- Amazon Smile Fundraiser
- Candle Fundraiser
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. Meaning you can help the Bay Head Home and School Association raise money for our student activities by doing something you already do all the time.....ordering from Amazon!
This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year and always a really fun night filled with amazing prizes. But we absolutely can't make it a success without your help! Proceeds from this fundraiser go directly towards enhancing our children’s Bay Head School experience with assemblies, class trips and after school programs.
Please keep us in mind as you're Christmas shopping this year. Scored a great deal? Grab an extra as a donation to the auction! You can also help by soliciting for donations when you're shopping. I have included the solicitation letter but if you would like printed copies please reach out to me and I can get them to you.
As always thank you for your help and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
