I just want to share how easy it is to make a difference no matter what your budget is! I was introduced to Hip2Save about a year ago and ever since then me, my best friend and my mom are HOOKED! In just a year I have collected soooo many freebies and deals, it’s insane!
When Hurricane Sandy hit, I really wanted to help the people who are without power, food and toiletries. They lost everything in the hurricane, but I felt so powerless. I’m a senior in college with no job. Then it hit me, I may be broke but I have TONS of stuff that people really need! So me, my best friend and my mom decided to donate all of our stock pile to Hurricane Sandy victims.
I also had won a $10 Amazon gift card from the Panel App Sweepstakes (it’s an app on the phone and you redeem points you get for entries in drawings). So with this I decided to use Amazon to ship directly to shelters in the New York and New Jersey area. It’s so easy to donate with Amazon! You simply put the address of a shelter and send them things they need like toilet paper, Chapstick, ANYTHING!
Do you have a funny, “Hip”, or unique photo to share?! Email us at happyfriday@hip2save(dot)com. Every Friday, I will post one photo, submitted by you and/or another Hip2Save reader, that gives us a glimpse into your frugal lifestyle or simply makes us smile. If your photo is published on Hip2Save, we’ll email you a $10 Amazon e-card!
