Support the Valpo Surf Project Through Amazon Smile!
With the holiday season approaching, many of us will be shopping for gifts online. You can give even more while using Amazon via their giving program, Amazon Smile. When you are logged into Amazon Smile, Amazon donates .5% of your purchases to the charity of your choice at no extra cost to you. It’s a fantastic way to support the Valpo Surf Project (VSP), while going about your holiday business.
Amazon Smile runs year round so be sure to bookmark smile.amazon.com rather than amazon.com so that you are supporting the VSP everytime you shop on Amazon.
We invite you to shop at smile.amazon.com and choose The Valpo Surf Project as your charity of choice. Below you can read about how to use Amazon Smile.
