3 Great Online Ways to Give!
Whenever you’re online, you have the amazing ability raise funds for the Mary Ryder Home, by donating, spreading the word and asking others to donate too!
Amazon.com is one of the biggest online retailers, but did you know they are also a donation hot spot? AmazonSmile, operated by the Amazon company, is an online retailer with the same products, prices and Amazon Prime features as Amazon.com. The only difference is that when you shop at smile.amazon.com, 0.5% of the purchase price (of eligible products) will be donated to a charity of your choice – and you can choose Mary Ryder Home!
How to get started: The first step is to visit www.smile.amazon.com, and save it as one of your favorite bookmarks (replacing www.amazon.com). Sign in using your regular Amazon information. Next, select Mary Ryder Home as your charity of choice. Finally, start shopping! Everytime you look to purchase something from Amazon, make sure you’re going to smile.amazon.com! Only purchases made at smile.amazon.com are eligible for charitable donations.
Do you have a birthday coming up but don’t want any gifts? Do you feel the need to give back to your local community?

Go Fund Me:
Make a difference in someone’s life – or 60 someone’s lives! Mary Ryder Home is on www.GoFundMe.com. That’s right we currently have our own fundraising campaign, “Wishing For A Washer.” The Mary Ryder Home is over 20 years old and is in need of updates! One update is a need for a new industrial grade dishwasher and steamer. All funds raised will go to the purchase and instillation of a new Blakeslee Dishwasher & Steamer, estimated cost of $20,000. Together we can update our dishwasher in time for the upcoming holidays’ feasting and festivities!
How to get started: Visit our campaign at www.gofundme.org/wishing-for-a-washer. Our campaign can also be searched for under the “Charity” category. On the right side of our campaign page you will find a “Donate Now” button and a “Share on Facebook” button. Click on either (or BOTH) buttons and help our lovely ladies!
