Irving, TX, June 08, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB), the local affiliate of both Keep America and Keep Texas Beautiful, is exploring many options to increase its fundraising efforts in 2016. One way to help KIB is by through an activity that we all do on a regular basis: shopping. KIB is registered at both Kroger and Tom Thumb grocery stores, so shoppers who have linked their rewards cards to KIB will be contributing simply by doing their regular shopping. Those who shop online with Amazon can go to the Amazon Smile site, choose KIB as their non-profit organization, and KIB will receive a percentage of each purchase amount, as long as they go through Amazon Smile. KIB has also created a Go Fund Me page with the goal of raising $25,000 to commemorate their 25th anniversary in 2017. There are also a variety of T-shirts for sale at the KIB office.
Two special events are coming up later this year, and KIB will be a part of both. The first is “North Texas Giving Day,” which takes place on September 22. On that day, hundreds of local charities will be receiving donations, with friendly competition involving social media going on all day. On a national level, KIB will be participating in “Giving Tuesday” on November 29. You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and now they have Giving Tuesday, a day to take a break from shopping and focus your attention on giving.
“As a non-profit organization, we have always depended on the generosity of our volunteers in giving of their time in helping us work toward our mission goals,” said KIB Board President Jim Scrivner. “Financial contributions from corporate sponsors or donations by individuals are also essential in contributing to our ongoing programs, and KIB has offered a variety of ways to do this. We hope that everyone who has been influenced by KIB’s presence in the community will consider giving what they can.”
