Holiday Shopping at Your Fingertips

Dreading the long list of holiday gifts you have to buy? Does your gift shopping list keep getting longer and longer? Avoid the crowds and hassles of Black Friday, and shop online at CharityBlast.com, a website that provides exceptional discounts at online stores. The best part? CharityBlast donates up to 30% of your purchase to the charity of your choice-- in this case, A Silver Lining Foundation (ASLF).

ASLF's mission is to ensure dignified, respectful and equal access to quality cancer education and services for all, by creating meaningful partnerships with community, advocacy and healthcare organizations. ASLF gives gifts year-round through its Buy A Mom A Mammogram program, which provides no-cost breast cancer screening mammograms to underinsured and uninsured patients.

CharityBlast gives discounts at online stores like Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Dell, Delta Airlines, Harry & David, Macy's, Old Navy, Staples, The Body Shop, Travelocity and more. That can cover just about anyone on any list. Santa, if you're reading this, take note.

Use this special link to shop for ASLF on CharityBlast.

ASLF has given back-- now it's time to give back to ASLF. And it's just a few mouseclicks away. No crowded mall parking lots for you!

Have you been naughty or nice?

The holidays are just around the corner, which means it's the season of gift-giving. Make sure your name is on Santa's list of "Nice" rather than "Naughty" by joining the Junior Board of A Silver Lining Foundation (ASLF) for the "Save the Girls Holiday Party" at Zella (1983 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago; 773-549-2910) on Friday, December 5 at 8:30 p.m.

"Save the Girls Holiday Party" will raise money to fund no cost screening mammograms for uninsured and underinsured individuals, and raise awareness of the need for early detection of breast cancer. It will support ASLF's unique Buy A Mom A Mammogram program, which provides the screening mammograms. Is there a better gift to give during the holidays?

While the December temperatures drop, you'll be enjoying the all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink party in a heated tent on Zella's outdoor patio. Advance tickets are $35, and can be purchased online at www.asilverliningfoundation.org/tickets, with $40 admission at the door. All attendees will receive a raffle ticket for prizes like sporting tickets, mountain bikes, and much more.
