiday gifts this year. We are proud to continue our partnerships with Nordstrom Rack & AmazonSmile, and excited to announce a new partnership with eSmart recycling. Here are three ways you can give back to your community and donate to a local charity.
Nordstrom Rack will donate 70% of their funds earned until December 31 to the BBBS agency in that store’s zip code. As a new option this year, online customers will also have the option to make a donation on the website. (Does not apply to mobile app purchases. Please use your web browser [Google Chrome or other] to make your purchases or head to your local Nordstrom Rack.)
Simply shop at smile.amazon.com or with AmazonSmile on in the Amazon Shopping app to give back on (most) of your everyday purchases. Choose Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay as your charity of choice and a portion from each purchase made is donated to us. When you shop at smile.amazon.com we receive 0.5% of eligible purchases at no extra cost to you! You can also browse our Amazon Charity Wishlist to donate an item and have it delivered directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay via Amazon.
Planning on replacing your laptop, television, or iPad this holiday shopping season? Don’t toss your old tech — donate it to eSmart Recycling and help our organization keep kids connected with their mentors. When you contact them to schedule a pickup, be sure to mention it is on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. As one of our newest partners, eSmart Recycling has already donated 15 laptops to our mobile computer lab. Now, our Littles will be able to chat with their Bigs during lunch hours while at school.
Thank you in advance for believing in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay this holiday season and throughout the year. It truly takes a village to make impactful and lasting changes in our communities.
