Turbo-Charge Your Donation at Foodland

For those of you in Hawaii, there's a great way to make your donation go even farther. During the month of September, Foodland, through its Give Aloha program, will match your donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, as much as dollar-for-dollar.

(They will match up to $300,000 total over all organizations, proportionally divided if the total take exceeds $300K. For example if they take in $600K in donations, Foodland will still add $300K to the kitty, matching $1 for each $2 in donations.)

Here what you need to do:

  1. Make a donation (up to $249) to LLS at your local Foodland or Sack N Save store using your Maika'i card. The Give Aloha code for LLS Hawaii Chapter is 77645. Checks and such should be made payable to Foodland (not LLS).

  2. So that I can receive credit for my fundraising, I need a copy of your donation receipt. You can give it to me personally, mail it to me, or e-mail me a scanned copy. If you are interested and need my contact info, send a comment to me with your name and e-mail address (do NOT use Typepad), and I will reply back without publishing your comment. As always, your donation is still tax-deductible. It is important, however, that you keep the original copy for your tax records; that is the only record that you will have if you go this route.

From there, I will forward your receipts to the LLS chapter office, and I will get credit for your base donation. The matching amount from Foodland will be divided among participants who turn in receipts.

If you have any questions, please comment me. Mahalo!
