 In the post-recession, school, youth group and nonprofit world, donations are substantially down and demand for support is high. Everywhere schools and groups are avidly searching for newer and more powerful fundraising sources. Many are looking for healthier and greener choices. 

Enter, a modern twist on fundraising that - according to founder Laura Shifrin, pays schools and non-profit partners 3-4 times more in donations than most others.

Sure, there are already tens of dozens of online shopping malls that offer commissions or donations to member schools and non-profit organizations. "These programs, by their very own admission, deliver an average of just 2-3% of net sales. The reality is, only very few online retailers in such programs pay at the highest levels, as we do." says Laura Shifrin, founder since 2008 with just over 30 years experience in marketing, sales and fundraising. "When we first conducted our research we collaborated with South Florida schools, non-profits and community leaders. Our program is parent friendly. No more door to door sales and no more collecting cash or checks."

"Instead of basing our donations on net profits like most others, we base our donations on gross sales, a full 15%., has cut aggressive deals with several large manufacturers.  Do the math, 15% of gross sales, is huge."
