Do you shop on Amazon? If so, it is easy to support UCA with each purchase. A few minutes to set up is all it takes.
How to activate AmazonSmile on your iPhone or Android
Step 1: Join AmazonSmile
If you aren’t yet an AmazonSmile member, sign up at smile.amazon.com using a web browser (mobile or desktop). You’ll sign in with your Amazon credentials, and the site will walk you through the process.
Amazon will ask you to choose your favorite charity. This is where you search for and choose “Union Christian Academy, INC.”
Step 2: Open the Amazon Shopping app on your phone
If you don’t have the app already, download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Step 3: Open Settings within the app
Open Settings by tapping the three horizontal lines (aka the “hamburger”) at the top left and tapping “Settings.”
Step 4: Tap AmazonSmile
Step 5: Tap the button for “Turn on AmazonSmile”
Step 6: Confirm that AmazonSmile is active before your next purchase
Look for AmazonSmile at the top of the app as you browse. You’ll also see your chosen charity on the confirmation screen.
If you type in the word 'smile.' before Amazon.com, you will be brought to the same Amazon site, but on the fundraising side. http://smile.amazon.com
You can see the sites look almost the same...except for the 'smile'.
The first time you go to the 'Smile' side, you will be asked to choose the organization that you want to support. Search for 'Union Christian Academy' and you will be able to choose "Union Christian Academy, Inc, Farmerville, LA".
Then just use Amazon like you always have. Everything is exactly the same. (Change your bookmark so that you go to the Smile site. We only get credit if you order from the Smile side. It must say 'smile.amazon.com' every time.)
Do you have family and friends that wouldn't mind taking a minute and choosing UCA? It cost the purchaser nothing but benefits us, because Amazon will donate to us on your behalf.
