Amazon Smile donates to USHPA

Post by Frederick » Sun May 22, 2016 8:59 pm

Smile.Amazon.com is a parallel site Amazon has that allows you to pick a charity that they'll donate a bit of your purchase to. USHPA is now a listed charity there.

Amazon says they donate a portion that they would have otherwise spent on advertising.

You just do your ordering from smile.amazon.com instead of from amazon.com, each time. Specify your charity is:

"United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association Inc"

Yes, the price you pay is identical, whether you go through smile.amazon.com or the main site.

Looks like we can choose Sylmar Hang Gliding Association as a smile.amazon.com charity now!

0.5% of purchases gets donated

I just changed my Amazon account to AmazonSmile and I encourage everyone else who shops there does the same. I buy lots of stuff there and look forward to seeing some of that dough go to SHGA!
