Brethren Charity Fund has registered with AmazonSmile, a new feature of Amazon's in which they will donate one half of one percent of all eligible purchases to the charity of one's choice. To use it you simply log in with your regular account info, but at the AmazonSmile site instead of at Amazon. Everything else should be the same shopping experience. There are no fees required for BCF to receive the funds raised and it costs you nothing to use. You can read more about it here and even more details here.
If this feature interests you, we are asking you to consider naming Brethren Charity Fund when you shop at AmazonSmile. The following link will automatically register you with BCF. https://smile.amazon.com/ch/31-1381747 If a purchase qualifies you'll see "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" in the product listing. And remember to add an AmazonSmile bookmark to your browser!
Our intention at this time is to apply all Amazon funds we receive to the Overseas Clothing Shipping Fund. It is severely underfunded (still in the red from last shipment) and we are getting closer to being ready for another shipping container. We need to raise over $11,000 before being able to send the clothes. This translates to approximately $30 per bale shipped. If you'd like to support the clothes shipping separately, you can always send tax-deductible contributions to the address below, along with a note that it is for the Clothing Fund.
Thanks for your past and continuing support!
