This Monday is Cyber Monday, which traditionally has been one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. So if you’re shopping online on Monday (or any day of the year, for that matter), consider buying some Old North merchandise by clicking HERE. ONSLRG t-shirts, mugs, and stickers make great presents!
If you want to purchase any merchandise available on Amazon, consider supporting Old North St. Louis Restoration Group by making the purchase via Amazon Smile (Smile.Amazon.com) and select Old North St. Louis Restoration Group as the non-profit to benefit from your purchase. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support ONSLRG every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization (which, we hope, is Old North St. Louis Restoration Group). On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), before you begin shopping you need to select a charitable organization - just type in “Old North St. Louis Restoration” in the search box, which will then bring up Old North St. Louis Restoration Group - and then you just click on the “select” button to designate ONSLRG as the charitable organization of your choice to receive donations from eligible purchases. Then the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The site will remember your selection, and every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.
For more about the Amazon Smile Foundation, click HERE.

But wait, there’s more!
According to GivingTuesday.org:
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
We’d greatly appreciate any support you could offer for ONSLRG on this Giving Tuesday. One option for you is to click HERE or on the image below to make a financial contribution to help us continue our work of revitalizing the physical and social dimensions of the Old North neighborhood in a manner that respects the community’s historic, cultural, and urban character.
Or, you can click HERE to learn about ways you can volunteer some of your time with us.
We’d also like to know if you have any other creative ideas for helping ONSLRG continue the great progress we’ve made. Feel free to comment here by clicking on the LEAVE A COMMENT link at the top left side of this post, or send us an email (to info@ONSL.org) to let us know your idea. As always, feel free to share this with others who might have an interest in supporting ONSLRG by clicking the envelope image with “EMAIL” under it, also at the top left side of this post.
