Shop for SHARED

Part of the “Celebration Gifting” program is to provide up to date information on select “Hot Topics” and identify businesses and organizations that are socially responsible. Many of these businesses are partners in the “ Shop for SHARED ” program where a portion of your purchases are returned by the business to SHARED as a “Thank you” to us.

Please print out this “ Shop for SHARED coupon to take to a participating business. The top portion of the coupon should be presented to the merchant because it verifies that you were referred to the business through our web site. The lower portion of the coupon should be returned to us with information about your purchase to confirm the transaction.  If it is easier for you, please send us an email with the same information as is found on the coupon.
