Donors are essential members of the American Red Cross family, ensuring that we can provide relief through every imaginable disaster. During the recent holiday season, a number of these loyal donors made year-end gifts that were matched by one of the Red Cross's valued corporate partners.
Goodshop.com, an online shopping site that shares a percentage of its sales with nonprofits, matched every donation — up to a total of $25,000 — that came from a Red Cross donor whose 2016 year-end gift was larger than the donor's prior-year gift.
"Thanks to the generosity of Goodshop, these gifts were not only matched, but their impact in support of the people we help was doubled," says Mollie Johnson, corporate partnerships officer in the Red Cross's San Francisco office.
Even though the holidays are over, people can still support the Red Cross through every purchase they make on the Goodshop web site. Whether you're looking to support disaster relief or to make sure everyone has access to lifesaving blood, joining the American Red Cross's Goodshop Give campaign is easy. Just go to Goodshop Give to select the Red Cross campaign. Whenever you or another Red Cross supporter use one of Goodshop's thousands of deals and coupons, a portion of your purchase will go towards the Red Cross mission.
Offering over 500,000 deals and coupons, Goodshop has saved shoppers $100 million while raising approximately $12 million for over 100,000 nonprofits, schools, and other causes.
