For those of us who are still doing our holiday shopping, here are some options that we might want to consider. is a website that sells gift cards to support charities (http://www.justgive .org/). You can order a gift card and the recipient will then go to their website and choose from a selection of charities, one of which is FPWR. What a wonderful way to honor someone on a special occasion!

2. FPWR Online Buying Options

By going to https://www. civicrm/contribu te/transact? reset=1&id=1, you can select from several companies that donate a portion of their sales to FPWR.

(One note about… If you registered with them before, you know that in order to receive the donation from the companies they represent, you had to sign into iGive's website first and shop from there. This is no longer the case. They have it set up now so whenever you sign into a website that participates in iGive, you are automatically notified of the percentage that will be donated and that donation is made automatically. You don't have to do anything extra. This makes it easier to use iGive. Just an FYI…)

3. Donations

If you would like to make a donation to FPWR as a gift to someone, it is easy to do that online. https://www. civicrm/contribu te/transact? reset=1&id=1 You will receive an immediate thank you email and I will also be glad to send you an acknowledgement letter or a certificate that you can give to the person being honored. This option is available any time for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc. Just let me know at rachel.fpwr@ and I'll help you put that together.

So, save yourself some shoe leather and wrapping paper, and support PWS research through FPWR at the same time. Happy Shopping!
