Most of you know I am a long-time supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern MN through my book sales and as a Big Brother “Emeritus.” But if you don’t know about it, here’s another way to help BBBS simply by shopping at Amazon.com. I just got a quarterly report from Amazonsmile, which Amazon set up to allow shoppers to help their favorite charities. It shows the combined donations by BBBS supporters that we collectively generated with our Amazon.com purchases. Read the enclosed email I received to find out how easy it is to participate. Every dollar helps your favorite charity (which I hope is BBBS!)
