Make Your Holiday Shopping Count

Did you know that you can raise money to support Jumpstart with your everyday shopping without it costing you a penny?

We created KarmaWell to help organizations like Jumpstart uncover additional donations using the power of online shopping. We know that every penny counts and that causes often need to add to their traditional fundraising methods to help raise the necessary funds to make a positive impact in the communities they serve.

While KarmaWell works with a range of causes, the idea itself was created around education. Our founder is a father of four who quickly found that his various PTAs were constantly petitioning him for more and more funds to support his children’s education. No matter how much he gave, it was never enough and he thought to himself “There has to be a better way for me to help!”

From this experience, KarmaWell was born. KarmaWell was created to help causes like Jumpstart receive donations using the online purchases that we all make on a regular basis. We work with retailers to generate small donations for online shopping, which adds up to big benefits for organizations like Jumpstart. You can earn donations for Jumpstart while you book your holiday travel, purchase gifts for your kids, and stock up on supplies for the house.

With the busy holiday season, we’ve worked to make the process as simple as possible. To get started, download our KarmaWell Shopping App to your computer’s browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox) and shop as you normally would. If you happen to visit a KarmaWell online retailer, just click the “Enable” button in the KarmaWell header and start shopping. A portion of your purchase will go directly toward Jumpstart, helping to provide high-quality early learning opportunities to children in low-income communities. It’s that easy!

During this holiday season, every penny raised is a penny that Jumpstart can use to support its critical mission: to work towards the day that every child in America enters school prepared to succeed.
