Help my son with his fundraiser

My son is trying to raise funds to go to Disneyland with his homeschool group in September. The more funds he can raise, the more the group will pay for. Our ideal would be to pay for tickets for the whole family as well as a hotel room. But even if he just earns enough for his own ticket that will be something. Anyway, one of the methods he can use to raise funds is by people buying stuff online using the SmartRaise service. You don't pay any more, and part of every purchase goes to fund the trip.
So, if you would be so kind as to purchase stuff that you normally would anyway through this online service, you'd do us a great help. It's stuff you'd buy anyway, so it's not like those $2 candy bars that some groups sell for fundraisers. You're only out the effort to sign up for this service and use it for your online purchases.
Here's the letter that the group gave us to help with fundraising.

Southwest Home Educators Association

  3. Please use this code as the DISPLAY NAME: Cookie Chef

That way we can track the purchases to credit the right student.

Thats it!  We will earn rewards for every dollar you spend using your SmartRaise account.  With big names like,,, and many, many more on-board, this is an easy way for you to make a big difference.  Best of all, you pay the same prices you always would have, so helping us fundraise doesnt cost you a dime!
