You Shop, We Earn!

Amazon Smile

 

From now until November 2nd, Amazon’s usual 0.5% contribution is being multiplied to 

5% of eligible purchases!

Using Amazon Smile is so easy! The one catch is that purchases MUST be made through  smile.amazon.com, not the app or amazon.com.

Don’t worry. We’ve laid out the simple process of using smile.amazon.com instead of the app right here:

 

  

Here’s how to do it:

Do everything like you normally do on your phone, computer, whatever, including adding items to your cart. DO NOT CHECKOUT!!

On your phone or tablet, open Safari or Chrome, and go to smile.amazon.com. On your computer, make sure the web address is smile.amazon.com.

When you do, you will be prompted to sign in an choose a charity. Pick us – Neely Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (aka Neely PTO). You will only have to do this the first time you use Amazon Smile.

When you’re done with that, click on your cart. Amazon will magically display everything you added from whatever you were using before. (It’s not magic, it’s complex computer code, but it seems like magic.)

NOW CHECKOUT! You will get a happy message saying Thanks for Supporting Neely! and you’ll get that smile on your face that Amazon promised in their name because your kids get something to help their school for FREE!

Everything you love about Amazon works exactly like it always has, but our school and your kids benefit. 

So, try it out. Get a little early holiday shopping done and help us earn a whopping 5% of your purchase!

“HOW SWEET IT IS TO BE TAUGHT BY YOU”


AT NEELY, WE HONOR EVERYONE, ALL IN ONE WEEK

May 7-11

Sure, we call it Teacher Appreciation Week, but it’s really Staff Appreciation. Every person who spends their work hours at Neely is part of the fun! We honor them with daily raffle winners, lunches, treats, notes, and so much more!

You can help by checking out the Sign-Up Genius. On it is a really simple thing: stocking the fridge with all of the staff’s favorite drinks. That’s it!

Your room parent will contact you with specifics for your teacher, so be looking for that email soon. Everything is designed to be easy and inexpensive to allow all children to participate. 

While you’re waiting for that email, you can check out your teacher’s favorite things here:

Amazon Smile

Amazon has set up a way for non-profits to earn funds from their supporters’ purchases. As a 501(c)3 organization, Neely’s PTO is one of the recipients of their generosity.

Using Amazon Smile is so easy! The one catch is that purchases MUST be made through smile.amazon.com.

 

From there, sign in as usual and select the organization you would like your funds to support. You only have to do this once.

Amazon Smile does NOT apply to purchases made with the app or from www.amazon.com. You CAN shop on the app, fill your cart, and switch over to a browser to checkout at smile.amazon.com.

All of your purchases are part of your regular purchase history and all normal return policies apply. More information can be found here.
