AMAZON SMILE PROGRAM UPDATE
Amazon is shutting down its “Smile” charity donation program as the company cuts costs and rethinks its strategy.
The Smile initiative will shut down by February 20, Amazon said in a statement Wednesday, explaining the “program has not grown to create the impact that we had originally hoped.”
Amazon Smile donated a small percentage of sales made on eligible purchases to a charity that shoppers chose. In total, $500 million has been donated since its 2013 launch, with an average donation of less than $230 per charity, the company said.
“With so many eligible organizations — more than 1 million globally — our ability to have an impact was often spread too thin,” Amazon added. Charities enrolled in the program will get a one-time donation “equivalent to three months of what they earned in 2022,” Amazon said, noting that charities will still be able to accrue donations until the program closes.
The Knights of Vartans and our local churches will be holding a Vartanantz Commemoration on Thursday, February 16th.
Poon Paregenten and the Sunday of Good Living is on Sunday, February 19, 2023. However, because of a conflict with a special event at our neighbor parish in Fowler, it was decided to cancel the spaghetti dinner, bingo, and raffle THIS year at St. Mary Yettem.
Every donated vehicle helps keep our doors open at St. Mary Yettem. Vehicles, cars, trucks, boats, etc., running, or not are eligible for donation. For more information, contact Linda Farsakian-Wall at 559-786-1419.
