Attention: ALL Amazon Shoppers! With Christmas around the corner - be sure to sign up for the Amazon Smile program! We have partnered with Amazon for another great fundraising opportunity for the PTA. How does it work? Go to www.smile.amazon.com from your app or desktop. You use the exact same account login as Amazon.com. When prompted to select a charity, simply search for Hammerschmidt PTA and begin shopping. All of your account settings are the same as through the regular Amazon.com site. You will find the exact same prices, selection and shopping experience as the traditional Amazon site, but when you use www.smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase price back to the PTA. It is that easy!!!
