Tis Best

These work like any other gift card, except that instead of buying stuff from a store, the recipient can spend it to support the charity of their choice (hopefully La Leche League International!). For more information, visit www.tisbest.org. The FAQ section is especially informative.

Goodsearch

Use GoodSearch, powered by Yahoo, as your search engine and each search results in money for LLLI.

Community

Identify groups in your community doing fundraisers for charitable organizations and ask how LLLI could qualify to be one of the benefiting groups.

Donate Your Birthday

About two months before your birthday, Facebook may prompt you to donate your birthday. You will be able to select one of the 750,000 U.S. nonprofits (hopefully La Leche League International!) on Facebook, set a goal amount and enter a custom message. Your friends will then see the post and a prompt to donate. The mini-fundraiser is automatically public, and ends at midnight on your birthday.

Businesses Supporting Charities in Lieu of Exchanging Gifts

If your business donates to a charitable organization during the holidays in lieu of exchanging gifts, submit La Leche League International as one of the charities for your business to support. If your business currently does not make a donation to a charitable organization, ask if your business has a charitable fund and if they would consider making a donation to La Leche League International.
