This is a quick reminder to please remember Smile.Amazon.com when you shop online. Amazon has a foundation that supports nonprofits. We are a nonprofit on their list of eligible charities. All of us shoppers are eligible to use Smile.Amazon.com and to designate the HdG Youth Sailing Program as our designated recipient charity.
The AmazonSmile Foundation was created by Amazon to administer its AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
We get rebates from about 30 purchases per month from folks designating us as their recipient charity. This produces a few hundred dollars per year for us to use. And, we appreciate every penny for boat upkeep, instructional supplies, and ice cream for the campers at the promenade grill.
