Support the Sibling Support Project Through Holiday Shopping - Please!

I am passing this email along from the Sibling Support Project.  This is a most worthy organization, providing a safe place to vent, to share experiences, to ask for information, and just simply to network with other people who have disabled siblings.  The type of disability isn't important.  It can be physical, mental, or developmental.

I honestly wish there was a similar organization for the "others" in siblings' lives - such as their husbands and wives.  But there is not.  But at least the siblings have support.

This will not cost you anything.  If you plan to do your holiday shopping (Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, or whatever) on Amazon, simply use the link below to access  It will only cost you a few seconds, and will not cost you a penny.

Thank you for your support!

Dear friend of Sibshops and the Sibling Support Project,

spacer.gifIf you’re like me, you will start thinking about gifts for loved ones in the next few days. And, like me, you may prefer shopping online instead of heading to the mall.

If you are one of the millions who shop at Amazon, I have a favor to ask: Will you support the work of the Sibling Support Project by beginning your shopping by “entering” Amazon through the Sibling Support Project’s “Astore”?

You will get the same great deals you always get at Amazon, and Amazon will donate up to 6.5% of the purchase price to the Sibling Support Project!

Here’s the website for our Amazon Astore. Please add it to your favorites or bookmarks.

Once you add something to your shopping cart and proceed to checkout, you can then wander anywhere on Amazon. (And, if needed, you can yank any item out of your shopping cart prior to purchase.) Any eventual purchase made within 24 hours of entering the Astore will benefit the Sibling Support Project. 

Thank you for your support! Here’s the link again.

One last thing!  If you'd like to celebrate the holidays with a direct gift to the Sibling Support Project please click here.  Those who give at the $100+ level get a free copy of our newest book, Thicker than Water: Essays by adult siblings of people with disabilities!

Wishing you all the best,

Don Meyer

Director, Sibling Support Project

PS—In case you were wondering, we never know who buys what on our Amazon Astore, so we’ll never know you bought grandpa a subscription to Playboy.

PSS—If you think this is a cool way to do good while doing the inevitable holiday shopping, will you please share this email with others?
