Give Back with Amazon Smile

Looking for Other Ways to Give?

Think of how much you spend on Amazon.  You probably don’t know, but for most of us it's far more than we’d guess. I was shocked at what my relatively non-consumerist household spent with Amazon in one year. Now, what if I told you there’s a way to raise a bit of money for Beth Sholom, that costs you nothing and requires no effort.  The Amazon Smile feature donates 0.5% of many purchases to the non-profit of your choice.  It does not impact the price you pay for anything, and you don’t have to remember to do anything once you set it up (which takes five minutes). 

Here’s a link to the Amazon page that explains the program.

While I hope that you join Amazon Smile and select 'Beth Sholom Temple of Fredericksburg Virginia', you can choose from many others non-profits. 

If you are not already using Amazon Smile, please take a few moments to sign up. If all temple members did it, it would be like signing up one or two members who always pay and never spill anything on the carpet.  This certainly does not take the place of temple dues or any other donations you make to BST (including your participation), but it costs you nothing but five minutes- once.  I did it many years ago and have never had any issues from it. 
See here how easy it is to sign up. 

PS- If you want a solid estimate of how much you spend without adding up each purchase, go to the Your Payments page on Amazon and see how much they say you would have earned if you had an Amazon cashback credit card.  Multiply that by 20. That’s how much you spent.
