Have any of you on this forum either set up or looked into an Amazon Smile account?
I had forgotten about this option form amazon, having signed on several years ago to donate to Wounded Warrior project. Just today I stumbled across reference to it, and I realize that all this time I have not been making my amazon purchases through the correct link. I've been running all my prime purchases through the general amazon link, which apparently doesn't generate a donation. Bummer.
Anyway, as the treasurer, it of course dawned on me that perhaps I could look into setting up a donation for the troop. I feel it would be much better to have come from and through a scout.... but sadly I thought of it first. I still might try to think of a way to drop the hint to a scout secretly, maybe to my son, so they think of it.... but that's beside the point of my question....
I'm wondering about how much money troop have made with it, and I guess I'm a bit concerned about creating too much "visibility" to the IRS. I think we are among the first of a "new breed" of troops that have our own EID that falls under our CO's church EID, so things are a bit different than most troops.
Any experience or thoughts out there?
