How to Support Soulforce and (Barely) Lift a Finger

First and foremost, a Happy Thanksgiving to all and Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate the Jewish Festival of Lights.

We know the end of year is busy for all kinds of reasons–maybe you celebrate a certain holiday, maybe< you travel, maybe you are scrambling to finish up a project before the New Year.

If you have a few extra moments, there are two ways you can be a friend to Soulforce today.The first is for Internet shoppers who use Amazon and want to give back to Soulforce while making the same purchases you had already planned. Amazon, the largest online retailer, has just launched Amazon Smile to benefit the charity of your choice.

 

Just go to http://smile.amazon.com/. All you have to do is tell them you want your purchases to benefit Soulforce. We are listed under “Soulforce, Inc.” located in Abilene, TX, and once you’re signed up, we will receive a donation of .05% of the purchase price of everything you buy.

Same products, same prices, everything automated. You won’t notice any difference other than our beaming gratitude.

The second way to be a friend to Soulforce today is to help us get noticed by Omaze, a new non-profit that raffles off incredible experiences like a doubles match with Andre Agassi and Stefi Graf, or hanging out the with the cast of your favorite TV show.

Each Omaze adventure is like a raffle attached to a charitable organization. Your donation to that organization acts as your entry into the contest.Soulforce is not yet a charity recognized by Omaze, but we’d like to be! So take a minute and check out the Omaze Web site. Then follow the instructions to let Omaze know who we are, and maybe one day soon, we’ll be offering lunch with Jane Lynch or Ellen as a Soulforce fundraiser!

It’s easy to give us a shout:

   1. Visit the Omaze website list of charities here .
   2. Scroll to the bottom of the list where you can mention who you want to see Omaze benefit.
   3. Type in “Soulforce who works to end the political and religious oppression of LGBTQ people”That’s it!

So many asks come at this time of year, and we want to be sure that there are action steps for everyone at any level of resources, time, and access. We thank you for taking the time to weave us into your everyday shopping and charitable activities.

With gratitude,

The Soulforce Team
