Do you shop at Ralphs?

Do you shop at Ralphs?

Do you or someone you know shop at Ralphs (or another Kroger-brand grocery chain)?

You do? Awesome! We’d like to share with you you to an absolutely zero-effort way you and your friends and family can support Theatre Unleashed by doing something you already do regularly: shopping for groceries.

So, if you’re a regular at Ralphs, you probably have a rewards card. If you don’t have a Rewards Card, you want to get one. When you shop at Ralphs and use your rewards card, you can now designate Theatre Unleashed as a charitable beneficiary, and Ralphs will donate 0.5% of what you spend to the company through the Ralphs Community Contribution Program.

Now, we know half a percent doesn’t sound like a lot. It’s not. We literally get a nickel for every $10 you spend. That’s nothing.

But some of our members shop at Ralphs three or four times per week and the average bill can be anywhere from $20 to $100 per trip. That’s maybe fifty cents a week? Again, that doesn’t sound like much, but that adds up to $25 per year. Just from one person, and all at no additional cost to them.

Now multiply that $25 per year by just 50 people, and you have $1,250, or enough to cover our average marketing budget on a main stage show.

If you multiply that by the thousands of Ralphs shoppers that are on our Facebook, Twitter, and mailing list… suddenly we’re talking about being able to possibly cover an entire production with a year’s worth of contributions.

So, now that you see the benefit here, what do you do?

This literally takes 2 minutes. We know, because we’ve done it ourselves:

1) Go to
2) If you don’t already have an account, create one.
3) Log in to your account on their site.
4) Register your Ralphs Rewards Card on your profile (you’ll need the number off the back of the card, or you may be able to look it up with your phone number).
4) Click “Community Rewards” on the left-hand menu
5) In the search field, enter “Theatre Unleashed”
6) We’re the first result. Click “Enroll” under our name.
7) Go shopping!

And that’s it! It really is that simple, and it works with other Kroger-family stores with Rewards Programs, so that means your family and friends that live in other regions can contribute, too! That includes:

  • Baker’s
  • City Market
  • Dillons
  • Food 4 Less
  • Foods Co
  • Fred Meyer
  • Fry’s
  • Gerbes
  • Harris Teeter
  • King Soopers
  • Jay C Food Store
  • Kroger
  • Owens Market
  • Pay-Less Super Markets
  • QFC
  • Ralphs
  • Smith’s Food and Drug

We’re here to put up the best theatre in Los Angeles. In order to do so, we need your help.

This is a really, really easy way to help.

Thank you.

Support Theatre Unleashed when you shop on Amazon!

We all order things from Amazon, right? Well, what if you could support one of your favorite 501(c)(3) non-profit theatre companies with every purchase? Turns out, you can! You just go through Amazon Smile.

Intrigued? Good! Here’s all you have to do:

  1. Go to
  2. Search for Theatre Unleashed in their charity database
  3. Select Theatre Unleashed as your charity.
  4. Whenever you shop on Amazon, go to to do your shopping and we’ll get 0.5% of what you spend.

It’s at no additional cost to you, and it’s all the same stuff as plain ol’

Now, we know half a percent doesn’t sound like a lot. It’s not. Theatre Unleashed literally get a nickel for every $10 you spend. That’s nothing. But some of us shop on Amazon at least two to three times per month and that average bill is anywhere from $10 to $100 every order. That average jumps up even more when you get to the holidays.

So those nickel orders can add up pretty quickly to… what, maybe five or ten dollars a year in contributions? that’s not too bad, when you consider it’s from just from one person, and at no additional cost to the donor.

Again, that doesn’t sound like much. But when you get ten people doing this, $5 becomes $50. A hundred people and $5 becomes $500. A thousand people and $5 a year becomes $5,000.

You know what an additional $5,000 per year can do for us? That’s enough to cover all of our annual administrative overhead, AND gives us enough money to offer stipends for box office managers and stage managers for our entire main stage season.

That’s pretty good. Even the smallest contributions can make the biggest difference.

So please, when you shop on Amazon, remember to Smile for Theatre Unleashed! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
