Shop for Father's Day and help a child

onecause_logoThe Akshaya Patra Foundation, the world’s largest NGO-run midday meal program, recently partnered with OneCause, an online community aimed at socially conscious shoppers.

This is how it works: OneCause ties up with various popular merchants on one hand and with non profits on the other. When you sign up at OneCause, you can specify the charity you wish to support. After that, a portion of the money you spend on purchases at OneCause’s various partners goes to your favorite charity. Now Akshay Patra is one of those organizations supported by OneCause.

OneCause is partnered with hundreds of well-known merchants, including Amazon, Apple, Macys, Nordstrom, Target  and offers buyers special coupons and savings opportunities. Up to 20 percent of the total cost of each purchase goes directly to Akshaya Patra, at no extra cost to the consumer.

“This partnership comes at the perfect time, as people are starting to shop for Father’s Day and graduation gifts,” said Seema Joshi, Akshaya Patra’s Grassroots Development Director. “This is an easy way for people to help raise much needed funds for Akshaya Patra children.”
