7. Help Homeschoolers While You Shop

Here's a great way to help homeschoolers while shopping online for
Christmas: Purchase materials online from a company that gives to the
Home School Foundation. All you do is go to Clicks for Homeschooling
and click on the link to the store of your choice. Then shop normally.
The store will track that you came from the HSLDA site and give a
percentage of what you spend to the Foundation. You don't spend an
extra penny.
