How can you shop online AND give to the Ripon Rotary Club?  Here's how!
So many of us shop online.  There is a way to do that and to support the Ripon Rotary Club at the same time!  iGive is a site that lets us shop at many of our favorite stores; part of what we spend is then given to the Ripon Rotary Club.  There is no catch.  The prices are the same as always. 
Just click below to enroll.  Then, when you visit a participating retailer online, it will automatically ask you to activate iGive.  That's it!  Simple.  You shop; Ripon Rotary gets money!  You can't go wrong with this.
