Giving Back [2015]

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Wasn’t planning to post this week, but I came across this and thought I’d share.

Several years ago, I went over some of my favorite charities. Well, through the end of this year, PayPal is generously adding 1% to all of the donations that you make through its site, sending 101% of your donation to your charity(ies) of choice! If 1% doesn’t seem like much to you, then you need to give enough until it does! 😉

They have a ton of charities listed, including all of the ones listed in that previous post. Even though you’ll actually be giving to the PayPal Giving Fund, it’s a registered 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is still tax deductible.

I’m assuming (you know how the old adage goes) that this means your favorite charity(ies) won’t get dinged the usual 2.9% + $0.30 credit card fee (2.2% + $0.30 for eligible non-profits). I used a credit card and didn’t see any fees on my end, either, so maybe PayPal’s actually footing more than just 1%!

Be sure to take advantage of this offer soon, since it ends on 31 December. Just go to the PayPal site and click “Donate Now” or use the direct link here. (Don’t worry, it’s not a referral link.)

Be excellent to each other, and Happy New Year!
