The holiday season has arrived, and surely you are busy with all the typical "hustle and bustle" of the season. It may seem impossible to even consider adding another thing to your TO DO list. But maybe there is room to end the year with a final generous act (keeping those affected by PE/HELLP in mind) while you enjoy time with friends and family.
---Donate to PF in honor of someone
---Make room for new toys and gifts by taking old items to consignment and then donating sales income to PF
---If you host a dinner or party, remind guests to bring loose change and coins for a Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pennies for a PurposeÃ¢â‚¬Â collection jar to benefit PF
---Check out local holiday bazaars or store-fronts and ask to host a bake sale table with proceeds going to PF.
---Use GoodSearch.com when shopping on-line. Change your search engine to GoodSearch.com. Select "Preeclampsia Foundation" as the charity of choice. PF will receive revenue every time you search for gifts, store locations, or any other topic.
---Use GoodShop.com to make holiday purchases (800 popular stores) and PF will receive a donation on portions of every purchase.
---If you are more ambitious this time of year, consider a Cocktail Party or Casino Night with a donation fee collected.
