With the cancellation of our two biggest fundraisers last year and the uncertainty surrounding this year’s events, alternative fundraising efforts are now more important than ever. Please remember that you can help the Wilkinson School Community Council support programming and items like technology in the classroom, Forest of Reading books, Grade 6 graduation and yearbooks, and this year’s purchase of a storage shed for our OPAL program just by clicking on our referral links before you buy online.
Whether you’re taking advantage of seasonal sales, doing holiday shopping or just stocking up on basics all year round, your purchases can earn the school a referral commission.
We’ve joined the referral programs for Oliver’s Labels, Mabel’s Labels, and FlipGive, which offers the school cash back on purchases (including gift cards) made through over 100 retailers such as Apple, Indigo, well.ca, Sport Check and Old Navy. We also have an online CafePress store for Wilkinson merchandise and as an Amazon.ca Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases. These programs don’t cost anything extra, and if you’re shopping anyway, why not earn money for the school while you do?
When you shop through these sites, make sure to go through our links first! The links (and instructions on how to use them) can be found through the Shopping Fundraisers link on our homepage or at the bottom of our Get Involved Page.
We know that remembering to use the links is easier said than done, so we’ve created cutouts to help you. Simply print out this sheet, cut along the dotted lines and keep these cards near the devices in your home and office. The next time you shop, you’ll see the cards and be reminded to visit our website first.
Feel free to pass the links on to family and friends. Every little bit helps!
Thanks for your support!
