6 Ways to Give Without Writing a Check!

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.
BONUS!
7.) Go out to Dinner!
Eat at Russell & Bette’s (in the old What’s Your Beef Location), 21 West River Road, Rumson, New Jersey 07760 on Thursday, December 22nd and 10% of your bill will go back to NY/NJ Baykeeper. We hope to see you there!
