OPAF TEAMS WITH ONLINE MERCHANTS

OPAF has made it easier than ever for you to support YOUR official
philanthropy. By simply shopping for your holiday (or ANY day) gifts
through select “online malls,” participating stores have agreed to
donate a portion of your total bill to OPAF at no additional cost to
you! Simply register with one or all of the following online malls,
designate OPAF as the recipient of your charitable contribution, and
they’ll take care of the rest.

Again, there is NO ADDITIONAL COST to you!

To participate, visit any one of the following online malls:

iGive.com (www.igive.com)
iGive.com is an online mall with one important difference: when a
consumer makes an online purchase through www.iGive.com, a percentage of
the consumer’s purchase price is sent to OPAF. This percentage changes
for each vendor, varying from .5% to 9.2%. Some exceptions do apply and
are listed next to the vendor’s donation amount. These donations are
tax-deductible, and joining is free for the consumer.

Buy for Charity (www.buyforcharity.com)
Buy for Charity works exactly like www.iGive.com, but offer even higher
donation percentages. From www.buyforcharity.com, “We find stores with
great products, prices and donations. Up to 35% of your purchase will
go to your charity…and prices are not increased because of your
donation. Helping your cause while you shop costs you nothing!”

MyCause.com (www.mycause.com)
MyCause.com works exactly like www.iGive.com and www.buyforcharity.com.

Shop early, shop often, and help OPAF fulfill its primary mission:
enable individuals with physical disabilities-especially those served by
members of the orthotics and prosthetics community-to enjoy the rewards
of personal achievement, physical fitness, and social interaction.

OPAF (www.opfund.org) is a 501(c)(3) public charity, the official
philanthropy of the U.S. orthotics and prosthetics community. As a
community-focused nonprofit organization, OPAF aims primarily to enable
individuals with physical disabilities-especially those served by
members of the orthotics and prosthetics community-to enjoy the rewards
of personal achievement, physical fitness, and social interaction.
