Online Shopping for Fun and IDF

If you are already an online shopper, or if you plan to shop online this holiday season, please consider visiting one of these Web sites.  These sites will donate a small portion of the purchase price of your order to the Immune Deficiency Foundation.  And it doesnít cost you anything!

These Web sites offer a huge selection of merchandise from well-known companies. The IDF is already listed as an approved charity on these Web sites and all you have to do is designate IDF as your charity. A portion of your purchase price, usually from 1 to 5%, will be sent to us. 

Go to the Web sites, click on the category of items you are looking for, or the store/company where you want to shop.  If you find something you want to purchase, choose the IDF as your designated charity and you will help raise money for the IDF without spending any additional money!  Itís as simple as that.
Each person who registers, as a potential buyer, gets $5 just for signing up and this goes to the charity selected. Signing up is free and easy.  Select IDF as your charity and IDF will receive $5 for each registered person, before any purchases are even made!

Get an additional $5 contribution for IDF by registering at and purchasing something within 45 days of joining. The list of participating companies is huge, over 600 stores and includes stores like Barnes and Noble and the GAP. Please be sure to sign up with and choose IDF as your charity.

Choose IDF as your selected charity, shop at a retailer affiliated with MyCause and up to 12% of your purchases goes to IDF while you pay nothing extra.

Are you an eBay junkie?  IDF is registered with Mission Fish, a program tohelp you support IDF through trading on eBay.  Mission Fish permits sellers to donate a percentage of the profit they make from items they sell on eBay.  Visit to get started.  In addition, buyers may designate IDF as a charity to receive 1.6% of sales by registering first with before buying any items on eBay auctions. eBay sellers can designate all or a portion of their listings to go to IDF.

Shopping online can be a fun and convenient way to shop --- and now it can be a valuable source of income for IDF all year long.  Please spread the word to anyone you know who might shop online. Happy shopping and thanks for your support!
