Latest message from Amazon Smile shows that Amazon has donated a total of $2564.07 since we have used that program to help fund our organization. Those few cents from even the smallest purchases on Amazon really add up! Keep up the great work, and if you aren't currently using Amazon Smile when buying through them, then go here.................https://org.amazon.com/npo/search/ref=org_sls_ulp_btnr_prt

My Amazon smile shows how much I contributed, and while I'm not going to say how much that was, it was far more than I imagined given that it's pennies... Every little bit helps, and as Bruce says, if you're not using it... well, time to start!!

We got over $130 last quarter. We typically get about $100/quarter from those of you that choose to smile when ordering from Amazon. That half penny per dollar adds up to some real money for us and doesn't cost you anything.

If you follow the link in our ads you'll automatically be set up in smile with NCWW selected as your chosen charity.

More people seem to be using Smile and we're now getting well over the typical $100/quarter that we were getting a year ago. Not sure if it is Covid and more people shopping online or just more people taking advantage of this free service. Probably both. Keep it up - we like free money.

I just checked my Amazon Smile Donation total for 2021 and it was $179.37. What a great way to help support this site I do buy a lot through Amazon.

Has anyone else topped this through the Smile Program?

I think that is the total donation from anyone that had NCWW selected in their Amazon Smile program... in the amount of $179.37 as a result of qualifying purchases made by you and other customers who have selected this charity.

Brian is correct. $179.37 is the total donation we received from Amazon smile for the 4th quarter. We received a total of $770.21 in 2021. The 194.06 Martin referred to was received in 4th quarter 2020.

Donating through Amazon smile is a painless way to support NCWW.

Jist bought $220 worth of stuff on Amazon, about 2 hrs ago.

100% forgot about Amazon smile

Raced to cancel the order, just now, and then went to the Amazon smile website..and reordered.

If my calculations are correct, that's $11?

*Happy New Year!*.

A $220 purchase on Amazon Smile yields $1.10 (it is 0.5% of the sale). The $179.37 received by NCWW for last quarter was based on $35,874 in purchases. The $2,564.07 cited by Bruce in the first post was the payment from $512,814 in purchases by NCWW over several years.
