    Since the shop2a dot comm2a dot org link was chopped, I updated my Amazon shortcut to take me to smile dot amazon dot com instead.

    Nice thing is, Smile mentions the donation while the affiliate link says nothing. Good positive reinforcement.

    So, everyone should remember to Smile and designate Comm2A as their charity...

    This public service announcement was paid for by the Never Liawatha Committee.

    That works too. I was really just trying to raise awareness of the Smile program and Comm2a.

    shop.comm2a.org no longer results in a donation? It still links to Amazon...

    Correct. The link still sends you there but according to another thread here on NES, comm2a no longer benefits from it.

    Is this true? I have the old link bookmarked, but will switch to using Smile to keep the Amazon donations coming.

    I recall being told that using Smile Amazon didn't bring as much $ into Comm2A as their own link to Amazon.

    I'm going by this thread:

    What happened to Comm2A Amazon link?

    (Start around post #29 - the earlier posts are unrelated)


    And yes, I know technically this thread is a dupe, but it was deliberate for the purpose of raising awareness so the flow doesn't stop.

    Is there a way to set up the Amazon apps on my phone/tablet to automatically contribute to Comm2A via smile.amazon?

    I'll try that out with something in the next couple days.

    I've tried to get on smile.amazon.com (for Comm2A) few times today, no dice. Anyone else having issues accessing Amazon today?

    I just got an email that stated:

    To date, AmazonSmile has donated a total of:
    • $6,448.39 to Commonwealth Second Amendment Inc
    It does happen. Keep it up, guys.

    Do you have the actual smile link? I tried searching using the "charity lists" but nothing comes up for Commonwealth Second Amendment.

    For some reason it's not coming up when searching the charity list. But if you go to smile.amazon.com and from your account click "Your Amazon Smile", you can change to it there. Below is the text that is on the page when it's selected.

    Thanks. Just changed it on mine as well as my wife's account. With the amount that she spends on Amazon, Comm2A should be able to buy a Ferrari...

    Also when making purchases, be sure to be on the smile.amazon page. When you get to Amazon from a link, it may have you logged in, but it doesn't default to the smile page. I've noticed recently that I've been getting a popup that asks if I want to change to the smile page, which is great to remind you that you are not there.

    "I just supported Commonwealth Second Amendment Inc at AmazonSmile. I shop. Amazon gives."

    I'm sure it was just a penny or two on this purchase (new batteries for Mrs. Pipes vape), but to date, Smile has benefited COMM2A to the tune of $6500. (just to clarify, I mean altogether, not from MY purchases!)

    One minor note: After "
    From your "Amazon Smile", type in "Comm2a" without the quotes and hit the search button. Then Comm2a shows. Remember to select it.

    Great topic. Thanks,

    Jay

    i got a notice in yesterdays email also. seems my donations go to pencils for peace. wtf is that? i don't remember checking that box, in fact it wouldn't let me do comm2a so i just didn't bother trying to let a percentage go to anyone. so i don't know what pencils for peace is, maybe they give pencils out in detroit and chicago schools...i dunno. i'll go google them now.

    Can I change my charity?
    Yes, you can change your charity any time. Your AmazonSmile purchases after the change count towards your newly selected charity. To change your charity, sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser and simply select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.”

    I think when you look it up, you have to use the full verbiage "Commonwealth Second Amendment Inc."
