Here are some fun and creative ways you can support TSWGO and be awesome in the world.
We are always updating and adding more ways to get involved, so be sure to check back for more ideas!
Remember your donation is tax deductible too!
Money isn't the only way to help benefit TSWGO. Donating your time is also an awesome way to give. It can also provide perks like making friends, networking and it helps reduce stress! Don’t have a lot of free time? Small blocks could be more helpful than you know!
Check our Event Calendar to see what opportunities we have.
Try reaching out to your favorite charities, hospitals, shelters and churches. Even if one place doesn’t have volunteer opportunities at the time, they are sure to know someone who does, further expanding your donation’s reach!
Ready, Set, Bake!
Baking is extra sweet when you couple it with charity, especially when you have a group of people doing it. Invite friends over and have fun while making treats for your bake sale and donate the profits. Don’t forget about those with allergies and Vegans too!
Unsure of where to host your bake sale? Check with your local church, grocery store, and schools. Most are very accommodating and can help spread the word too!
Yard and Garage sales are a fun way to clear out and tidy your home/space in Spring. Once your unwanted items have found a new home, donate the profits to families fighting childhood cancer, and enjoy your new clean space!
You can advertise your sale in the local paper, online forums, coffee shops, churches and stores. Don’t forget to include that sales will go to charity!
Tab for a Cause
Raise money for charity with every tab you open in Chrome! Just by surfing the web, you can build libraries, plant trees, send emergency aid, give clean water, and more. PLUS you choose your favorite charity to support!
Tab for a Cause transforms your "new tab" page. Each time you open a tab, you will be greeted with an incredible new tab page filled with custom widgets, pictures, and a couple banner ads. They collect ad revenue from the page and use it to donate to the cause you are supporting! People like you have raised thousands of dollars for charity just by surfing the web.
Go Shopping with AmazonSmile
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.

If you work or attend a place that requires a specific dress code you know how exciting a Casual Friday would be.
Discuss with your school/work about offering a casual day or even a fancy day for a small donation from participants.
$1.00-$5.00+ per participant can quickly add up to a wonderful donation to help children and their families fighting childhood cancer.
Remember, no amount is too small, when we come together everyone wins.
Take a group photo to submit with your donation so we can feature and thank you for your awesome work.

Secret Charity Santa/White Elephant/Holiday Shopping
Rather than purchasing items in your Secret Santa/White Elephant exchange, talk about supporting your TSWGO and Esther’s Mission with a group donation.
Your support, especially during the Holiday Season, helps provides families fighting childhood cancer with Grants so they can focus on each other instead of the financial strain of childhood cancer.
Looking for a gift for that hard to buy for person?

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since 2012, people from all over the world have given over $1 Billion to causes on #GivingTuesday. #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and check our Event Calendar for more #GivingTuesday information.
Often some awesome people like Benevity will donate money per-tweet, so be sure you follow us!
Throwing an office/work/school party is another awesome way encourage everyone to contribute to TSWGO. You can offer a donation bin for attendees and encourage your employer to match your contributions.
Try having a themed party with a “fun-d off” challenging different teams to raise more than the other.
Our Favorite Themes:
Harry Potter- Create a donation hats representing each Hogwarts House and go head to head with fun challenges!
Battle of the bands- Before your party create donation buckets for your favorite bands or songs, play in order of earned donation ranking to create the ultimate playlist!
Pirates!- Dress up as pirates (of course!) and create donation treasure chests for different staff that you want to walk the plank. Watch the winner plunge into a pool or dunk tank!
