If you’re one of those shoppers who just can’t wait for Amazon Prime Day, we get it. It’s literally a (Amazon) jungle out there, and it’s fun to search for great deals!
This year’s sales actually span two days, June 21-22. As you load up your shopping cart and get ready to click “buy now,” we have a small favor we’d like to ask of you.
Consider linking your Amazon account to AmazonSmile and selecting the Community Choice Foundation as your charity of choice. When you do, Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase to the Foundation.
As you’re saving on simple things and splurges, you’ll also be supporting future scholarships that will be awarded to students who are committed to pursuing their education. When we select a student to receive one of the 25 scholarships that we award each year, we look for those who are not just committed to learning, but who also understand the importance of giving back to their communities – ultimately making Michigan a better place to live and work.
Just search for the Foundation in Farmington Hills, MI, and hit select. It will look like this:
Each year, the Foundation awards $100,000 in scholarship to 25 students in search of higher, continuing their education or who are pursuing a skilled trade.
The Foundation is the heart and soul of our charitable giving. Our goal is to raise $100,000 each year to fund those scholarships. Every purchase you make when you select the Foundation as your charity will help us continue this proud tradition.
To make things even easier, we’ve developed a QR code that will take you straight to the Smile site. Just open the camera app on your phone to scan the code.
If you don’t shop using the Amazon app, follow the directions that pop up when you scan the code and launch the Smile app to your homescreen.
You can also go to Smile.Amazon.com and hit the “Get Started” button.
If you already have the Amazon app on your phone’s homescreen, open the app and find “Settings” in the main menu (☰). Tap on “AmazonSmile” and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile.
Here’s another helpful link that will walk you step by step to set up a Smile account.
Go ahead, shop till you drop and help the Foundation, now that’s a great deal.
