We recently listed our parish as a charity on AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile allows people who shop on Amazon to designate one charity of their choice to receive 0.5% of the total cost of everything they purchase.
To participate, access Amazon by using the URL smile.amazon.com rather than the usual amazon.com. The first time you access Amazon in this way, you will be prompted to sign in to your Amazon account and then select your charity. (Note: You will be able to retain your Amazon Prime membership.) They will have a few “suggested” charities at the top of the page; ignore those and instead, in the charity search box below, type “Roman Catholic Church of St. Vincent Ferrer and St. Catherine” and you should see us come up. Hit “select”, and from now on any time you buy an Amazon item using the smile.amazon.com URL you will be helping to support our parish.
smile.amazon.com is not a separate website, it is a way of accessing the full Amazon website and designating us as your charity choice. The prices are exactly the same.
If you are someone who shops on Amazon already, please consider using Amazon Smile and listing us as your charity. Let your friends and family know as well! Any questions, please email or call the parish office. Thank you for your support.
