The holidays are upon us, which means family, food, and . . . online shopping! When you enjoy Amazon’s deals today on Cyber Monday — and throughout the holiday season — remember that the purchases you make through Amazon.com’s AmazonSmile program can help support FIRE.
Simply start your search for gifts from smile.amazon.com, search for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and select us as your charity of choice. Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of your purchase price to FIRE at absolutely no cost to you. AmazonSmile also saves your charitable preferences, allowing you to support FIRE beyond this holiday season. However, you must start from smile.amazon.com each time you shop in order for your purchase to include a donation to FIRE.
AmazonSmile’s program is a fantastic way to give to a worthy cause that needs your support, with absolutely zero cost in time or money. There is no downside!
Your purchases will not only bring happiness to those around you, but will also support the rights of millions of students across the country. Expressive rights have faced constant challenges this year — with no sign of a reprieve — so every dollar truly counts in helping FIRE to defend and advocate for the rights of students and faculty on campus.
You can also support FIRE throughout the giving season using your Amazon account through Amazon Payments, or by directly using our secure online donation form. Remember, all gifts to FIRE are 100% tax-deductible, but you must donate by midnight on December 31 to secure your 2017 charitable deduction.
Thank you for furthering the cause of liberty on campus!
