Non-Profit Partner Newsletter
- September 2015  -

  
Whether you have young ones heading off to school or not, September is a time for fresh beginnings and fresh focus. It's also the perfect time to remind your supporters to support you every time they shop for fall and school supplies, clothing, technology, travel, and much more. Remember, every purchase via ShopandShare.ca = an automatic, free donation to your organization. The more people you tell, the more money you're likely to earn.
 
Here's what you'll find in this month's newsletter:
  • New 'Quick Links'
  • Have you received your Staples Discount Card?
  • Win a Walmart Gift Card!
  • Featured Non-Profit for September
  • September Awareness Days

As things ramp up again this month, we want to help you reach your goals faster. So please tell us if there are any specific items your organization is raising money for, and send us your videos, stories, event information, etc - we'd love to help spread the word for you! 
 
If the contact person in your organization has changed, please email or call us at 
support@shopandshare.ca or 1-888-466-2499 so we can update our records. 

As always, we're here to help with whatever you need, so
please contact us.  You and your supporters can also keep in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.
 
New 'Quick Links'

We're excited to announce new 'Quick Links' in our coupon newsletters. This new feature allows supporters to get to their chosen non-profit's websites in one click, without having to stop and log in to  ShopandShare.ca first.

An easier experience for your supporters = more donation cheques for you.
 

Here's an example of our new 'Quick Links'. Give it a try now to see how it works.


Wondering what else is new, having technical issues with our links, or have some feedback on how we're doing? Please let us know: 1-888-466-2499 or support@shopandshare.ca. 
 
Have you received your Staples Copy & Print Discount Card?

 

In case you missed the announcement, we have a new partnership with Staples Copy & Print that will allow you to save 20% off of all your printing, copying and promotional material needs
 
If you have NOT yet received your blue Discount Card, please email support@shopandshare.ca or call us at 1-888-466-2499 and we'll arrange to get another sent to you.  In the meantime, you're welcome to use our card number when you place your Staples Copy & Print order: 8160453570. 

We've also recently added  Staples.ca to our website, so you and your supporters can earn donations when purchasing office supplies, too!  
 
Win a Walmart Gift Card!

We're giving away Walmart Gift Cards all this week! Simply watch for our Question of the Day on Facebook and give us your answers. You can also earn extra entries for sharing the post with your friends and/or on your non-profit's Facebook page.
