BC student’s site taps Amazon sales to help charities
Growing up, Dan Sipple learned the importance of charities. His father ran a safe home for boys. But he also saw the stress running an organization put on his father — dealing with funding cuts, for example. There must be a better way to raise money, he thought. Now 19, Sipple, thinks he has come up with one: Buy For Us , a program that gives about 5 percent of a customer’s purchase price on Amazon.com to a charity of his or her choice.
