Project Grad

My mission is to help this group raise enough money to keep the project going. I am not affiliated with this group. I just saw a segment on the news about them, and decided to help them any way I can.

Project Grad

Uneducated people do not choose to be in that condition of poverty, but due to not achieving any level of education which is a basic human right, they have not had the same chances in life. People need an education. Educated people make better leaders. Educated people can solve more problems.

Project Grad’s Mission

College and career access and success

I love Ebates! At Ebates, they don’t ask you to fill out forms or earn points. In fact, earning Cash Back with Ebates is as easy as 1-2-3:

Shop: First, start an Ebates Shopping Trip. To do this, simply be sure to click on any Ebates link to the store you’ll shop with before you make a purchase.
Validate: When you click an Ebates link, you’ll see a pop-up confirmation letting you know you’re ready to shop and earn Cash Back at that store.
Purchase: Complete your purchase as you normally would. This will also complete your Shopping Trip.
That’s all you have to do.

Once the store lets them know that you’ve made a purchase, they will add your Cash Back to your account and send you an email confirmation. It usually takes a little time for the store to let them know that your purchase was completed. Depending on the store, this can take from a few hours to several days. Then, every three months, they send you the Cash Back you’ve earned, in a Big Fat Check or via PayPal.

Retroactively earning Cash Back

Did you place an order, but forgot to go through Ebates first? Unfortunately, you can only earn Cash Back by starting a Shopping Trip with Ebates first. They have no way to add Cash Back after a purchase has already been made.

If you are finding it difficult to remember to go to Ebates.com before you purchase, try their Cash Back Button. I use it. It pops up automatically on any site where Ebates Cash Back is available, and it even finds coupons for you.

Click on the banner below to gwt started. I enjoy getting a check every 3 months. If you shop online a lot, that can really add up, providing the merchant is participating with Ebates. Try it…

“Treat those who are good with goodness,

“Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.”
― Lao Tzu
