Holy Cross is Now an AmazonSmile Beneficiary

Help Support Holy Cross while Shopping Online

amazonsmileHoly Cross is now a registered charitable organization with the Amazon.Smile program, through which Amazon donates .05% of the price of eligible purchases to the organization designated by the buyer.

Here's how it works.

> Your shopping experience will be the same, other than logging in through this smile.amazon.com link. 

> Read about the AmazonSmile program here

> More AmazonSmile details here

> If you don't have an Amazon account, create one here.

> Once you have an Amazon account, follow the steps below. 

  1. Enter smile.amazon.com in your browser and log in.
  2. Click on the amber-colored Get started button. 
  3. That opens the “You Shop. Amazon Gives.” page where you will enter your email address. You may enter your mobile number if you will be shopping via your mobile phone. Then click “Continue.”
  4. On the next page, enter your Amazon password. If you don’t know your password, select Forgot your Password and enter a new password. Record it for future use. Have your mobile phone handy, as the system may send you a one-time passcode to use during this process.
  5. Entering your password will open this page: Your AmazonSmile Impact. In the right column, click on Change your Charity and scroll down to the Pick your Own Charitable Organization link. 
  6. Type in Holy Cross Catholic Church. That will bring up a list of churches with the same name; scroll until you see Holy Cross Catholic Church Durham NC. 
  7. Click on Holy Cross Catholic Church Durham NC to select our parish.
  8. If you have been purchasing through AmazonSmile and had selected a charitable organization in the past, the amount that has accrued from your purchases will be shown at the top of the web page, along with the name of the organization you are supporting. Scroll over the "supporting" line to open a page where you can change to the organization you wish to support

Note: When launching this program, Amazon created a list with thousands of charitable organizations that shoppers could support. If you had found your way to the AmazonSmile program and had selected Holy Cross, funds from your purchases have been accumulating in the parish's AmazonSmile account. Now that Holy Cross is a registered AmazonSmile organization, those funds and all future funds accrued by Holy Cross through this program will be distributed to the parish each quarter. 

Thank you for helping Holy Cross to benefit from this funding resource.
