The National Home’s Amazon wish list is a great way to buy items that are needed for the day-to-day running of the National Home. You could buy something small like snow shovels or hand sanitizer or organize a fundraiser to purchase bigger-ticket items like playsets for the nursery.
Amazon has a great program that helps raise money for nonprofits while people shop — AmazonSmile. Here’s how it works:
1. AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible purchases to the National Home.
3. Then log in to your Amazon account and start shopping!
