Amazon Smiles

Posted by

Our club has recently signed up for the AmazonSmile program.  If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a program that Amazon offers where they contribute .5% of your qualifying purchase to our club as a non-profit, 501-c3 charitable organization.

It’s easy.  You don’t have to be a member of our Facebook page (although we would like you to join and follow us to see all the exciting things we do), you don’t have to be a member of our club (although we’d like you to join in the fun rides and camaraderie for only $20 per year for the entire family!) and you don’t even have to be a member of Amazon Prime.  All you have to do is when you place an order with Amazon, instead of ordering through Amazon or Amazon Prime, log on to using your regular Amazon sign on credentials, select Your Account, then select Change Your Charity and chose us – Chippewa County SORVA.  Or use this convenient link

The prices are no different ordering through AmazonSmiles than they are if ordering through the main site.  And the .5% contribution we receive is NOT added to the cost of your purchase.  Amazon donates it to us out of their profit on the sale.

If you do the math on one of your purchases you’ll see the club is not going to get a windfall out of this.  We’re a somewhat small but growing club, and with it we have a rather small budget, so every little bit helps.

Thanks for helping our club through your Amazon purchases!
