Every $2.50 Community Bag comes with an attached Giving Tag. The Giving Tag provides the opportunity for shoppers at any Big Y location to send the $1 donation from the purchase of the bag to a non-profit of their choice at any time.
How the Giving Tag Works
Go to any Big Y store and purchase a $2.50 Community Bag
with an attached Giving Tag.
Follow the instructions on the Giving Tag within 7 days of purchase: Visit MyBigYCause.com, enter your tag's unique scratch off code and
choose your non-profit's name from the list of non-profits. If you don't see
your organization listed, you can submit it right there on the form!
We'll send you a donation check whenever you reach $5 or more
from the Giving Tag.
All you need to do now is spread the word. Download the Giving Tag Marketing Toolkit below to access
helpful tools like social media templates, e-mail blasts, press releases and more.
