Each Community Bag comes with a Giving Tag attached, providing shoppers with the option to make their own choice of a local nonprofit to receive the $1 donation from their bag purchase.
By following instructions on the Giving Tag within seven days of purchase, shoppers visit MyBigYCause.com to submit a nonprofit of their choice. Once your organization reaches $5 or more from the Giving Tag, you’ll receive a donation check!
If the Giving Tag isn’t submitted within seven days, then the $1 will be directed to the nonprofit selected by store leadership for that month.
