There are several very easy ways to support the charities you love without spending any extra money. Consider these effortless ways to give back to the charities you love:

1. Clip Box Tops for Education when you purchase qualifying products. Many popular brands including Hefty, Betty Crocker, General Mills, and Ziploc participate in this program. Each Box Top you clip is worth 10 cents to your favorite local school, and they add up fast.

2. If you already shop on, sign up for AmazonSmile. Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of every Prime eligible purchase you make to a charity of your choice when you begin your shopping at

3. Link your various shopping rewards cards to your favorite charity. Many grocery stores, both large and small, will allow customers to connect their loyalty cards to their favorite charity, causing a small percentage of each purchase to be donated. Kroger stores and more than 20 regional grocers owned by Kroger participate in charitable programs like this.
