Do you shop?

There are some pretty exciting things happening in life right now... despite TOO many things happening in life, I know that everything is just rolling along at a decent pace, that this feeling of having too much stuff to do will not last forever, and that right now it is essential.  It is just CRAZY how different everything feels from being in Malawi.

but, one of the things about being in Malawi, is being able to be involved in amazing causes.  This past weekend, I met with a few people about WHEAMS, and the process of making WHEAMS a canadian charitable organization.  Also about what our roles are probably going to be, in taking up this initiative.  folks, you may be taking to a co-chair of WHEAMS in Canada.  woooooOOOOOoooooo!  So, one of the things that will consistently be on my mind, is how can I help to raise money for the fantastic work that is being done? And, this is one thing that can happen.

do you shop?  for food, for groceries, for gifts, for clothes, for accessories, for music, for underwear, for toiletries?  My guess is yes.  so, why don't you shop, while giving to a good cause?!?!  If you would love to do that, get the information by just scrolling down!
Buy Budget Cards, Shop with Budget Cards! 
Contribute to Development in Malawi!

Every year it becomes harder for groups like ours to raise money for our important goals.  Finding an easy and effective way to fundraise is often the difference between success and failure.  That is why we have chosen FundScript and we are inviting you to help. 

Fundsrip is an online fundraising program that asks you to pay for your everyday purchases with gift (or budget) cards brought through the FundScrip website;  a percentage of the cards that you purchase is then donated to our group.

This means that just by paying for your groceries, gas, and other household items with budget cards, you can easily help generate much needed funds to help WHEAMS projects in Malawi.
  • it doesn't cost you anything extra
  • you don't have to change what you shop or what you buy
  • your every day purchases add up to make a difference very quickly!

Thank You for taking the time to read this message!  We really appreciate your help (and if you might re-blog, re-tweet, or share the message on facebook/google plus) in helping us raise funds for what we believe is a sustainable and important project!

Please feel free to email me at, or the other co-chair of WHEAMS Canada, Liz Johnstone at, if you want to learn more about why we are raising money for WHEAMS through St. Stephens Anglican Church, or have any questions about FundScrip.

Warm Regards,
Liz Johnstone and Amelia Payne

Can you remind me what WHEAMS is?
Does this program work in the US as well?
