We want to announce the launch of Making the Grade’s #GivingTuesday initiative: Please Choose Us! This giving season is an incredibly important period for our organization. We are thrilled to have so many exciting projects just waiting to take shape.
We need your help though! #GivingTuesday is a great opportunity to maximize your gifts. We will all be doing much of our holiday shopping online this year... let us make it count!
We know that everyone is getting ready for the holiday season. Here are a few shopping opportunities that will fill our bank account without costing you, the shopper, any additional money!
Shop for gifts at smile.amazon.com/ch/46-3448487 to generate donations for Making the Grade-Hope for African Youth. This opportunity is available all year and once you set us as your charity, you can just shop knowing that every penny you spend, will benefit our students as well!

Shop online and get a percentage for MTG by going through any listed store on their platform. According to IGive’s website, they have given $9,937,253.37 to charities to date. Choose Making the Grade: Hope for African Youth as your charity.
The way this works is you go to the igive or goodshop website. These sites act as a portal into your favorite online stores. You are charged no additional money for anything, same websites and prices. YOU shop and THEY send us money!
