Today is Giving Tuesday- the day when we are challenged to give and share with those locally and worldwide who could use a little help. The holidays are a great time to give to non-profit organizations that not only pull at our heartstrings, but are visionaries in our minds as well.
At Wheel Media, one of our favorite local Sacramento charities is the Sutter Medical Center Foundation. Charitable donations to the foundation directly fund health care services that keep Sacramento residents alive and healthy. One hundred percent of foundation funds are used to comfort, support and heal the community through services at Sutter Medical Center.
One of the easiest ways to donate to Sutter Medical Center Foundation is to make a purchase using GoodShop. GoodShop has partnered with large and small retailers including Target, Amazon, Best Buy, and companies like Priceline.com and Living Social to allow shopping rewards to be donated to the charity of buyers’ choosing. The GoodShop website lets you choose your cause from an extensive list of nonprofits operating in various sectors. To date, GoodShop has raised over $11 Million for causes, and this Giving Tuesday is another great opportunity to do more good with your purchases.
There are countless ways to give back to your community today and every day, and whether you are able to give your time and expertise to local youth or causes, or simply designate a donation to Sutter Medical Center Foundation on your GoodShop account, your business-as-usual truly can make an impact on this Giving Tuesday.
