APTSD FOUNDATION, EVENT CHIPS & SILENT AUCTION
The APTSD Foundation welcomes you to the 2018 Internationals and invites you to help us provide others with the same great opportunities for growth that you have gained through training in Tang Soo Do.
What is the Atlantic Pacific Tang Soo Do Foundation?
The APTSD Foundation is a nonprofit charity providing martial arts scholarships through martial arts schools to at-risk youth, giving them a safe, positive environment where they can learn discipline, build confidence, and take advantage of the many benefits learning the martial arts has to offer!
How can I help? There are many ways that you can help the APTSD Foundation:
Event Commemorative Chips
The APTSD Foundation has been offering Event chips for APTSD Federation events now for several years. Not only do these chips make excellent keepsakes for events, but they provide a great way to support the APTSD Foundation and its great works. For the 2018 Internationals, not only will we be offering the standard commemorative chips, but we will also have a limited number of Metal Foundation Chips to celebrate this great event. These chips are available as part of your registration package.
Internationals Studio Fundraiser Baskets
Represent your school by helping to put together a Studio Fundraiser Basket. Show your school spirit by contributing money or items towards a themed basket of items that will represent your school, your area, the art of Tang Soo Do or whatever theme your school chooses. These baskets will be displayed at Internationals and will be available for purchase via a silent auction, with all proceeds being donated to the APTSD Foundation. Please talk with your studio owner as it will be up to each school to determine the theme for their basket. Please consider selecting a theme that would appeal to everyone and therefore attract the greatest number of bids. We are looking forward to seeing how creative people get with this fundraiser!
The APTSD Foundation, Amazon Smile & Kroger Community Rewards Program
US residents can sign up to support the APTSD Foundation via either the Amazon Smile program, available throughout the US or via the Kroger Community Rewards program available in certain areas. Both of these programs allow people to purchase the same items at the same prices as they would normally, but with the added benefit that a portion of the money is donated to the APTSD Foundation. All this at no cost to the individual. It takes just a few moments to sign up. Please see the following links for instructions on how to set this up:
You can update your charity selected by going into your Amazon Account and click on Account & Lists. From the dropdown, select Your AmazonSmile. This will bring you to Your AmazonSmile impact page, where you can see what your purchases have generated for the APTSD Foundation. You can click on Change Charity if it does not indicate the Atlantic Pacific Tang Soo Do Foundation.
Then, when you shop at Amazon, go to Smile.Amazon.com to make purchases.
We recommend that you bookmark our unique link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/45-3676632 so you don't accidentally shop at Amazon.com instead of Smile.Amazon.com. Only purchases made at AmazoneSmile are eligible for donations. Once you select our organization, the Atlantic Pacific Tang Soo Do Foundation will receive 0.5% of the price of all your eligible www.smile.amazon.com purchases.
Please note that these are the same items and prices as the regular Amazon website.
