From our ASAP family to yours, we hope you had a safe, happy & healthy Thanksgiving — even if it looked a little different this year. As we enter this season of giving, ASAP would like to express our sincerest gratitude to the many partners, volunteers and supporters who share our passion and commitment to providing Philadelphia youth with opportunities to do what they love afterschool– even during these uncommonly challenging times.
But of all the changes in 2020, one thing hasn’t changed:
Sharing gifts with your loved ones during the holiday season.
But what if this year instead of ribbons and bows, your gifts came dressed with a smile?
This holiday season, you can support Philadelphia children through virtual after school programs while you shop Black Friday, Cyber Monday and all December long! All donations made to ASAP throughout this season will be receipted with a card to pair with your loved ones’ gifts, sharing the impact your donation made this year: an opportunity for our city’s young people to discover new worlds, new talents and new friends, even when we are apart.
Here’s how you can support while you shop:
You shop, Amazon gives. For every purchase made on AmazonSmile, Amazon donates .5% to ASAP! Same great prices & deals, with no additional cost to you OR ASAP! Visit: www.smile.amazon.com and select After School Activities Partnerships as your charity to support.
Checkout Donations like Ebay!
Other major online retailers and auction-style sites have put together similar programs to AmazonSmile to support nonprofits while you checkout! Since places like eBay add your donation onto your bill, you are free to use PayPal if you prefer!
PayPal Giving Fund
If you donate to a verified charity like ASAP using the PayPal Giving Fund, PayPal covers all transaction costs ensuring that 100% of each gift made goes straight to the cause! Organizations will typically receive PayPal Giving Fund donations within 15 to 45 days after you receive your donation receipt (provided by PayPal).
On behalf of ASAP we thank you in advance for all of your support this holiday season! We continue to look forward to sharing more stories about our students and the positive impact that after school programs still have on the community this December!
