You can make your dreams a reality.

I was fortunate enough to attend two Democratic National Conventions as a blogger and party delegate thanks to the generous donations from my family, friends and readers.

I payed it forward and helped fund my cousin’s first trip abroad when she went with her university to Turkey.

Others are raising money for film productions, start-ups and more.

How to give and get with meaning and savvy.

I love giving and receiving gifts. I like to give the gift that is so well suited, totally defines their personality, brings true joy, the recipient can’t believe I actually nailed it!

But I also need to be smart with money. Who doesn’t? I discovered eBates in 2006 and haven’t looked back. When you shop online using eBates you get a cash rebate. No joke.

Stores How to give and get with meaning and savvy.

And the stores offering rebates are actually stores where you want to buy. You trust them, you know they will deliver and provide quality items.

“Well who is going to remember to go to eBates before shopping online”, you grumble. Well I tell you, you don’t have to. Install the web browser button and you will be notified if your shopping qualifies for a rebate. Magic.

“I want to shop using my iPad or iPhone”, you say. Well you can. So no excuses for not getting cash back when you shop for others and dare I say, shop for yourself.
