Or at least one form of happiness, right?!
I've mentioned this a little bit before, but find it oh so fitting to talk a little about Amazon Smiles and Kroger Plus Rewards around this time of year.
This beautiful season marks love, family, laughter, gifts, peace, joy, dancing in the kitchen with music and cookies while the fireplace crackles...
It also means end of year giving for non-profits like us. Or, let's be honest, all non-profits.
So what is Amazon Smiles, why is this so important, and how can I use it at no cost to me?
Why, I'm glad you asked!
Amazon Smiles is a sister site to Amazon. There's not a difference within the two sites except that on Amazon Smiles, when you purchase your groceries, loads of books and cookware (just me?), and clothing (oops, that's me again) you can link Clark Pleasant Education Foundation as your non-profit of choice and Amazon will donate to us. No cost to you! Except your original $207 on Christmas supplies along with a giant light up outdoor candy cane. True story!
Kroger Rewards is very much the exact same way! You buy the groceries, holiday candles, and supply of toilet paper (limit of 2) and they donate!
This year, 2021 we pooled together the donations from Amazon Smiles and Kroger Rewards with teacher grant funds so that we could give out more grants. This is how important it is AND you reap the benefits of it all! Everything goes back into the Clark Pleasant pool.
We would LOVE to give away even more grants next year! Help us help you by giving in such a low key way that you wouldn't even know or spend anymore money than you were planning to anyway. There's no lose! It's an all around win, win, win!
If you are interested, our Amazon and Kroger account will be linked below. Or just click the Giving tab at the top of this website, clarkpleasanteducationfoundation.com, and sign up. It's fast. It's easy! Just the way giving should be!
