Thank you to our many readers who augment their financial support to The Citizen by designating us as their preferred charity through the AmazonSmile program. Amazon recently announced that to thank their customers for supporting charities through AmazonSmile they will donate 5% of the purchase price of eligible items to the charity customers choose when they shop on smile.amazon.com.
Note that 5% is ten times the typical donation rate! This generous offer will only last through Friday, November 2nd. If you have started your holiday shopping – or have been thinking about it – your purchases this week could bring additional dollars of support to The Citizen – it would be a great gift to us and no worries about size or color. A surefire hit!
Sign up is easy. Just go to smile.amazon.com and follow the directions to select The Bedford Citizen as your preferred charity. You can continue to use your existing Amazon account and all your existing account settings remain the same. These contributions are not tax deductible by you as all contributions are made through The Amazon Foundation.
