With eBay Giving Works Program you can sell an item on eBay and donate 10 – 100% of the total sale to our affiliate.

Just choose eBay Giving Works when you go to list an item, you can then choose our name, Lupus Alliance of LIQ  from the list of charitable organizations, and then input the rest of your listing as always. There is a small fee to sell something under the eBay Giving Works Program, however, eBay gives priority ranking to Giving Works sellers, as well as other perks. Please think of us the next time you are selling an item on eBay. It is quick, easy and helps us to continue to provide the best services to our members. We are hoping that eBay Giving Works will be one of our most popular and profitable fundraising efforts. Click here to learn more and sign up for free.

NEW! Give at Checkout on eBay. Now if you are a buyer and not a seller on eBay you can donate too! Give at checkout allows you to donate $1.00 to the Lupus Alliance of LI/Q whenever you purchase an item on eBay through PayPal. To find out more on how this works, please click here. 

iGive 

Every day while we spend the day frantically running from work to school to shopping and errands, someone will spend their day being diagnosed with lupus and their life will never be the same. The Lupus Alliance of LI/Q has found a way to help those living with lupus, without asking for donations from you by joining forces with iGive.com.

iGive.com is a shopping website that allows users to shop at their favorite stores online while a percentage of every purchase is given to the Lupus Alliance of LI/Q. Whenever you purchase everyday items at the mall at iGive, up to 26% of every purchase is donated to us!

At iGive you get free membership, access to over 500 brand-name merchants like Barnes & Noble, Target, Land’s End, Dell, Office Max, Sharper Image, and Macy`s, super savings and special deals every day, and of course free donations to the Lupus Alliance. What could be better than raising money for us while you shop online for everyday items you shop for anyway?
Then download the igive shopping window on as many computers as you wish and start shopping. As you visit stores online that are igive members, an igive window will pop up to remind you that a percentage of the transaction will go to the Lupus Alliance. You don’t have to do anything else, just shop as usual, and igive will do the rest. You can even visit the igive shopping mall web site to receive special member discounts and coupons to your favorite stores as well.

The best part about igive.com is that you dont have to spend any more than you already do on your online shopping. You make a donation without hurting your wallet, and someone with lupus gets the much needed help they need!

Refer a friend We will receive $1.00 for every friend you recommend to iGive, so pass on the good news to all your friends and family, by sending out tell-a-friend emails through iGive, or do it yourself with, our special tell a friend link.

iGive guarantees no Spam, and total member privacy and many of your shopping contributions can be tax deductible, see the iGive homepage for more details. Sign up your office to shop at iGive`s long list of stores that offer office supplies, including Staples, Quill and more. Every time your office needs to stock up on supplies you could be helping someone with lupus.

Create your own fundraiser

If you would like to raise money to help someone with lupus, the Lupus Alliance of LIQ has some ideas for you! Cant make our walk? Other events not your style or too far away? That`s ok, you can still help by running your own fundraiser right on the Internet.

Visit our our fundraising webpage and click on the get started button. Once there you can choose a sporting event, in memory page, personal occasion or other and then create your own fundraising page that you can send to friends, family, co-workers, social networking pals and more.

You can turn anything into a reason to fundraise for us including:

  • In lieu of Wedding Presents
  • For an anniversary
  • For a birthday
  • Bar Mitzvah
  • Confirmation
  • Graduation
  • Retirement
  • In Memory of a Loved one

You can also run your own event, such as asking people to sponsor you on a personal run or walk for lupus, or perhaps something unusual like for quitting smoking, vowing to not have a cigarette every day someone donates to your page!

You could make a bet with a friend to see who can raise the most money in a certain amount of time, both making fundraising webpages and using them to keep people up to date on who is winning, and what they will win from the bet.

Personal Internet fundraising has become very popular and people are finding many new and interesting ways to get their friends and family involved and donating to their favorite cause. For instance one couple opened a fundraising webpage and asked people to contribute at least $5.00 to their favorite cause and in exchange for that, the person who donated was allowed to give one suggestion on what they should name their baby. The name with the most votes after a nine month period won, and all the money collected went to the parents favorite charity.

Let us know if you decide to run a personal fundraiser for us. We will be happy to assist you in promoting your page by mentioning it in our newsletters and Twitter posts, and sometimes we will even publicize if for you in a PSA.

No idea is too crazy, think outside the box, have fun and help someone with lupus all at the same time. Visit our fundraising page to get started today on your own fundraiser by clicking here.

 

Occasion/Favor Cards

photo-3In the past, people have purchased party favors for a special occasion such as a wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, graduation, anniversary party, christening or Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. In lieu of traditional favors many now honor their guests by making a monetary donation to the Lupus Alliance of Long Island/Queens. If you are interested in ordering the individual cards or tent cards, please contact the office directly by calling 516-783-3370 or e-mailing us at info@lupusliqueens.org.

We will provide you with a printed donation card to give to your guests. The cards contain your name, date of the occasion, and the Lupus Alliance of  Long Island/Queens information. The minimum order is 50 cards and must be ordered at least 2 weeks in advance.

We must ask for a minimum donation to cover costs of printing, while still earning money to support lupus research. Any amount over the minimum is, of course, gratefully accepted and appreciated.
