    Smile for us tomorrow


    Tomorrow (Thursday) only your purchase gets us here at NCWW a 5% contribution match for whatever you spend. That is 10 times the normal rate of .5% we normally get when you use smile.amazon.com instead of www and select NC Woodworker as your designated charity.

    Thank you for your support.

    Not sure how I got the thumbnail attached. Click the picture above to go to smile.amazon.com with NCWW pre-selected.

    Re: Smile for us tomorrow

    Bump. All day today your purchase at smile.amazon.com is very valuable to us. Buy that item you've been looking at for weeks today for $100 and we get $5, instead of the normal $0.50.

    But hey, every little bit helps. Smile brings in almost $100 per quarter to NCWW and costs you nothing.

    Smile for us today.

    Learned something today!

    Remember, if you want Amazon to donate to North Carolina Woodworker Inc, you need to start each shopping session at the URL http://smile.amazon.com, and we will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases.
    Visit Your AmazonSmile Impact to see donation information and learn more about your charity.
    Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

    I ordered $350 of Amazon stuff today.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Re: Smile for us tomorrow

    Last year the donation from Smile was $354 for the entire year of 2016. It has been over $100 per quarter at times. Every little bit helps. Those half pennies add up to real money eventually.

    Thanks for your support.

    Re: Smile for us tomorrow

    I bought over $200 worth of items on the 15th (even though I was sitting in my new travel trailer in an RV Park NE Indiana near where I bought it) and added a bit more to my total contribution to NCWW. As of today, I account for bit over 5% of the total that NCWW has received to date for Amazon.com, which I am happy to see happen!
    Every day brings a new adventure -- it is great to be retired!

    Re: Smile for us tomorrow

    Thanks for posting this. I did not know NCWW was an eligible charity. I buy quite a lot of stuff from Amazon. Now my purchases will also support this site.
    All I lack is finishing up.

    Visit my Etsy store Pins, Pens and Needles

    Re: Smile for us tomorrow

    When I open my Google Home Page I have the "AmazonSmile" saved on the top of the page on tool bar so anytime I click on Amazon.com site it comes up AmazonSmile automatically so I don't mess up.
    Always be true to yourself as well as to others. N4RME HAM!
