    If you are a regular Amazon shopper it pays to buy through Amazon Smile where they make contributions to a charity of your choice. I choose SAF:

    This is the quarterly notification to inform you that AmazonSmile has made a charitable donation to the charity you’ve selected, Second Amendment Foundation, in the amount of $29,464.00 as a result of qualifying purchases made by you and other customers who have selected this charity.

    Its a pretty painless way to help the cause.

    I'm a regular shopper thru Amazon Prime w/ my membership so I never pay shipping. Will this work in my case? I haven't ever heard of Amazon Smile.

    Yes, it still works with Prime, and I also designate SAF as my charity. Just go to smile.amazon.com and login, then search and select your charity.

    Another way is Give with Bing. If you use Microsoft edge as a browser, you earn points, which can be automatically donated at the end of each month, $1 per thousand points (200 searches). And yes, SAF is on that list as well.

    Isn't Amazon kind of anti-gun? I'm more than a little surprised to hear that they're doing this. Even more so Microsoft.

    I thought exactly the same. But when I searched their list of charities, I was amazed to find SAF. I immediately changed my charity. Keep in mind you must sign in to
    smile.amazon.com

    -jb, wouldn't have thought, but get it while we can

    I have been avoiding Amazon for the most part. I was averaging around 50 orders a year for 10+ years, but had 5 orders in 2021 and two orders this year, those being off a $20 gift card my boss gave me plus a few credit card points. I have been buying tons off of ebay instead.

    I have long used Smile, give to St Jude's. Jeff is of course VERY anti rights, not just guns, he does not like freedom. I for a while tried to not shop with him but gave up. There is CostCo, they are super left. Wally, don't like what they do. Finally I just decided I give up, I was only punishing myself not Jeff. So I have a Prime account, and use Smile to at least give some to a charity I like.

    Amazon smile, basically you choose a foundation to which Amazon donates a small portion of your purchase to said foundation.

    Not so. He loves freedom. But only for himself. He's like all elitists, viz. striving for the New World Order where only a few billionaires will rule over us peons. (Why do we think these people have been trying to take our guns all these years?)

    OP. Thanks for the tip. I shop Amazon frequently and will look at the donations to a gun loving crew.

    You did hit one very good Point " All these Years". The Major Gun Control movement has been going on for the last 100 years. The Amazon guy is just a new member.

    I use amazon smile too. And support GOA. Amazon don't seam to be too anti gun. They sell plenty of gun accessories. I bought a few air guns too through them.

    I have Amazon Prime and I use Amazon Smile. I selected the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund as my charity.

    I received this recently in an email:
    This is the quarterly notification to inform you that AmazonSmile has made a charitable donation to the charity you’ve selected, NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, in the amount of $9,260.11 as a result of qualifying purchases made by you and other customers who have selected this charity.

    Probably kind of a "misnomer" but, the people at the top are VERY anti rights. Amazon is like Ebay. They want to make money. So they sell anything that makes them money that the lawyers tell them will not cost them more than its worth. Don't know if they are still doing it but Amazon was selling the crap out of "solvent traps" for years. The owner is VERY anti rights though. He wants to keep making money though so he is of course all in on selling stuff.

    This is how I feel about it,

    I love the people that scream DON'T BUY CHINESE, and type that on a keyboard made in china.

    I buy a metric S load of stuff from amazon both for work and home. Both places goes to no kill animal shelters in my local area. We all have our hot issues.
