We just came back from a training session and wanted to write to you about a new program for our sport that could go a long way toward helping us in London in 2012.
USA Badminton has entered into a relationship with an organization called Sportgiving that has gone out and secured a number of companies that will give you a discount and USA Badminton a cash royalty for our normal shopping. The list of companies is pretty amazing and includes groups like Amazon, Avis, Walmart, Target, Kohl's and Best Buy just to name a few. And shopping this way is pretty easy. You or any of your family or friends just go to www.sportgiving.com and select Badminton from the list of sports offered or go to the USA Badminton website www.usabadminton.org and click on the Sportgiving logo. From there you shop, if you need to, and when you do, a percentage of every sale benefits USAB athletes and coaches. The percentage we get is listed with every company so you can see immediately how they value our loyalty.
If you get a chance, check it out. Let's keep USA Badminton going strong.
