Did you know that you can earn money for charity when you shop online using the Amazon SMILE program! It’s true! The key is to watch the URL and once you are on the Amazon website, just change www to smile if the web address is not already pointing there. Then once you choose a charity from the list of participating organizations, that information will be saved in your profile. Just remember to navigate to the proper page (smile.amazon.com) before you place your shopping order!
One of the reasons I selected PuraVida as one of my small collection of Affiliate partnerships, is the fact that they support a number of charities through the sale of jewelry from their Charity Collection – where “Every Bracelet Purchased Makes a Difference“!
Starting today and until the Closer to Free Ride in September 2019, I am going to donate my profits from the purchase of anything from PuraVida to my husband Paul Apito’s #CTFRIDE fundraising efforts!
“Pura Vida” means “pure life” in Spanish, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Slowing things down, celebrating good fortune, and refusing to take anything for granted embodies this laid back lifestyle. “Pura Vida” means living life to the fullest. It’s more than just a saying… it’s a lifestyle.
I’m even donating from the SALE products so make sure to check them out first!
UPDATE April 2019 – I got my fundraising order and these bracelets are so cute!

CBD for Closer to Free
As many people know, for the past few years I have sold various products in order to raise money for charity. I donated gift baskets of products to raffles when I was a sales rep for NYR Organic a few years ago; I donated my profits from the purchase of a certain book about coping with ocular melanoma from customers who used my Amazon Affiliate Link; and as an affiliate of PuraVida I donated the profits from the sale of certain curated selection of jewelry to a number of different fund raisers. A few experiences last year helped me narrow down and focus my fundraising efforts going forward.
I am proud to plan to volunteer at the Closer to Free Ride in person at the Yale Bowl in September. And between now and then I am also working to raise funds for my husband Paul, who is riding 100 Miles to raise $1,000 in my honor, to benefit Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center.
In January I joined the health and wellness company Vitalibis as a Brand Ambassador. The Vitalibis products are focused on full-spectrum hemp CBD Oil!
Between now and ride day, September 7th, 2019, I am donating any profits I earn from the purchase* of our Soothing Body Cream to Paul’s Closer to Free Ride fund raising!
Vitalibis Soothing Body Cream is a topical rub which provides a cooling / warming sensation to targeted areas, while leaving your skin feeling moisturized. Includes a proprietary blend of oils, including Vitalibis’ premium full spectrum phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil with approximately 400mg of naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids per tube. Perfect for massage therapists, sports practitioners, athletes and individuals with active lifestyles.
Let the training begin!

I am really looking forward to participating as a Volunteer with the 9th Annual Closer to Free Ride! This will be our second year participating, me as a ride day volunteer at the Yale Bowl and Paul riding to raise donations. This year he will be riding 100 miles! Here is a photo from the finish line last year after finishing 65 miles.
The still frame at the beginning of this video is actually my medical oncologist, Dr Sznol, who also rode as a fundraiser last year! Watch to enjoy some highlights from last year’s event.
I’m happy to announce I found the perfect synergy between my efforts to raise awareness about eye cancer and my efforts to raise money for cancer research.
Between now and September 25th, 2018 I will donate any commissions* I earn from the purchase of this adorable good luck eye charm necklace or “evil eye” ring to the 3rd annual Stroll the Square event hosted by William Raveis Real Estate of Glastonbury to benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
