I'd like to start my post by thanking everyone who contributed in any way to the success of our fundraiser last Monday, November 21. We were able to raise almost $1800 to continue our work in helping the elderly in need. It was great fun! The Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament was something to see. As one board member put it: "It was complete pandemonium!" It really was, and that's what made it so much fun. Stay tuned, there could very well be anther one sometime next year!
I also wanted to remind everyone about our involvement in the AmazonSmile Program. Not many people are like me; if you can't buy it from Amazon, you really don't need it. But alot of you may be using Amazon more during the holidays. AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support The Silver Closet every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop with AmazonSmile, you'll find the exact same low prices, vast selection, and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to The Silver Closet.
Here is how it works:
Whenever you shop on Amazon - choose the AmazonSmile site for your purchases and a portion of what you purchase goes to the charity of your choice. (Not all purchases qualify for this program though).
You can log into Amazon Smile in two ways:
Log on to Amazon Smile (www. smile.amazon.com)
Log on to Amazon - go to your account (upper right under your name) - choose Amazon Smile in the drop-down list.
You can pick the charity to donate to in the steps below:
Log into Amazon Smile
Go to accounts - near the bottom of that page is a section called "Other Programs"
In other programs - choose "change your AmazonSmile charity"
In the line that says "or Pick your own charitable organization", type in The Silver Closet.
Happy Shopping and thank you from the board of The Silver Closet!
