Here's a sample email you can send to your supporters to encourage them to visit your Charity Blast page and shop. (revise as necessary)
Please check out CharityBlast.com, a great website that will donate a portion of EVERY purchase you make at online stores like Target, Best Buy, Gap, Old Navy, Staples and more to (your organization name) at no additional cost to you. Please find (your organization name) on the front page menu of www.CharityBlast.com and shop for our cause!
You're on your way to effortlessly earning funds for your organization while your supporters shop securely online.
Now that you have an account, consider doing the following to maximize your earnings:
1. "Send to a Friend" Use the send page to a friend tool to send the site to your supporters. Encourage them to sign up for our email list and we'll send out notices periodically to your supporters to remind them to shop and support, giving them discounts and coupon codes to use Gap, Old Navy, Expedia, Best Buy and other stores found on Charity Blast. We do not send out junk mail, and never share our email addresses with anyone for any reason.
2. Place an ad or a link to Charityblast.com on your website. You can use this graphic if you like. Just copy and paste the code and place it in your page. Or, just create a text link that connects to http://www.charityblast.com. If this is a foreign language to you (we understand), just send your webmaster to this page and they'll know what to do.
Copy this code to use this ad in your organization's website:
3. Remind your supporters often! Email your supporters often (we suggest weekly), emphasizing that they can save money and support your cause at no extra cost to them by visiting CharityBlast.com first, then connecting to their favorite stores from your shopping page. Some shoppers may feel it's "too good to be true" that they can save money AND give to your cause at the same time... convince them to try it and see!
And most importantly...
4. Use Charity Blast Yourself!
Regardless of your organization's size, it's EASY to earn thousands of dollars annually when your staff uses Charity Blast for personal shopping, office supplies, photo processing, electronics and other everyday purchases. And when your staff is using Charity Blast, rest assured they will be much more likely to encourage others to do the same!
Charity begins at home, after all.
