Do you shop Amazon.com? Did you know that you can benefit the Eastern Star Charity Foundation when you do, at no additional cost? The next time you plan to shop on Amazon, simply log in as Smile.Amazon.Com. You can then designate the Eastern Star Charity Foundation as the charity you support. From then on, every time you purchase eligible items on Amazon Smile, a small percentage of your purchases will be donated by Amazon to the Charity Foundation. You use your existing Amazon account, there are no additional fees, and it's very easy to do! Please spread the word to family and friends, and any businesses who make purchases on Amazon - as long as they designate the Eastern Star Charity Foundation of NJ as the charity they support, the Charity Foundation will receive those small donations, which will ultimately benefit our members in need. Should you have any questions, please contact Jeannette Wallace, RWGT. Thank you for your help!
