The Bubel Aiken Foundation Fundraisers - 3 A Day To Remember - Part I

I know we all get caught up in the excitement of upcoming tours, AI2 Rewind (with Clay narrating!!), Clay's upcoming appearance on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, and all those gorgeous pictures of Clay at various Clay sites.

But let's not lose sight of one of the most important things we can do for Clay and his foundation, The Bubel Aiken Foundation...and that is donate whatever we can to the various fundraisers that are going on regularly in Claynation. In so doing, we are ultimately helping the children with special needs as BAF works to get them included in summer camps and various other activities with their typical peers. This is something that is very close to Clay's heart. He has even said before that he prefers that instead of giving him a gift, we donate to BAF. We've done so on his birthday, for Christmas, and on many other special occasions. But the day-in day-out ever going on fundraisers kind of get lost in the mix.

For the next few days, CDD will list these fundraisers, three per day, that you can take part in, some so easy that it literally takes a matter of seconds to take part in. Here are the first three:

Goodsearch - Each search means a penny for TBAF and those pennies add up quickly. Its free to search and takes just a few seconds. Just follow instructions carefully.

Goodsearch URL:
Copy URL and paste in your Browser.

Underneath the gray "Who Do You GoodSearch For", write "The Bubel Aiken Foundation", (NEVER PUT JUST BAF)Click "Verify". Before you search, always look at the "My Charity" box at the top of your screen to see that it says Bubel Aiken Foundation. Then put your search subject in Goodsearch Search Box.

You can put a Goodsearch toolbar at the top of your screen for convenience, or you can make Goodsearch your Home Page.

Goodshop - This one is so easy. Go to the Goodshop page. Make certain the "Who Do You Goodsearch For" section at the top says "The Bubel Aiken Foundation" (write it in if it doesn't). Then click on whichever company you wish to shop with. The most popular companies are on this home page, but you can click on the drop down box above those company names and there are a multitude of store categories to choose from. Now you do what you love to do...SHOP!!! A percentage of your total will go to BAF.

Empties4Cash - Printer Cartridge Fundraiser - Turn your trash into cash. When you have an empty printer cartridge, don't throw it away. Instead email and request a free prepaid carton or mailer. They sent me about 25 envelopes, so I now have enough to last me for several mailings. All money raised, up to $4 per cartridge, will be sent monthly to BAF. Cartridges with a print head that qualify are Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Compaq, Canon, Dell, Brother, and Apple. Epson cartridges do not qualify. Ask your friends, family, and co-workers for cartridges. If you throw them away, you're throwing away money!

All of these fundraisers can be found at The Bubel Aiken Market Place site . Try to support as many of these as you can. These first three in this article cost you nothing more than your time. And the more people who participate, the more those pennies, those percentages, those cartridges, add up! Now see how easy it is to help out BAF by participating in fundraisers to raise money for their camps!! The "100 For 1 Million Challenge" needs out help and support!

Hi, I'm glad you posted these sites so everybody can help Clay out. Not everybody have the funds all of the time to donated something to Clay foundation so its good now that everybody can donated something towards it now.
