From Black Friday to Giving Tuesday, get the most give out of your holiday shopping.
Year after year, once the turkey is carved and the pies are sliced and served, millions of Americans line up to score deals on Black Friday. Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity to #ShopLocal and there are countless hot deals online during Cyber Monday. Our minds shift from giving thanks to giving gifts, and with a never-ending stream of sales, you can easily stockpile your gift stash.
With every unofficial shopping holiday, there are many ways to ensure your purchase not only fits your gift-giving needs, but will also include a donation to benefit local patients and families at not-for-profit Wolfson Children's Hospital. With one of the most worthy charitable organizations located in our own backyard, shoppers on the First Coast can #GiveLocal this season in several ways.
Shop online, #GiveLocal
When Cyber Monday rolls around, be sure to visit AmazonSmile and designate Wolfson Children's Hospital as your charity of choice. That way, you'll be supporting the region's only children's hospital every time you shop on Amazon—every day, not just Cyber Monday—at no cost to you.
When you shop at AmazonSmile, you'll find the exact same prices, selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Wolfson Children's Hospital. You get the deals and you get to give.
You can double down on your local giving efforts by purchasing specially selected toys for our patients through the Wolfson Children's Hospital registry on Amazon. Your registry gift will ship directly to the hospital, and Wolfson Children's Hospital will receive the AmazonSmile Foundation donation as well.
When you give on Tuesday, #GiveLocal
With the days following Thanksgiving focused on finding sales at big box stores, drumming up deals at your local small business, or scoring a save on Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a time to focus on your end-of-year giving and other philanthropic efforts.
As a not-for-profit organization, Wolfson Children's relies on donations to provide lifesaving care. The Hope Starts Here campaign helps us keep our commitment with the support of the local community, allowing individuals, families and organizations to learn more about our care, to connect with our mission, and to support us by making a financial gift if they would like.
Donations to the “Hope Starts Here” campaign benefit infants and children in our community and region, making it possible for the doctors, staff, and specialty care teams at Wolfson Children's Hospital to provide nationally recognized pediatric care close to home.
