If You Shop at Amazon – They Will Give Money to DPMHS

August 23, 2017 at 7:57 am

That’s right, if you register at¬†Smile.Amazon.com¬†and designate Daniel Pearl Magnet High School as your charity, 0.5% of the purchase price is given to DPMHS by Amazon. Your shopping experience on Amazon remains exactly the same as always. You can buy all of the same items at exactly the same price. Absolutely the only difference is that Amazon gives money to DPMHS instead of keeping it all for themselves.

I constantly shop at Smile.Amazon and I registered two years ago. It is quick and it is painless. If you shop at Amazon, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE register for¬†smile.amazon.com¬†and designate Daniel Pearl Magnet High School as your charity of choice. If you shop at all on Amazon, and don’t start using Smile.Amazon, you are wasting an incredibly easy way to help.

Here is the link to register: https://smile.amazon.com/


As√≠ es,¬†si se registra¬†en¬†Smile.Amazon.com¬†y designar¬†a Daniel Pearl¬†Magnet High School¬†como su¬†caridad¬†0,5%¬†del precio de compra¬†se da a¬†DPMHS¬†por Amazon.¬†Su experiencia de compra¬†en Amazon¬†sigue siendo¬†exactamente¬†la misma de siempre.Usted puede comprar¬†todos los mismos¬†elementos¬†en exactamente el¬†mismo precio.¬†Absolutamente¬†la √ļnica¬†diferencia es¬†que Amazon¬†da dinero a¬†DPMHS¬†en lugar de mantenerlo¬†todo por¬†s√≠ mismos.

Constantemente compro en Smile.Amazon y me registr√© hace dos a√Īos.¬†Es¬†r√°pido y sin dolor.¬†Si compras en¬†Amazon,¬†POR FAVOR,¬†POR FAVOR,¬†POR FAVOR¬†registrarse para¬†smile.amazon.com¬†y designar¬†a Daniel Pearl¬†Magnet High School¬†como suorganizaci√≥n ben√©fica¬†de su elecci√≥n.¬†Si compras en¬†todo¬†el¬†Amazonas,¬†y¬†no¬†empezar a usar¬†Smile.Amazon, usted est√° perdiendouna manera incre√≠blemente¬†f√°cil de ayudar.
