Do you shop at Amazon? Make your purchases work for Buckingham Meeting! Amazon.com now gives charities and nonprofits a very generous opportunity to earn money every time one of their supporters makes a purchase. It's called Amazon Smile, and at the encouragement of Bucks Quarter Buckingham Meeting has just joined. If you shop at Amazon, please consider making Buckingham Friends Meeting your Amazon Smile recipient of choice. Here's how it works.
1. You create an account at Amazon, which you already have if you shop there.
2. Whenever you do your shopping, don't go to Amazon's main page, but to http://smile.amazon.com instead.
3. The first time you do so you will be prompted to choose your charity. If you already use Amazon Smile and want to change your charity to us, click on the name of the charity on the upper left side of the screen.
4. Do a search for Buckingham Friends Meeting (that exact wording). If two listings appear from Lahaska, one is clearly us, and the other (listed as Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of Friends) is actually Buckingham Friends School. Select us!
It's that simple. You should see a graphic like the one above at the top of your web browser. Now every time you shop (and it must be at http://smile.amazon.com) Amazon will deposit 1/2 of 1% of each purchase directly in our account, with no cost to us.
The Amazon iOS/Android app does not currently support Amazon Smile. However, you can add items to your cart using the app, then log into Amazon Smile on a web browser and complete your purchase there.
We can't always shop locally, and when we don't this is a great way to have your money still do good work for causes you care about. Thanks in advance for signing up!
