6 Ways to Give Without Writing a Check! By February 8, 2019 6 Ways to Give Without Writing a Check! “The earth is what we all have in common.” — Wendell Berry During this time of year, many worthy nonprofits may be on your list to support with a donation – and I hope NY/NJ Baykeeper is one of them! – but have you ever wondered if your favorite charity could benefit from the things you do almost every day? Here are seven ways you can give to NY/NJ Baykeeper without writing a check. 1.) Have a Drink with Us! With every purchase of Proud Pour’s Oyster Wine in New Jersey, 100 oysters are restored to the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary. To find out where to buy in your area click here. 2.) Shop with a Smile! Using Amazon to shop this season? Start your shopping trip at www.smile.amazon.com and choose Raritan Baykeeper, Inc. (this is our official name). .5% of your purchases will be donated back to NY/NJ Baykeeper. 3.) Shop some more! Love shopping a Tobi? We are now part of Tobi Cares! Designate NY/NJ Baykeeper as your charity of choice and 1% of your purchases will go back to protecting, preserving, and restoring the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary. 4.) Pamper your Beard! If you have a bearded friend in your life, looking to support a local business, AND want to give back to charity then visit Calabrese’s Barber Shop, 33 West Front Street, Keyport, New Jersey 07735 and purchase their Striper Beard Oil. $1.00 from every bottle purchased will be donated to NY-NJ Baykeeper. 5.) Not going anywhere? Donate your miles! Most airline and credit card reward points/miles and be converted into a donation to the charity of your choice. Take a look, if your points are about to expire or you have a few extra, please consider making NY/NJ Baykeeper your beneficiary. Capital One makes the process extremely easy. 6.) Drink some more! Did you know that Finlandia vodka gives 1% of its proceeds to clean water causes? Finlandia has been a great supporter of the Restoration Program – so have a Cranberry Gimlet and enjoy the season knowing your are helping to support NY/NJ Baykeeper’s reef in the Bronx River. Have a happy holiday season!
