Valley Center Amateur Radio Club as well as CERT is registered with Smile.Amazon as a fundraiser. If you and others you know make purchases on Amazon, Amazon will donate .5% of your purchase to Valley Center CERT. It doesn't sound like a lot, but we have already received a significant amount of funds! Here's what you do: instead of going to Amazon.com to make a purchase, go to Smile.Amazon.com. All of your previous setup information for Amazon is still there. Just go to the top of the opening Smile.Amazon page and select the charity you want to support. Then select "Valley Center Amateur Radio Club Inc" or "Valley Center Community Emergency Response Team Inc". Simple as that. From then on for every Amazon purchase you make Amazon will donate .5% of the purchase to Valley Center ARC or Valley Center CERT.
