Procrastinators: Still one more day left to shop online Christmas Delivery extended to December 20, 2011

By  | 

There is still time to order online for your last minute gifts. According to Shop.org’s eHoliday Survey, conducted by BIGresearch, eight in 10 (87.0%) retailers’ standard shipping deadlines for Christmas delivery will expire before or on Tuesday, December 20. For those who really procrastinate, online purchases can be made all the way up to December 23 if you are willing to pay a premium delivery charge.

Why not complete your online shopping through the Louisiana Community Marketplace (LCM)? When you shop through www.louisianacommunitymarketplace.com you support your favorite local nonprofit organization, school or church. A portion of online purchases from Amazon, Target, Sears, Expedia and many others retailers are returned to our community, providing an untapped revenue source for your favorite cause.
 
Unrestricted dollars are getting harder and harder to raise. Every year Louisianans spend upwards of $4.5 billion on online shopping. Online sales revenue is currently an untapped source of income for nonprofits. LCM provides a way to access these resources without incurring out-of-pocket expense. With over 80 Louisiana nonprofits to choose from and growing everyday you can purchase virtually anything you normally purchase online and give back to the community at the same time.
 
LCM is looking for nonprofits, schools, churches and companies interested in participating in this endeavor sponsored in part by ExxonMobil, the Capital Area United Way, LANO and the Wilson Foundation. Anyone can support Louisiana nonprofits by shopping via LCM.
