"Walk for a Dog" is a Smart Phone application (app) that promotes healthy pets and healthy pet parents and allows you to raise money for GRASP every time you walk! How does it work? After you download the app onto your phone and select GRASP, take the phone with you when you walk your dog(s). You don't even have to have a dog to participate! Simply press the "start" button and the app will keep track of all your walks. For every mile you walk, a donation is made to GRASP! The more walkers we have and the more accumulated miles, the greater the donation given to GRASP!
The app was featured on Channel 13 on 11/13/14! Click here to view!
GRASP has partnered with Ambit Energy to create an ongoing cashless fundraiser. Ambit is an Energy Services COmpany (ESCO) that offers guaranteed savings over RG&E's gas & electric rates. People can support GRASP by upgrading their gas and/or electric service to Ambit Energy. This program is "win - win"!! YOU personally save money on your energy bill for your home or business, while GRASP earns $2 per month for every customer meter. With Ambit, as with any ESCO, the incumbent provider (e.g. RG&E, National Grid, etc) still reads your meter, sends your bill and will do any service in the event of a power outage. There is no fee to switch to Ambit and there are no contracts or termination fees. In addition, Ambit has a customer rewards program allowing any customer to earn free energy by making referrals. Converting your service is fast and easy!

How Does It Work?
MissionFish, a nonprofit organization specializing in online charitable auctions, developed Giving Works for eBay. Although items will be posted through MissionFish, they will appear with all other listings on eBay. Giving Works items are marked with a charity ribbon icon so buyers know they are supporting a good cause. Buyers tend to trust charity sellers more and these items often sell for more than non-charity listings. In addition, Giving Works items appear in three categories for the price of one: the category you select, the eBay Giving Works category, and the MissionFish nonprofit homepage.
