Using Amazon Smile to Benefit JCGS

Amazon Smile BannerWe are unveiling a great new idea for JCGS. With no extra effoert at all you can now have AMAZON
donate money to our society.
We have created a tech tip for you to follow in order to set this up. No gimmicks, just free money for us. It's like picking up loose change. It works exactly like your regular Amazon account but you must log in at smile.amazon.com. Go to the tech tip area found under members here to view the directions.
