Amazon Smile Foundation
Do you purchase items from Amazon.com?
Of course you do!
We all do these days. Well, I have great news. The ARWA John A Garrett Scholarship Fund has partnered with The AmazonSmile Foundation in order to receive 0.05% contributions from qualifying purchases you make when shopping at Amazon.
This costs you $0.00 additional dollars. You just sign up at smile.amazon.com and select the ARWA John A Garrett Scholarship Fund as your preferred charity, then shop as usual. Qualifying items will automatically generate donations. The items cost the same as before, so you’ll experience no difference in your purchasing budget, while simultaneously generating revenue for our charity.
The only difference you will experience, is that you will have to go to smile.amazon.com, rather than amazon.com to begin shopping. Everything else is exactly the same! Great news, right!
Here is how to get started in 4 easy steps:
- Go to https://smile.amazon.com and click the ‘Get
- Search for our charity. We find that using ‘arwa john’
is enough to find our group.
- Select the ARWA John A Garrett Scholarship Fund Inc as
your charity of choice.
- Check the box, and then select ‘Start Shopping’.
That’s it! Now the only change you will experience is when you start shopping. Instead of going to https://amazon.com, you’ll go to https://smile.amazon.com.
Once you do that, you be supporting scholarships at no
additional cost to you. Buy things and feel great about
