Amazon Smile for TIGHAR
« on: May 12, 2016, 06:54:42 PM »

Has the Amazon Smile program produced any kind of revenue stream for TIGHAR? I realize that the quantity of funds donated is very, very small, but if enough TIGHAR members use it, especially with the Prime program and its free shipping, that should end up to a decent sum by the end of a year.

Every once in a while we'll get direct deposit of $10 or $12 from Amazon Smile.  Better than a sharp stick in the foot.

Every little bit ...

I've suggested this before, but a direct link to the Smile program on the website home page and the Facebook page would surely help boost that total?

Here is a direct link to the Smile program.

Here is a direct link to a post explaining how to insert direct links into posts.

Thank you, but that's not what I need, or meant.

I suggested that TIGHAR might get more participation in the Smile program if it put a direct link to the program on its home page on the World Wide Web, and on its Facebook page, as many other non-profit organizations have done.

I can only suggest. I don't have the power to do that. But I don't see what harm it can do, and it might help a little.

We'll do that.

So my question is:  Does Amazon Smile include the names of of shoppers on whom the $5 or $10 check is based? My guess is that it does not.  (But I'll still "contribute" both ways.)

I found this interesting.

Thank you for clarifying things as far as TIGHAR is concerned. I will make the appropriate adjustments.
