Amazon has created a program where if you go in through Amazon smile instead of straight a small percentage of every purchase (taken off Amazon’s share – the price you pay won’t increase) and donate it to your chosen destination. Learn more about it on their FAQs. I’ve thought this was a great idea.
Franklin Historical Society (Franklin County, where Almanzo’s childhood home near Malone, NY is located) publicized that they’ve joined the program and it led me to search for other Laura organizations and quite a few have joined. If you shop on Amazon, please consider going in through Amazon Smiles. Find it online at: http://smile.amazon.com To support Franklin County, search for FCHMS by searching for EIN: 14-1499839 or by keyword.
