Amazon Smile- an easy way to donate to TroopsDirect and our soldiers! Year-round!February 5th, 2016
Did you know that Amazon Prime has a giving program called Amazon Smile Foundation– and through this, you can direct 0.5% of your eligible purchases to TroopsDirect? This program works year-round, so you can kick over a donation to our deployed service members each time you buy something you’d normally buy on Amazon! Here’s what you do:
–Shop Amazon but enter in this URL: www.smile.amazon.com
–Select TROOPSDIRECT as your charity (make sure you do it as all one word!)
–The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to TroopsDirect, which goes right to helping our service members!
You can also help our deployed servicemen and women by donating directly and securely from the TroopsDirect website. We are a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. Better yet? We work tirelessly to make sure that well over $0.90 of every $1.00 goes directly to our troops. We are a lean, no-frills organization. Learn more about our financials by clicking here.
–When medics in a combat zone were waiting over 4 weeks for additional stretchers, stethoscopes, syringes and gauze from their own military supply lines, TroopsDirect filled their request for help in less than 3 hours.
–When one unit was waiting over 12 months for parts to fix a broken down generator, TroopsDirect acquired and shipped the needed parts. IN 72 HOURS.
–When one battalion was resorting to using bottle caps to mark where land mines were emplaced, TroopsDirect was there with over 50 cases of chalk powder for marking these areas and saving American lives.
$20, $50, $100…whatever you can give will be well spent and is guaranteed to save lives of our men and women in uniform. Thank you for helping us!
