If you are an Amazon.com shopper, you have a new opportunity to support Interim and our mission to provide services for adults with mental health challenges. Interim has just signed up for Amazon Smile, a new program that donates 0.5 percent of every purchase to the nonprofit of the shopper’s choice.
From the shopper’s point of view, it looks just like the Amazon.com interface you know…same search capability, same promotions, One-Click shopping, even Amazon Prime. You shop as you normally shop, and Amazon donates 0.5 percent of your purchase to Interim when you are done. Of course, your confidentiality is protected; Interim never sees how much any individual is participating. We only see the results at the end of each quarter.
If you are shopping for personal items, please consider Amazon Smile as a new way to support Interim or any other nonprofit that you care about. The web site is:
