If you shop online, consider the idea of registering to start each shopping session at the iGive.com website. You can select The Brights’ Net as your “Cause” and you can then shop at any store in the iGive.com network, earning a small commission for the Brights (at no cost to you) with each purchase.
Most store commissions are in the 1% to 3% range. There are over 800 stores available. Examples are: barnesandnoble.com, peets.com, and jcpenney.com. To check it all out, go to: http://www.iGive.com/TheBrightsNet
There is one very important “extra” for those interested. The Brights’ Net will earn a $5 bonus for each new person to register with iGive.com via the link. That is, even a simple registration can be helpful to the Brights, whether or not you plan to shop. You can consider the pros and cons at: http://www.iGive.com/TheBrightsNetThe Brights movement is sustained by The Bright' Net, a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization [EIN 56-2385064].
