Did you know that Amazon is not only a quick and easy way to shop for just about anything, it is also a simple and automatic way to give to our church? That’s right. With each of your Amazon purchases you can also support FUMCFW when you shop — at no additional cost to you — through something called AmazonSmile.
As one of the largest retailers in the world, Amazon is a site that most of us have visited. From click to cart, it’s a one-stop shop for a broad range of items. Now, through this strange magic of shopping technology, our church is now registered to receive a donation of 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases — automatically — once you do a quick and simple setup on your Amazon account.
You’ll get the exact same low prices, vast selection, and convenient shopping experience — and our church will benefit when you shop. Here’s how it works:
1. Go to smile.amazon.com from your computer or mobile device. If you already have an Amazon account, you can also use it on AmazonSmile. Remember, only purchases at smile.amazon.com (not amazon.com or the mobile app) support First Church, so be sure you are on the smile.amazon.com site to generate a donation from your purchases!
2. Select FUMCFW as the charitable organization that you would like to receive donations from eligible purchases. Amazon will remember your selection for future purchases.
3. Look for “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on the product detail pages. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations.
Simple as that! Now you have even more reason to smile when you shop with the knowledge that you are also giving to our church every time you click “purchase” on qualified items through AmazonSmile!
