Hi Everyone,

Happy holidays! I’m really excited about a cool new way for my fans to get involved with The Avril Lavigne Foundation – a free app called the Giving Assistant. It’s a free, easy way to help kids, plus you could win some great prizes!

All you have to do is download the Giving Assistant and start shopping. Whenever you shop online at Amazon.com, Hot Topic or other partner websites, that site will donate part of your purchase to The Avril Lavigne Foundation. Pretty cool, huh? Movie tickets from Fandango.com give $0.05 to the foundation. A Kindle from Amazon.com means $5 for the foundation. Everything you buy can raise money to support children with disabilities and serious illnesses. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and it helps us help more kids. Plus, the more you use the Giving Assistant the more chances you get to win cool prizes. This month we’re giving away a prize pack of Avril Lavigne gear to one lucky Giving Assistant user – sign up now and it could be you!

Together, we can all make our shopping count this holiday season. As always, your support means so much to me and I really appreciate you getting involved.


Here’s how it works:

1. Download the Avril Lavigne Foundation Giving Assistant. It’s free and safe! Available for Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and IE on your desktop and laptop.

2. Shop on partner websites. When you need to buy anything, make your purchase on our hundreds of partner websites, including Amazon.com and Bestbuy.com.

3. Give a portion of your purchase to the Avril Lavigne Foundation. Click MAKE IT COUNT to donate a portion of your purchase! The partner websites donate the money - it’ll never cost you a penny.
