Ken Hansen, HPCC Treasurer, recently announced that the High Prairie Community Council’s account with AmazonSmile has been re-established after a short lapse. Funds currently being held by the AmazonSmile Foundation can now be transferred to the HPCC treasury, and future funds will be received quarterly.
AmazonSmile is a program of charitable giving set up by Amazon. It is THE EASIEST POSSIBLE way to support HPCC and Fire District 14! As you shop, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to HPCC. There is no cost to you or to HPCC. All you do is go to smile.amazon.com, instead of amazon.com, when you want to shop. The two websites operate in exactly the same way.
You might say, 0.5% doesn’t add up very fast. That’s true, but after the quick sign-up and making sure you go to the right website, there’s nothing more to do – so why not? If 100 High Prairians signed up and each spent $200, HPCC would get $100. That could be the hot dogs, hamburgers and dessert at the next community get-together.
Quick and Simple Set-up:
1. Click on this link (or type it into your browser’s address line): https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-2078267
2. Sign in using your usual Amazon email/phone and password.
3. Say yes when it asks if you want to support High Prairie Community Council.
4. Optional but helpful – Bookmark the smile.amazon.com shopping page so you can get back to it easily in the future. (Only purchases made at smile.amazon.com are eligible for the 0.5% donation.)
5. You’re done! Start shopping.
