    Get Amazon to contribute .5% of your purchaces to NRA/SFA

    www.smile.amazon.com

    Amazon has a new program that donates .5% of your purchase price to a charity of your choosing and surprise, surprise the NRA and SAF are on the list. Considering how much of a lefty Jeff Bezos is, I am frankly shocked. Doesn't appear to be any catch, check it out.

    Well damn! I wish I knew about that week. I just did a bunch of Christmas shopping on Amazon earlier this week.

    The list is of practically every non profit in existence. I signed up for NRA Freedom Action Foundation and got a message that Amazon "would reach out to the charity to determine if they were prepared to accept the donation." This doesn't tell me that the NRA will ever get a penny.

    I just checked my list of Amazon subscribe and save items and those prices are still the same after my signing up for the half of a percentage donation to NRA..........I will keep close watch to see how things go from here on. I do a LOT of shopping on Amazon!
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    ==================

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    I think you get that quote because this is a new program, seems it was just launched in the last couple of days. As people sign up they probably have to contact the organization to set up the donation process.

    Bezos has always seemed to me to be much more about making money by selling products and services than he is about politics. Which is fine by me, can't get any more American than that.

    I didn't know about this charity thing, though, but I like it. I buy lots of stuff on Amazon. The NRA will have to wait, though, because I picked my favorite foundation: the American Alpine Club. :)

    The NRA gets enough of my money. I went with St. Jude Children's Hospital.

    Benzos is a Nut Job................................Regressive Progressive.

    Like was said above, they threw almost everyone, to include the US Communist Party into the list.

    However, I agree with the OP = Dr Jekell's post.

    The other thing - it says that you need to visit smile.amazon.com NOT the regular amazon.com in order for your donations to work. So it is possible that if you forget to type in the smile first there will be no donation made.

    We need to watch the details on this thing.

    NRA is a charity

    Non profit does NOT necessarily mean charity!

    AND not all "charities" are non profit either.
