Fundraising for a boxing club via Amazon
Al Amanecer Boxing Club, a non-profit organization whose goal is to provide fitness and wellness education to Napa-area youth, recently registered as a designated charity on AmazonSmile. This charity arm of Amazon allows people who shop on the website to have 0.5% of their purchase directed to a charity of their choice. It does not add any fees for the buyer.
“It may seem like a small amount, but it adds up and can make a huge difference for us,” the gymnasium said in a press release. “For example, so far in May, between shopping for the gym and his personal needs, coach (Jesús) Solís has generated $37 for the club. Our coaches and office staff are volunteers, and the fees are used to cover our rent, utility and equipment costs.
The club asks the community to consider shopping at AmazonSmile – which offers the same products and prices as Amazon.com – by visiting smile.amazon.com/ch/87-1650404 and designating Al Amanecer Boxing Club as their charity.
Al Amanecer Boxing Club’s mission is to provide young people with a supportive educational environment where they can learn not only boxing technique, strategy and physical conditioning, but also discipline, respect, commitment, effort and responsibility. The club is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
