It’s June – which means Summer is almost officially here! For the Anglicans for Life office in Pittsburgh, summer means a few things: it gives us time to prepare and begin projects that we pray will give life ministry a new, fresh momentum in the fall and personally, it gives us a bit more free time to rest and replenish. However, summer also means that AFL’s financial contributions steadily decline.
Our faithful donors, along with God’s provision, are the sole reason that we are able to continue life ministry at the level which we do: empowering our life and chapter leaders to go into their communities and love mom’s and babies and spreading the message of hope that provides healing to men and women after abortion experiences are not small tasks.
If you’re looking for an easy way to support Anglicans for Life throughout the low donation season, this week’s action idea focuses on that! Amazon has created the Amazon Smile program for 501(c3) organizations. One of the reasons we love it is because of how simple it is! Amazon Smile lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers use the URL smile.amazon.com, instead of just amazon.com, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. Since 2014, Anglicans for Life has been registered with the program, and since that time, we’ve received $622.90 in donations just from our supporters doing their normal shopping! To link your account with Anglicans for Life’s account, just follow this link. Once you click on it, your account will be paired with AFL’s Smile account from that point forward. You’re all set to support AFL with every purchase you make on Amazon! Now, all you have to remember to do is shop from smile.amazon.com and not amazon.com. It may be helpful to bookmark the page to your browser as a reminder. Only purchases made from smile.amazon.com will be eligible for our ministry!
Thank you for your support of Anglicans for Life and the sanctity of life, prayerfully and financially!
