Help Fund The Club With Amazon Smile

      No Comments on Help Fund The Club With Amazon Smile

Our Treasurer Don, WA2SWX, has found a painless way to help the club: Amazon Smile.  When setup, Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchases to OVH.  There are two steps: 1) Add the OVH as your charity on your amazon account ; 2) When buying,  buy on smile.amazon.com instead of www.amazon.com.

Getting your Amazon purchase to count and make a contribution

There are several ways to get your purchase to count.

The first is to simply get into amazon with the following URL http://smile.amazon.com   

One you succeed, you can make a bookmark and use that.  If you go to www.amazon.com, your purchase  will not count.   You can tell that you are in Smile because your  Amazon  page shows it as shown below.
