Dear Space Show Supporters:
When you purchase books and other items through the below Amazon OGLF portal button link or the Amazon Smile Program for nonprofits, Amazon will make a donation to The Space Show/One Giant Leap Foundation (OGLF) (note that the donation is larger through the OGLF Amazon Portal button system). Both are very easy to use.
For the Amazon OGLF portal button, use it to take you to a special OGLF Amazon website page system. Log into your Amazon account as you always do and return to shopping. As long as you do not leave that Amazon site, just click on the Amazon category for your purchase such a books, Kindle, electronics, & more. You can check that you are on the OGLF portal by looking at the full URL to see if it has OGLF coding in it which you will easily recognize. By dong so, Amazon will now code all the purchases you make to the OGLF account for up to a 10% donation of the purchase cost. Amazon will process all your orders through this OGLF site and credit OGLF with a donation on applicable products. Your address and credit card information will remain the same as if you were shopping on www.amazon.com.
To use the Smile program, it is slightly different. The Smile program has its own Amazon website so you must use the button below or http://smile.amazon.com. This special Smile Amazon website is 100% identical in every way to the regular Amazon site so all your products and Prime offerings and everything will be there with the same pricing as on the regular site. However, Smile is dedicated to supporting nonprofits. To use Smile, you need to both log into your Amazon account from Smile but also you will see an option down the page to pick your nonprofit you want to support. You can only pick one nonprofit at a time and you can change it whenever you want. One Giant Leap Foundation is listed in their nonprofit selection database so when you find it, click on it. This will set your Smile Amazon preference for your account and support of OGLF. Every time you go to the Smile Amazon website above, the page will default to both your account and your support of OGLF. Once there, just shop on Amazon as you would through their regular site. You can read the detailed instructions for the use of Amazon Smile at http://smile.amazon.com/gp/chpf/about/ref=smi_aas_redirect?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0.
Shopping through the Amazon OGLF portal button or using the Smile Amazon button are great ways to support The Space Show/OGLF. Your pricing is the same so why not use one of these great Amazon support tools? Select your Amazon method below by clicking on the button you want to use. Let me know if you have any questions about either Amazon program. Do your holiday shopping at Amazon through one of these methods plus your personal all year long gift shopping when you use Amazon. It is truly a great way to help support TSS.
Thank you for supporting The Space Show/OGLF through your Amazon book and product purchases. Your support is very much appreciated. Don't hesitate to email me with any questions you might have about these two great Amazon support programs for nonprofits.
