Other Ways to Give

AmazonSmile

If you shop on Amazon, then you’ll love this opportunity to support the Spirits!

There are two ways to support Paraclete High School (a non-profit) with AmazonSmile (there is no charge to you). Both will be explained, but the second method is preferred by most.

Method 1:

From the Amazon Shopping App or website, go to “Settings” and select AmazonSmile and choose to support Paraclete High School. This method requires you to enable notifications (some of which you may not want) from Amazon, and you will have to renew AmazonSmile in your settings twice a year.

Method 2 (preferred method):

A much simpler way to access AmazonSmile is to place the AmazonSmile browser link on your Home screen of your mobile phone. This way you will not have to enable notifications, and will not have to renew your support of Paraclete High School via AmazonSmile twice a year as is required with Method 1.

For Android Phone Users:

  1. Select your usual browser (like Chrome for example) and go to https://smile.amazon.com.
  2. Log into AmazonSmile using your usual Amazon user name and password, and sign up for the giving program and request Paraclete High School as your charity.
  3. Tap the 3 dots in the upper right corner of this browser page and select “Add to Home screen.”

  3. At the bottom of the AmazonSmile browser page, tap the share icon (square shape with an arrow) and select “Add to Home screen.”

Now you’ll see the AmazonSmile widget (access button for the website) on your Home screen. You’ll be shopping with Amazon’s exact same prices with the added benefit that Amazon will donate .5% of eligible purchases to Paraclete High School.
