As an aside, for those who may wish to support their favorite charity through part of your Amazon purchases, use the smile.amazon.com site and specify it.  Once you do this, even if you do a search on amazon.com, you will be reminded that if you wish to support your charity you should repeat your search on the smile site and are provided a control to do just that.


It's really astounding just how many charities they have available, many of them local, and I know that a great many of us make purchases via Amazon with great frequency.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.

Just another note on Amazon Smile, the web links are the same as the www.amazon.com, so if you're sharing the links you can replace smile with www so that they work for people who don't use Amazon Smile.  Amazon Smile donates 1/2% of your purchase, at no additional cost to you, so there isn't a reason not to support your favorite charity.
