Lincoln School PTA has partnered with Benefit as a fundraising solution. It is free to members and free to Lincoln School PTA. Benefit is a free iPhone or Android phone app that can be used to pay for your everyday purchases such as groceries, clothes, home goods, and more. You can pay on site at the store or online. A portion of your purchase, up to 20%, goes directly back to Lincoln School PTA. Retailers include Lowe's, Amazon, Target, Starbucks, and many more! For instance, buy $300 worth of golf equipment at Callaway online, and $60 goes back to our school!! Download the app and add Lincoln School PTA as your beneficiary to start giving.
Find more information in the app or at http://www.benefit-mobile.com/. Feel free to forward this email to family and friends. The more people who participate, the more funds we will raise.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Renee Dizillo: email@example.com
