“Smile”

Shared by Drea Thiele and Cindy May
When you sign up to support Remember the Poor at smile.amazon.com, 1/2% of whatever you spend on amazon will be donated to RTP.  And it takes less than 2 minutes to sign up.

1.  Go to smile.amazon.com

2.  Pick your own charitable organization> Remember the Poor (bottom right of page). Your original account information–username, password, and order history all remain intact. And every time you log in to amazon, you will receive a reminder to go to smile.amazon.com
Thank you for helping us fund these current projects and meet the needs of the least of these.  Please feel free to share this email– the smile.amazon.com project– with friends, co-workers, family, etc.  The more the merrier.
