SPECIAL OLYMPICS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT TORCH RUN PARTNER WITH IMYNE FOR HOLIDAY SHOPPING WITH AUTOMATIC DONATIONS AND CASH BACK
New web-based platform helps supporters fundraise for Special Olympics
4 December 2014 – Special Olympics has just confirmed its partnership with iMyne, a new online community fundraising platform that is making it easier for charitable organizations to exponentially grow their donation base.
With 100s of top retailers like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Target, Sears, The Home Depot, Gap, Best Buy, Saks and Zappos as retail partners, iMyne shares the affiliate commissions they receive with the consumer and their charity of choice, automatically and free of charge.
iMyne has announced a holiday promotion that will run from Black Friday through Christmas Eve, featuring up to 40% cash back on top retailers’ sites.
“We are excited to partner with iMyne to offer our supporters and Law Enforcement Torch Run community an easy new way to give back to Special Olympics,” said Peter Wheeler, Chief of Strategic Properties, Special Olympics. “It’s easy to sign up with iMyne, choose Special Olympics as the charity of choice and doing something that comes naturally- shopping online at 100s of top retailers.”
HOW IMYNE WORKS: SHOP EARN.GIVE
Online shoppers sign-up for a free iMyne membership, pick their favorite charitable cause and download an iMyne button for their web browser. iMyne currently works with Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers, and is also accessible via smartphones and tablets. No personal information is stored by iMyne beyond the consumer’s basic account information.
Whenever iMyne shoppers are on a participating retailer site (such as Target, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Nike, Staples, The Home Depot, Neiman Marcus and hundreds more), a button pops up alerting the shopper to potential iMyne earnings that typically range from 2-5 percent of the total transaction.
With every purchase, money is placed in the consumer’s iMyne account and donations are automatically made to the shopper’s selected charitable organization. The shopper can then cash out their earnings or easily give those earnings to their selected charity.
Each iMyne member also has a special referral link to share with family and friends that connects each person’s account, creating an online community that maximizes earnings for all members and their selected causes.
