Support CARP with your Amazon Purchases

amazon-smileAs if you needed another excuse to shop at

Now every purchase you make from the Earth’s biggest online store can support the charity of your choice, including the Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers (CARP).

Through its new AmazonSmile program, Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible purchase to the 501(c)(3) public charitable organization of your choice.

Sure, half a percent isn’t much and won’t replace your membership dues, eScrip and other contributions that help CARP. But it adds up, costs you nothing and is a great additional way to support the club.

The one-time setup takes just a couple of seconds and you get the same prices, products and service you’re used to when shopping at Amazon. It doesn’t cost you any extra; the only difference is now you’re helping CARP every time you buy.

Save Mart SHARES now Powered by eScrip

Thank you to all the members who have been supporting CARP by using their Save Mart SHARES cards when they shop at Save Mart and Food Maxx. Beginning April 1, the SHARES card will no longer be active and the new SHARES eScrip program will begin.

The new eScrip program will make it easier for you to support CARP. No more cards to have to swipe. Simply register your phone number, rewards cards, debit card, creditcards and select CARP as the benefit and anytime you use them at a participating eScrip merchant a portion of your purchase goes to CARP.

To enroll in the Save Mart SHARES eScrip program simply go to  and register your phone number and Save Mart Rewards Card number (if you have one). Once registered simply enter your phone number in the keypad at checkout and a percentage of your purchase will go to CARP.

Donate to CARP via AmazonSmile

Amazonsmile-logoAmazon’s program called AmazonSmile, will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchases to CARP. It costs you nothing, and it’s just like shopping on Amazon normally, but you get to support the club while doing it.

The only real catch is you have to start your shopping at (which means you have to update your bookmark if you want to do this), and shopping from the Amazon apps, Kindle, or through affiliate links won’t count.

Otherwise, it’s just like shopping on Amazon—only you get to support CARP without doing anything extra (not even donating time or effort).

Go to next time you shop at Amazon and help support CARP!
