FROM THE HEART
Support homeschooling when you shop online
What do Alpha Omega Publishers, Best Buy, Land's End, and Gevalia have in common? They are all participating companies in Clicks for Homeschooling!
By donating a portion of online sales to the Home School Foundation, these and 95 other well-known companies join with the Foundation in giving needy homeschoolers tangible encouragement to continue teaching their children at home.
These companies donate either a percentage or a set amount of online proceeds to the Foundation. For example, Bookcloseouts.com donates 13% of every online purchase made through Clicks for Homeschooling, and photo developer Snapfish.com donates $8.50. These amounts add up to real help for needy homeschoolers-this April the Foundation received $2,161. Since Clicks began 13 months ago, it has raised over $15,170 for the Foundation. (All donations go toward HSF's Compassion Fund.)
"The beauty of this program is how easy it is. All you do is add a couple extra clicks to your online shopping processes and the Foundation gets the money," says Andrew Hawes, Home School Legal Defense Association webmaster and Clicks for Homeschooling program coordinator. "And our list of retailers continues to grow as people suggest additions."
