As the ongoing pandemic increases the financial burden of individuals and businesses alike, many families have been forced to cut back on giving to causes they cherish. However, we still need your support to keep alive Movieguide®’s mission. Fortunately, some major businesses want to work with you to give to nonprofits like us. Try these two no-hassle ways to give to Movieguide® today!
The first way to donate is through Microsoft’s newest Bing browser extension. In March, Microsoft announced the arrival of a new Bing feature called “Give with Bing.” The extension rewards users’ everyday searches through the Bing browser with points. Users can then donate to a nonprofit or charity of their choice.
“With everything that’s happening these days, one thing that I am trying to keep in mind and model for my kids is how small things can make a big difference…” Microsoft’s Liat Ben-Zur wrote. “[It’s] a new way to help you to support the causes you care about. It’s a simple thing but it has the potential for real impact.”
Specifically, when a user decides to search using Bing, they will receive reward points as part of the Microsoft Rewards program. After turning on Bing’s “Give Mode,” users may pick the organization or cause to which they want to support and donate.
“There is no cost to you, just search with Bing. With more than 1 million nonprofits to choose from, you can support a cause that you really care about,” Ben-Zur said.
The second way you can support Movieguide® with no extra cost is through Amazon’s AmazonSmile. After a user selects Movieguide® as their desired organization for donations, AmazonSmile will give Moveiguide® a percentage of your standard purchase with no additional cost from the user.
“There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers,” Amazon said. “The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
“For eligible purchases through AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization,” the document continues.
According to Amazon: “Customers can make direct donations and arrange for donated products to be delivered to charitable organizations through the AmazonSmile Charity Lists program. That program is the only AmazonSmile program that enables customers to make donations to charities at this time. Customers who support their selected charitable organization by shopping AmazonSmile do not make direct donations.”
Movieguide® is dedicated to our mission to redeem the values of the entertainment industry, according to biblical principles, by influencing industry executives and artists. We are grateful for those who support us and who decide to donate. With “Give with Bing” and “Amazon Smile,” you have the opportunity to help us make an impact without spending a dime!
