For every purchase you make at Randalls, Inprint will receive a donation equivalent to 1% of your total purchase at no additional cost to you. Stop by the service desk at any Randalls store and have your Randalls Remarkable Card linked to account #1915. Each time you make a purchase, Randalls will make a donation equivalent to 1% of your total bill to Inprint.

Make your gift to Inprint twice as nice

Many companies will match charitable donations made by their employees. Through these programs, when you make a donation your company will make a donation to the charity in the same amount or “match” your gift. Several Houston companies are listed below. (Your organization may still participate even if it is not listed; check with your human resources department.) To participate, stop by your human resources office for a matching gifts form and send it in along with your gift. Thank you for making your gift twice as nice!
