AmazonSmile Setup Instructions for SSCA

Shopping just got more rewarding! Make your dollars go farther this holiday season with AmazonSmile! You shop and AmazonSmile gives to South Shore Christian Academy!

SAME PRODUCTS, SAME PRICES, SAME SERVICE as Amazon.com, but with an extra bonus–you can earn money for our school! It’s a simple and automatic way to support South Shore Christian Academy EVERY time you shop with no added costs. You may use your existing Amazon account to use AmazonSmile.

 

 

What is AmazonSmile?

The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to run the AmazonSmile Program. AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com, with the added bonus of earning proceeds for charity. AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charity selected by its customers.
