It's now easier than ever to support Lakeview Elementary PTA! AmazonSmile, the simple and no-cost way to donate to the Lakeview Elementary PTA, now works on the Amazon shopping app for iPhone and Android.

That means you can support Lakeview Elementary PTA anytime, anywhere. Through its AmazonSmile program, Amazon donates 0.5% of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice — at no cost to you. You’ll get the same prices, selection and service found on Amazon.com, but now Amazon gives 0.5% of its cut to a good cause.

Previously, AmazonSmile required the user to shop using their browser — either on a desktop computer or through the mobile browser on a smartphone. That meant that when you shopped in the official Amazon app, you weren’t contributing to your chosen charity — even if you had already activated AmazonSmile. By adding AmazonSmile to its official app, Amazon is making the program available anytime, anywhere. So now when you buy your back-to-school supplies while sitting on the patio, our PTA still gets that 0.5%.

If you aren’t yet an AmazonSmile member, sign up at smile.amazon.com using a web browser (mobile or desktop). You’ll sign in with your Amazon credentials, and the site will walk you through the process. Amazon will ask you to choose your favorite charity. This is where you search for “PTA Texas Congress 9283 Lakeview Elementary.”

Once you have chosen your charity, go into the app and activate AmazonSmile in the settings. You will see your charity each time you checkout. And, yes, it even works with AmazonPrime.wink
