A Teen Guide To Providing Cancer Support When They Shop Online

Shopping Blog

As teens get older and gain more responsibility, they have a chance to shop online and find products they love. Instead of just blindly shopping online, you can provide ways for a teen to increase their charitable efforts and use their interest in online shopping to help those in need.

Follow this guide to learn ways teens can shop to provide prostate cancer support and learn a lot along the way.

A Charitable Foundation

The younger a child learns to help others and give back, the more likely they will continue those charitable efforts in their older years. Build a foundation by going into the details of the charities they support. Find out how the proceeds of a purchase will truly help those in need and the importance of giving to others.

Through a little extra research, you can help build empathy in teens and make them want to help with charitable efforts in the future.

Purchase Options

Teens may not have ways to shop online, but parents can offer multiple methods and allow those online purchases to go to cancer support or other charities. One way is with a prepaid debit card. With a prepaid card, you can set the amount a teen is allowed to spend, so they do not overspend or overdraft on a traditional account.

You also have the option to add a teen as an authorized user on a credit card. On most accounts, a teen doesn't need a credit check to get added as an authorized user. You can give them their own card and set a credit limit. A teen can help build their credit and shop to provide cancer support at the same time.

Shop for Essential Products

Instead of the purchase of frivolous items, a teen has the opportunity to help charities and purchase essential items at the same time. For example, a teen could purchase items for back to school, like supplies and electronics. If a teen attends college, then they could purchase dorm room needs.

Around the holidays, a teen could purchase gifts for others.

Spread the Word

Along with online shopping, a teen also likes to spend a lot of time on social media. As a teen learns how to shop and support charities, they could use their friend circle to encourage similar purchases. Word of mouth can go a long way and help support those in need. A teen can really encourage peers and friends to help support important causes like cancer treatment.

Take your time to help talk a teen through the online shopping process and build a foundation that can last for years to come. For more information on how to shop to provide cancer support, contact a professional near you.

Shopping Can Be a Rewarding Hobby

I have loved to shop ever since I was a young girl and have always considered it one of my favorite hobbies. While many people find shopping a chore, I love hunting down great bargains, and I often check out every online and brick-and-mortar store that offers an item before I purchase it. That way, I can stretch my shopping dollars and stick to my relatively tight budget each month. I know that there are many people out there that find hunting for deals a chore or simply don't have time to do it, so I thought I would start a helpful blog where I share some of my most recent new shopping deals and discoveries. I hope you come back often and my posts help you!
