‘Tis the season for online shopping! When you designate JAHA as a charity to support while shopping on Amazon, .5% of the purchase price of many things you buy will be donated directly to JAHA through direct deposit. There is no additional cost to the consumer for this – it’s literally free money to the benefiting organization.
Our link is https://smile.amazon.com/ch/25-1247390 — it will take you directly to Amazon, where you can begin shopping with your existing Amazon account (if you have one) using any lists, settings, preferences associated with it. However, the trick is to always be sure you start shopping from the smile.amazon.com address in the future, rather than the regular Amazon address – it will remember your charity, and even keep track of your donations! You can tell you’re in the right place when you see the Amazon Smile logo in the upper left corner, rather than the regular logo.
If you shop on your phone using the Amazon app, you can find “Amazon Smile” in the Settings menu – from there, follow the directions to activate the service and designate the Johnstown Area Heritage Association as your beneficiary.
