Shopping for Mother's Day? Don't forget to use iGive.com to benefit both Mom and IAEM!
Many of us are thinking about having a gift or flowers sent to our mothers for the upcoming Mother's Day on May 12, 2013. There's a way that you can donate to IAEM Scholarships while reminding Mom how much you appreciate her. The secret to combining your online shopping with charitable donations to the IAEM Scholarship Program is simple — just go to
. Each participating store gives a percentage of what you spend to the non-profit organization that you select as your charity when you register.
"I used iGive.com again last night for a LandsEnd order," said Beth Armstrong, CEM. "It looks like I've generated $20 in contributions for our cause — and I know I can do better than that." Beth subsequently reported an additional balance of $25. She is using iGive.com to order K-up coffee supplies, LandsEnd clothing for her family, and flowers for special occasions. Communications & Marketing Manager Dawn Shiley has raised $113 for IAEM Scholarships through iGive.com, and she often takes advantage of the discount coupons that iGive posts for your favorite online stores.
Almost $700 has been raised for IAEM Scholarships in return for registered users simply clicking through the iGive website before beginning online shopping at participating stores. A new feature is an iGive button that you can add to your web browser's toolbar to have your donations automatically routed to IAEM Scholarships without first visiting the iGive site. It's easy to become an IAEM Scholarship donor by registering at
