Donations from Amazon purchases to Project Pinball.
« on: June 16, 2014, 11:23:11 PM »
I was shopping Amazon the other night and noticed they had a place to sign up for 0.5% of my eligible purchases to go to a charity of my selecting.  Just for grins I punched in "Project Pinball" and sure enough it was recognized!  Being a Federally registered charity I'm not sure why I was surprised, but I was.  Anyway, I signed up and from now on most of my purchases will bring a few extra nickels to the Project Pinball.  As much as I spend at Amazon each year that actually amounts to a bunch of rolls of nickels...

If you are an Amazon shopper, I suggest that you look into the Amazon Smile program and choose Project Pinball or whatever your favorite charity is.

Thanks for pointing this out, John!   We were all unaware but I shared it on FB yesterday so hopefully those tiny rewards will add up if we get enough shoppers!   I don't use Amazon much but I will look there more in the future...

John,

Thank you for bringing that to our attention. Every donation helps us get closer to helping others through pinball.

It took me two seconds to get Project Pinball selected. If you would like to select a charity- type in AmazonSmile, then type in Project Pinball.  Project Pinball will come up and click select and you are done. Then go shop and Amazon will give a donation to your charity in your name at no extra cost to you. Very quick to setup.

I do not spend all that much on Amazon, but I signed up this morning and identified Project Pinball as my chosen charity.

I built a new house last year.  I bought literally a ton of stuff including all the sinks, faucets, dimmers, thermostat, etc, etc.  182 orders totaling $11,000.  Hopefully I can control that spending a little better this year.
