There are several ways to support RSRT while you’re doing your holiday shopping. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and is an easy way to give back. The percentage of each purchase that goes to RSRT tends to be quite small (usually .5% to 5%). So while it’s not a substitute for making your own contribution, every dollar counts and if you’re shopping anyway you might as well support the research!

Donate your Rewards
Do you have airline miles that are about to expire? Are you switching credit cards and have unused credit card reward points on your old card? Instead of letting your reward points go to waste, make a difference and donate them to charity.
Many credit card companies make it easy for you to donate your credit card reward points and miles to charity. You simply log into your account and click on the “Redeem Rewards” link and then donate your unused points the same way you redeem them for cash or merchandise. You can also call your credit card issuer and donate by phone.
