Project Little Spark…greetings from the Caribbean

IMG_3831Greetings from St. Croix, USVI!

Our recent move to St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands (USVI) rendered us “radio silent” for the last few weeks but all communications are now back online!  We’re touching base with a few behind-the-scenes updates…

  • We recently submitted a progress report about our project’s work to date to The Pollination Project and are happy to report it was approved!  We are grateful that we received the second installment payment to support the growth of Project Little Spark as a non-profit organization.
  • Project Little Spark received a check for $84.07 from our supporters who changed their shopping for good at iGive.  THANK YOU!!  Please consider supporting Project Little Spark when you shop online after downloading the iGive button.  Every dollar helps offset the cost of shipping supplies to partner schools  After you download the button, be sure to also bookmark http://www.igive.com/amazon in your browser to make shopping at Amazon.com easy.
What is iGive?  It’s a free service to causes and members. Since 1997, iGive has grown to 350,000+ members supporting 50,000+ causes and raised almost $8Million!
iGive really is as simple as it sounds.
iGive members can generate donations by shopping at any of our 1,500+ Stores.
There are no costs, obligations, nor any hidden fees.
You don’t need to enter any codes, notify the store, or iGive. It’s all automatic!
Shopping via iGive is essentially a store rebate program where iGive members have the opportunity to donate their rebate to their chosen cause.  When iGive members shop via our special links, an “iGive Cookie” is assigned to your browser. This tells the store, “Here is an iGive Member” using a meaningless member ID number. The store reports back with this number and the amounts for the donation to your cause. iGive never have access to any payment information.
Once you have downloaded the iGive Button:
You should see the tiny iGive Button that looks like a seed in your browser.
Next, visit any iGive store, such as QVC:
You will see the “iGive On” Button the lower right corner.
This means you are good to go! Shop as you normally would.
Some stores require a confirming action that you want to donate.  If you see a large red iGive drop down telling you that you need to confirm your donation, please click it to continue.  When you successfully link to a store via iGive.com, your visit will be immediately posted at http://www.iGive.com/html/storevisits.cfm and visible in the “You Recently Visited” header box on the iGive.com site (you may have to refresh the page).
Click on the “iGive On” Button for available live feed of coupons and to review any exceptions.
Can I use iGive to support Project Little Spark on Amazon?  YES

Use the Amazon link in your iGive Button drop-down:

  • Supplies are being collected in Chicago for our next shipment to our partner school in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  We are also happy to report we’ve established a new relationship with a school in the USVI and they have already provided school supplies to include in the next shipment.  Sparking on across the sea!
