You can designate Appleseed as your charity with Amazon Smile.

It does not increase the price of your purchases and Appleseed gets some money out of the deal. So far Appleseed has received more than $15,000 through the program.

Here's a direct link to amazon smile:

https://smile.amazon.com

Login using your normal amazon id/password.

If it's your first time on smile you'll need to select a charity to donate to. Select:

Did that as soon as I heard of the program.  I buy on Amazon  but have not seen anything that indicated any of my money is going to RWVA.

Globalists and patriots are mutually exclusive.

Don't be a soft target.

I has info on products saying 'eligible for donation for xxx'.

When you first sign into smile you should see near the top left corner 'Supporting the Revolutionary War Veterans Association' - see attached image.

I can't recall exactly where it shows up at but there is place that shows the amount of your purchases have raised aka donated to the RWVA.
Anchorage Suburbanites, part time Willowbillies, Appleseeds, and Weekend Warrior Turquoise Miners.

If you click "Supporting Revolutionary War Veteran's Association" right under the search bar at the top, you can click "Your Amazon Smile Impact" in the lower right hand corner of the box that pops up.  That has the total RWVA has received and your personal hand in it.

If they only sold ammo, that number would be much larger.....
