Blaine PTA Raising Funds with Help from Amazon, Bartell Drugs

We are excited to share an easy new fundraising opportunity through AmazonSmile.

About AmazonSmile

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers
enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and
convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is
that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com),
the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible
purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
 

How does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a
charitable organization. PLEASE NOTE, at this time our name is
listed incorrectly as Catherine Blaine. A request has been submitted
to have this corrected to Catharine Blaine. In order to browse or
shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable
organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the
AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price
the customer’s selected charitable organization. 

Go there now!
