Supporters now have the opportunity to help Care Plus Foundation when they shop at their favorite online merchants. By adding an extra click through Care Plus’ online mall (http://CarePlus.we-care.com), a percentage of what shoppers spend will be donated to the organization — at no extra cost to the shopper.
Despite the economic downturn, shoppers are still spending money, they’re just spending it more thoughtfully. Now, thanks to Care Plus Foundation’s new partnership with We-Care.com, getting the most for your money can also include supporting Care Plus’ work.
“Everyone knows these are tough financial times,” says Tara Augustine, Executive Director of Care Plus Foundation. “Now, more than ever, every donation is crucial to help us build a brighter world for those suffering with mental health issues.”
We-Care.com co-founder Kevin Lee said he expects this partnership to fill a void during this down economy. “Shoppers give what they can to their personal causes, but are no doubt feeling the realities of a challenging economy,” he said. “Care Plus Foundation’s marketplace saves shoppers money with coupons and special offers, while also generating donations.”
We-Care.com’s 700 merchants — from florists, booksellers and clothiers to pet stores, gift basket companies and one-of-a kind boutiques — offer shoppers a wide variety of items sure to suit their shopping needs. The donation percentage for each merchant varies and is listed on Care Plus Foundation’s online marketplace, and donations go to the organization. Retailers include Target.com, Amazon.com, FAO Schwarz, Zappos.com, Nike and Brookstone. Shoppers can also book vacation or business travel on the site through major online travel agencies and car rental companies. We-Care.com is adding new retailers daily.
Consumers have two ways to shop: clicking through http://CarePlus.we-care.com to one of their favorite merchants or downloading the We-Care.com Reminder Plug-In — a secure browser extension that reminds shoppers to make purchases count for Care Plus Foundation whenever they visit a participating merchant. All purchases are made directly from the merchant’s site, and shoppers never pay more for using We-Care.com.
