iMyne. Another great way to support Taste of the NFL

You may have already heard about a new fundraising tool called iMyne. It allows you to shop online as usual, earn cash-back, and give to your favorite charity all at once. 

We love it. 

1.) Visit the Site https://imyne.com/TNFL It's secure and it's free. 

2.) Then, select Taste of the NFL as your benefiting charity. 

3.) When you visit a retailer's website (Target, Best Buy, Kohl's, Sears and many more participate), a button pops up telling you how much you earn-back shopping that store. 

4.) Then, after you make a purchase, a donation is automatically sent to TNFL on your behalf. 


If you like iMyne, please share it with your friends. 

As our iMyne network grows, more is earned and more is given to care for the hungry and homeless. 

You can change your charity anytime. However, if you sign-up with the link in this email, TNFL will benefit as your referrer to the iMyne network. 

Everyone wins. 

Please take 2 minutes to click and sign-up to startiMyning for Taste of the NFL now. It's a powerful way to give by simply shopping as usual. As always, 100% of the donated funds will be distributed directly to feed families in need across America. 

Thank you for helping us Kick Hunger!
