Planning to make a purchase at Amazon.com and want to support First Unitarian of Wilmington? Go to smile.amazon.com instead, Amazon's charitable giving web site. Log in with your usual Amazon.com account and select a charity – you can find the church by searching for First Unitarian Church of Wilmington. Shop as normal; the interface and your account are exactly the same as Amazon.com.
Amazon.com will contribute a small percentage of any purchases you make to the charity you've selected. Items that are eligible will show, “eligible for Amazon Smile donation” below the availability information. Most items, except digital purchases like streaming movies, mp3s and subscriptions, are eligible. You can change the charity you're supporting at any time by clicking the name at the top of the screen. The prices are the same, and all your account details are the same as Amazon.com, but you must make your purchases from smile.amazon.com for them to be eligible for donation to our church.
Every 3 months we receive a small donation from Amazon – our first was only $11.90, but each quarter the amount increases. Our most recent donation was $23.57. Those of you who have been shopping on our behalf, thank you! Haven't tried it yet? This holiday shopping season is the perfect time to test it out.
Want to support us even more? Amazon.com gift vouchers are now regularly stocked at the booster card table for purchase during coffee hour. This is great way to pair the Amazon Smile program and booster cards – both in support of First U!
Tell your friends and family too. There are many good causes participating in the Amazon Smile program.
