Nellybean.com: Discounts for you = Fundraising for ASACIC!
ASACIC is working with Nellybean.com to provide discounts and deals to our members while generating some revenue for ourselves.

Members (you) can choose the businesses from whom they want to receive Nellys. Members also can choose organizations they want to support (such as ASACIC), who receive a percentage of all revenue paid by merchants based on the organizations that members have chosen to support.
