Do you shop on Amazon? If yes, it is easy to support St. Nicholas Academy with each purchase via AmazonSmile. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to your selected charity.
It is simple and only takes a few minutes to set up. If you type in the word ‘smile.’ before Amazon.com, you will be brought to the same Amazon site, but on the fundraising side. http://smile.amazon.com/. The site looks almost the same as Amazon.com…except for the ‘smile’. The first time you go to the ‘Smile’ side, you will be asked to choose the organization that you want to support. Search for ‘St. Nicholas’ and you will be able to choose “St. Nicholas Academy”. Then just use Amazon like you always have. Everything is exactly the same. (Change your bookmark so that you go to the Smile site. We only get credit if you order from the Smile side. It must say ‘smile.amazon.com’ every time.) Don’t forget to forward this on to family and friends that may want to help support St. Nick’s via AmazonSmile too! Remember – it cost the purchaser nothing, but has the potential to make a significant impact for our cause!
