Here are a few other ways you can support ministry to people impacted by disability.
The following online locations have partnered up with Special Touch Ministry. If you use these, please select Special Touch Ministry as your Charity to support. Note: Donations for searching or shopping are not tax deductible.
AmazonSmile is a separate portal from Amazon’s main site, offering the same items, prices, and benefits as Amazon.com, but with one distinct difference. When users shop on AmazonSmile, the retailer’s Foundation contributes 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice.
There is no cost to the charities or customers and 100% of the donation generated from eligible purchases goes to the consumer’s charity of choice. For frequent Amazon users, this is a great way to give back to support Special Touch Ministry while shopping.
How to Set Up Your AmazonSmile Account
Click on the image above to “Get Started.” If you already have an Amazon account, you’ll be asked to sign in. If you don’t have an Amazon account, you will need to set one up. It doesn’t cost anything to set up a basic Amazon account.
Once signed into AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to pick a charity. Choose Special Touch Ministry (you may need to search a list of over 1 million eligible charities). Once you do that, a percentage of your purchase price on many, but not all, items will be donated to the charity of your choice. During future visits to the site, AmazonSmile will remember your charity selection and apply eligible purchases towards your total contribution—it is that easy!
➨ IMPORTANT: You must remember to go to AmazonSmile each time you shop for all of this to work. So, consider bookmarking the site or use Amazon Assistant.
