AmazonSmile - Program Update

Greetings unto the Populace of the SCA,

Now that 2016 has come to a close, we wanted to update you on our partnership with
the AmazonSmile program.

As of November 2016, AmazonSmile has donated an additional $689.33 to the
Society For Creative Anacronism for the period of July 1 to September 30.
The total donated from this program since July 2014 is now $4764.69.

It is your continued participation in this partnership that has made it a
great success. For those of you already participating, we send you a big
thank you. We appreciate your continued support of this partnership and SCA
Inc.

For those who haven’t heard of the AmazonSmile program, here is the
original announcement:

Many of us shop at Amazon for a wide range of products. Did you know that
the SCA can benefit from each purchase you make at no additional charge to
you?

Here’s how: Go to smile.amazon.com. Sign into your account and a “pop up”
page will appear. On the right side of the page, at the bottom is a
“search” window. Type in: Society for Creative Anachronism and click the
search button. Click on the top one and you are done. Your donations will
be automatic for any purchase within the Amazon Smile program (which is
most merchandise). You can also use the following link.
http://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-1698556

Amazon donates 0.5% of each purchase to the non-profit organizations of
your choice and the Society for Creative Anachronism is one of those
organizations. This is a painless way to support our organization. These
donations will be deposited quarterly from the AmazonSmile Foundation into
a separate SCA corporate account dedicated for these donations.

What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?

The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by
Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts
generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile
Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to
the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all
expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the
donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.

Here at SCA Inc., we wish all of you well in 2017 and thank you.

Yours in Service,
John Fulton
President, SCA Inc.
